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 28, 2001, to adjust the estimated project cost for four 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 DWSRF No. Current Proposed Explanation

Gypsy Trail Club

Putnam Upgrade Water Treatment Plant, Upgrade Storage, Upgrade Pump Station, Upgrade distribution 16988 $1,525,500 $1,633,340 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 Great Neck Iron removal, New water Treatment plant 16210 $1,017,000 $1,694,484 This project is currently under construction. The actual construction costs are higher than the original estimate made in 1997. The increases are primarily due to inflation and increased equipment costs.
Suffolk County Water Authority Suffolk Church street Iron removal, New Water treatment plant 16828 $1,317,580 $1,540,221 This project is currently under construction. The actual construction costs are higher than the original estimate made in 2000. The increases are primarily due to inflation and increased equipment costs.
Suffolk County Water Authority Suffolk Lakeview Iron Removal, Bayport, New water treatment plant 16830 $1,317,580 $1,514,943 This project is currently under construction. The actual construction costs are higher than the original estimate made in 2000. The increases are primarily due to inflation and increased equipment costs.

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. A portion of the proposed IUP cost increase for the Suffolk County Water Authority 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 increases will be accepted by fax or mail until close of business on June 20, 2002 and should be filed with:
