|Rules & Regulations - Notice of Proposed Adoption|
This action is proposed to: manage harvest of small game animals, frogs, game birds, migratory game birds and furbearing animal; implement new legislative authority to set frog seasons by regulation; make season date adjustments to better match population status and hunter and trapper interest; and to simplify regulations.

New York State Drinking Water State Revolving Fund |
Intended Use Plan
The New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) propose to amend the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Final Intended Use Plan (IUP) dated September 9, 1999, to adjust the estimated project costs for 16 DWSRF projects listed in the Project Readiness list. A project description and explanation of the reason for the cost increases are included in the table below:
|DWSRF #||County||Borrower||Project Description||Current IUP Cost||Proposed IUP Cost||Explanation|
|15403||Albany||(T) New Scotland||Extend distribution system||$888,890||$938,890||Anticipated EPA funding was not received.|
|16687||Chenango||(T) Norwich||Extend distribution system||$1,171,760||$1,567,468||The increase in cost is due to actual bid prices received being greater than originally estimated.|
|15237||Chenango||(V) Sherburne||New groundwater source, New transmission, Upgrade Storage, Upgrade distribution system||$2,310,054||4,000,000||The original cost estimate was based on outdated information. The Engineering Study completed in November 1999 estimated the work at the higher cost.|
|16249||Clinton||Pray's Mobile Home Park||New Groundwater Source||$50,134||$104,497||Additional project costs for work already completed has now been determined to be eligible under the DWSRF program.|
|15024||Delaware||Halcottsville Homeowners Association||New storage, upgrade distribution||$142,380||$297,000||Since pre-application submission, the engineer has determined that the distribution main must be replaced in order to provide adequate pressure for the system. The addition of the distribution main is integral to the original project.|
|15006||Delaware||(V) Hobart||New WTP, New groundwater source, New transmission||$723,200||$1,400,000||During the design phase which occurred after the original preapplication submittal it was determined that additional work must be accomplished to complete this project.|
|16084||Erie||(T) Newstead||New water district||$3,150,000||$3,400,000||Project is currently under construction, additional money is needed to complete the waterlines that are part of the approved plans and specifications for this project.|
|15800||Essex||(V) Lake Placid||New WTP||$3,772,943||$4,545,960||Bids received were $773,017 above the original estimates to complete the project.|
|15845||Essex||(T) Keene||New groundwater source, Upgrade transmission, Upgrade distribution system||$972,930||$1,102,930||Based on higher bids then expected and more rock removal then expected the project cost has increased.|
|15839||Essex||(T) Lewis||New groundwater source, Upgrade distribution system||$172,839||$765,702||Project cost increased to $765,702 to allow the installation of more wells to meet demand and eliminate reliance on backup surface water source.|
|16732||Greene||(V) Hunter||New WTP||$3,755,207||$3,830,673||A more detailed investigation of the upgrades needed to complete the project results in increased costs.|
|16717||Jefferson||(T) Hounsfield||New distribution system||$5,437,970||$5,695,100||Since the pre-application submission, additional analysis was done by the engineer. An additional 10 homes will be served by the project, more rock excavation was located, and additional DOT requirements for right of way's will be needed.|
|16673||Orange||(C) Middletown||New transmission, New storage, New distribution system||$8,844,424||$9,994,200||A computer error involving the 13% contingency amount included in all projects in the IUP resulted in the project cost being erroneously reduced by 13%.|
|16674||Orange||(C) Middletown||New WTP, New transmission, Upgrade distribution system||$8,736,222||$9,950,000||A computer error involving the 13% contingency amount included in all projects in the IUP resulted in the project cost being erroneously reduced by 13%.|
|15696||Saratoga||(T) Halfmoon||Extend distribution system||$1,425,952||$1,644,000||The project cost increase is due to inflation of construction costs since original pre-application submission which was in 1997. Revised bids for similar projects in the area justify the increase.|
|15412||Westchester||(V) Mount Kisco||Upgrade pump station, New WTP||$13,511,733||$17,189,722||Additional treatment units added to the design to meet regulatory requirements resulted in the cost increase.|
The Department has determined that these project cost increases are necessary, reasonable and consistent with the original project concept. In addition, the scope of the projects has not changed, nor have we altered the project priority rankings in any way. These project cost increases will not adversely affect any other project on the IUP Project Readiness List above the funding line. Except for the above-noted change, there is no other change to projects listed on the Project Readiness List or to the project priority rankings.
Written statements or comments on the above DWSRF project cost increase will be accepted by fax or mail until close of business on March 16, 2000 and should be filed with:
