The agreement calls for a Library-Environmental Center and improvements to park access and interpretation. The project is located in Cold Spring Harbor State Park east of Harbor Road (NYS Rt. 25A), north of Terrace Place, and south and west of the northern end of the Nassau Suffolk Greenbelt Trail.

Notice is hereby given that a public information meeting will be held on Thursday, December 5, 2002 at 7:00 p.m. in the Cold Spring Harbor High School Auditorium, 82 Turkey Lane, Cold Spring Harbor.

Restrooms for park patrons will also be provided at the Center, along with space for Parks to display interpretive materials for the Greenbelt trail, maps and other brochures, and to conduct seminars and meetings. The Library will establish a collection of books, videos and other materials related to the ecology and natural history of Long Island and serve as a Resource Library with a specialty in environmental and historic preservation studies.

SERP ACTION - Negative Declaration

Nassau County - Pursuant to the NYS Clean Water/Drinking Water State Revolving Fund and the State Environmental Quality Review Act, the Village of Northport, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Northport-Wastewater Treatment Plan Upgrade Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves upgrade of the Village's extended aeration sewage treatment plant to treat increased flows and to decrease the nitrogen load discharged to the Northport Harbor.

The proposed upgrade will bring the Village into compliance with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) Long Island Sound Study to reduce nitrogen loadings to Long Island Sound. The plant is permitted to discharge 340,000 gallons per day of treated wastewater to Northport Harbor. The existing treatment processes cannot effectively handle the large diurnal flows and were not designed to remove nitrogen to meet the Long Island Sound Study requirements. The following treatment plan upgrades are being considered:
