Orange County - The Town of Monroe Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Monroe Water District No. 12 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the establishment of the Monroe Hills Town Water District (Water District #12) as a municipal water system, in order to upgrade the existing inadequate private water system. The existing private water system supplies approximately 42 families and is served by two existing wells, one of which is plugged. This deficiency causes severe water shortages within the system and fails to meet current standards for public water supply systems, prompting the NYS Department of Health to require the system to be upgraded. The action includes financing the acquisition of the private system and establishing it as a municipal one, and completing certain improvements to the system. These include either re-drilling the blocked well or drilling a new one in the district’s existing well-field area, installing meters for all users, and shut-off valves where needed. The Town of Monroe Town Board is seeking financing from the State of New York Department of Health and Environmental Facilities Corporation New York State Drinking Water State Revolving Fund for the purpose of carrying out this improvement project.
