Project Location: Colonie
Project Description:
The project is intended to address highway improvements to Albany Shaker Road (Co. Route 151) and Watervliet Shaker Road (Co. Route 157) to accommodate projected growth in the project area. The project area includes Albany Shaker Road from Dalassandro Blvd to NYS Route 7 (2.4 miles) and Watervliet Shaker Road from Vly Road to Albany Shaker Road (1.3 miles). DOT and the Federal Highway Administration issued a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the project in July, 1999. Of the various transportation system improvement alternatives discussed in the DEIS, DOT selected two which it determined were feasible and met project objectives: Alternative 2 - new four-lane roadway through Airport Park; and, Alternative 4 - new four-lane roadway east of Airport Park. Both would include closure of existing Albany Shaker Road at Airport Runway 10. All wetlands that would be impacted are federal wetlands. Alternative 2 would directly impact approx. 8.0 acres of wetlands and would result in 12.8 acres of wetlands in its right-of-way. Alternative 4 would directly impact approximately 10.8 acres of wetlands and would result in 21.5 acres of wetlands in its right-of-way. Proposed mitigation for wetland impacts includes one-for-one or greater wetland creation. This mitigation may be associated with state regulated wetland A-10 (Ann Lee Pond). The Department cannot make a final determination on this proposal until the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) has been completed and the Department has prepared a findings statement on it.

Last Filing Date: 03/17/2000
Project Location: Niskayuna
Project Description:
The department has received an Air State Facility permit application for the Knolls Atomic Power Lab facility which is owned by the U.S. Dept. of Energy and is located on 2401 River Road in the Town of Niskayuna. The principal function of the facility is research & development in the design and operation of naval nuclear propulsion plants. The facility includes laboratories, machine shops, administrative offices, wastewater treatment and oil storage facilities, cooling towers, a sewage pumping station, waste storage facilities & a boiler house. This application involves the construction of a new boiler house to be located adjacent to the existing boiler house & the installation of 3 new firetube boilers to generate steam for the facility. Each boiler will have a heat input level of 35 million Btu per hour (mmBtu/hr). The existing boiler house contains 4 watertube boilers with 3 of the boilers having a heat input level of 34 mmBtu/hr & 1 boiler with a level of 11.2 mmBtu/hr. Once the new boilers are on line and functioning properly the existing boilers will be taken out of operation. In order to remain below the Title V & New Source Review applicability thresholds the appicant has proposed to restrict the potential to emit through enforceable permit conditions which will limit or cap emissions at a level which is less than 100 tons per year each for carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide & oxides of nitrogen. The emission caps will be accomplished by placing the new boilers under the caps for the existing boilers which limit fuel usage & total Btu heat input. The applicant will be required to maintain records & report these data to verify compliance with the permit limits & condtions. By accept- ing these enforceable limits the facility will not be subject to Title V permitting or New Source Review requirements.
