Notice Of Acceptance Of Final Supplemental EIS

New York City (Kings) County - The New York City Department of Environmental Protection, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Track 3 Upgrade For The Newtown Creek Water Pollution Control Plant. NYCDEP, on behalf of the City of New York, is proposing to make modifications to the planned long-term upgrade of the Newtown Creek WPCP located in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. The upgrade is necessary to bring the WPCP in compliance with the secondary treatment requirements of the Clean Water Act (85 percent removal of biochemical oxygen demand and total suspended solids). The proposed Track 3 Upgrade is a modified step-feed process designed to provide treatment for an annual average flow of 310 million gallons per day (mgd) and a peak wet weather flow of 700 mgd. The Track 3 Upgrade offers a potential savings in the cost of upgrading the plant, would reduce potential construction-related impacts on the surrounding community, and would bring the Newtown Creek plant into full compliance with the secondary treatment requirements of the Clean Water Act in a shorter timeframe. Construction for the long-term WPCP Upgrade has been ongoing since 1998.

In addition, as part of the Track 3 Upgrade, NYCDEP is proposing to upgrade and enlarge the Manhattan Pump Station, which conveys flow from Manhattan to the plant. The pump station is located on Avenue D between 12th and 13th Streets.
