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 20, 2000, to adjust the estimated project costs for 11 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:

Borrower County Project Description DWSRF # Current IUP Cost Proposed IUP Cost Explanation
Upper Mohawk Valley Regional Water Board

Oneida New covered storage to replace existing uncovered southern reservoir 15808 $2,172,312 $2,900,000 The project cost differential is necessary to cover issuance fees and the required borrower debt service reserve funds (the latter do not receive subsidy from the DWSRF).
(T) Greenville Greene Upgrade GW source, extend distribution, system consolidation 16688 $713,000 $718,175 Hardship confirmation amount is more than amount in IUP. Project costs were refined at the time of hardship application.

(T) Granville Washington New ground water (GW) source 16616 $736,350 $832,076 Hardship confirmation amount is more than amount in IUP. Project costs were refined at the time of hardship application.
(T) Richmondville Schoharie New distribution system 15147 $1,561,000 $1,946,000 Hardship application amount is higher than IUP amount. Project costs were refined at the time of hardship application.
(V) Whitney Point Broome New storage, upgrade distribution system 15010 $1,817,000 $2,071,250 The cost increase is the result of the engineer updating the original project estimate as plans and specifications were prepared.
(T) Norfolk St. Lawrence New GW source, upgrade distribution system 15802 $706,250 $715,000 Initial pre-application did not include issuance fees.
(T) Roxbury, Grand Gorge WD Delaware New water treatment plant, new GW source 15624 $1,700,000 $2,100,000 The cost increase is the result of the engineer updating the original project estimate as plans and specifications were prepared.
Suffolk County Water Authority Suffolk New transmission and distribution system 16821 $2,290,802 $3,677,791 The cost increase is the result of the engineer updating the original project estimate as plans and specifications were prepared. In addition, an amount necessary to provide for the required borrower debt service reserve funds that do not receive subsidy from the DWSRF is included.
Suffolk County Water Authority Suffolk New GW source 16857 $56,297 $999,619 Reporting error in pre-application resulted in incorrect project cost appearing on the IUP. In addition, an amount necessary to provide for the required borrower debt service reserve funds that do not receive subsidy from the DWSRF is included.
Suffolk County Water Authority Suffolk New transmission and distribution, upgrade distribution 16873 $644,942 $1,088,872 The cost increase is the result of the engineer updating the original project estimate as plans and specifications were prepared. In addition, an amount necessary to provide for the required borrower debt service reserve funds that do not receive subsidy from the DWSRF is included.
Village of Cornwall -on-Hudson Orange New aluminum structural cover for storage basin 16891 $360,809 $485,000 The actual bids for the project were higher than the original estimate.

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. A portion of the proposed IUP cost increase for the Suffolk County Water Authority and the Upper Mohawk Valley Regional Water Board projects is related to required borrower debt service reserve funds that do not receive subsidy from the DWSRF. 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 June 7, 2001 and should be filed with:
