Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Temporary Mobile Emergency Generators project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The project has been classified as a Type II emergency action under 6 NYCRR 617.5(c)(33) because LIPA is undertaking this action in response to emergency conditions caused by the failure of a major transmission line under the Long Island Sound, resulting in a loss of 500 megawatts of power to the Long Island grid. In response to the emergency situation from the loss of the major transmission line, LIPA intends to lease, for a period of up to 90 days, ten truck-mounted simple cycle General Electric TM 2500 mobile turbine generators and associated ancillary equipment to be located at three sites in Suffolk County and operate the generators when peak customer demand cannot be met through LIPAís other resources. The three sites where these generators will be temporarily placed are located adjacent to substation and generating facilities at the Shoreham Generating Facility in the Town of Brookhaven (three units), the Wading River Generating Facility in the Town of Brookhaven (four units) and the Holtsville Generating Facility in the Town of Brookhaven (three units). Each facility will generate less than 80 megawatts of power to the electric grid. Although the project is a Type II action, LIPA nevertheless prepared an environmental assessment to identify any potentially significant adverse environmental impacts associated with the emergency generators and to incorporate feasible measures into the projectís design in order to avoid or minimize any such impacts. That assessment examined all areas of potential environmental concerns, including air quality and noise, and found that no significant adverse environmental impacts would result from the proposed project.

Suffolk County - The Planning Board of the Town of Brookhaven, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Site Plan Application of New Beginnings at Coram will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.
