Public Notice - Drinking Water State Revolving Fund

Municipalities and Owners/Operators of Public Drinking Water Supply Systems

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 cost for one DWSRF project listed in the Project Readiness List. A project description and explanation of the reason for the cost increase are included in the table below:

Borrower County Project Description DWSRF # Current IUP Cost Proposed IUP Cost Explanation
(V) Herkimer Herkimer New Surface Water Treatment Rule Compliance Facility 16676 $3,095,637 $4,452,064 The actual bids for the project were higher than the original estimate.

The Department has determined that the project cost increase is necessary, reasonable and consistent with the original project concept. In addition, the scope of the project has not changed, nor have we altered the project priority rankings in any way. This project cost increase 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 July 26, 2001 and should be filed with:

Mr. Michael E. Burke, P.E.
Director
Bureau of Public Water Supply Protection
Flanigan Square, 547 River Street, Room 400
Troy, New York 12180-2216
Fax Number: (518)402-7659

The revised Project Readiness List may be obtained by calling DOH's toll free information line at 1-800-458-1158, extension 27676 (within New York State only) or (518) 402-7676.

Public Notice

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

Pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law, Articles 1, 3, and 27, the Department of Environmental Conservation hereby gives notice of the following:

A Notice of Continuation was filed with Department of State to continue a proposed rulemaking regarding 6 NYCRR Part 380 to regulate the disposal of the radioactive wastes generated by the extraction or concentration of uranium or thorium where such waste is not regulated by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The purpose of the rule is to control the disposal of wastes contaminated with the radioactive wastes from the extraction of uranium and thorium from ores. The rule requires that these radioactive wastes be disposed of at facilities authorized to accept radioactive waste, and will effectively exclude them from Part 360 and Part 373 landfills, unless a variance to Part 380 is requested and granted. Variances may be granted for slightly contaminated wastes, if the proposed disposal will have no significant adverse impact on the public health and safety or the environment.

For further information, contact: Barbara Youngberg, Division of Solid & Hazardous Materials, 625 Broadway, 8th Floor, Albany, New York 12233-7255, phone: (518) 402-8579. E-mail: bayoungb@gw.dec.state.ny.us

Adoption of Regulations Governing the harvest, possession, and sale of marine finfish in New York waters.

For further information contact: Byron H. Young, Bureau of Marine Resources, 205 N. Belle Mead Rd., Suite 1, E. Setauket, NY 11733, phone: (631) 444-0436.

Effective Date of Regulations: June 20, 2001

Notice of Acceptance of Draft Generic EIS and Public Hearing

Statewide - The State Fire Prevention and Building Code Council, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Generic EIS on the proposed Repeal and Adoption of Fire Prevention and Building Code and Energy Conservation Construction Code. The action involves the repeal of the existing text of the Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code ("Uniform Code") (9 NYCRR Part 600 et seq.) and the State Energy Conservation Construction Code ("State Energy Code") (9 NYCRR Part 7810 et seq.) and adopts new provisions for both sets of regulations. The Uniform Code regulates the construction of all buildings and structures in the State outside the City of New York. The State Energy Code regulates the construction of all buildings in the State (including the City of New York) for the purposes of minimizing the consumption of energy and providing for the efficient utilization of the energy expended in the use and occupancy of buildings. The project is applicable statewide.

A hearing to receive public comment on the proposed revision of the Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code and the State Energy Conservation Construction Code and on the draft generic environmental impact statement prepared for such proposed action will be held on Monday, August 20, 2001 at 8:00 a.m., at the University at Albany - School of Public Health, George Education Center (GEC) Auditorium, One University Place, Rensselaer, New York. In addition, a video conference connection will be established at the following locations which will allow individuals appearing at such sites to monitor the proceedings in Rensselaer and to submit comment on the proposed rule makings:
