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 two 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
(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.
(T) Beaver
Falls
Lewis New Water Storage
Tank and Piping,
Upgrade
Distribution System
16351 $784,000 $800,000 The actual bids for the project
were higher than the original
estimate.

The Department has determined that the 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 increases will be accepted by fax or mail until close of business on August 2, 2001 and should be filed with:

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

An Emergency Adoption was filed with Department of State and became effective on July 6, 2001 to amend 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. This emergency rule was proposed for permanent adoption in the State Register on November 15, 2000. It allows for this rule to be in effect while it goes through the rulemaking process for permanent adoption.

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.

This emergency rule will be effective for 60 days from date of filing with Department of State; until September 4, 2001.
