Notice Of Acceptance Of Draft EIS And Public Hearing

Tompkins County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Ithaca Area Municipal Wastewater Collection System Improvements and Intermunicipal Agreements. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on July 31, 2003, at 7:00 p.m. at the Ramada Inn, 2310 N. Triphammer Rd, in the Village of Lansing. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until August 11, 2003. The proposed project includes elements of a regional approach for wastewater collection and treatment for six municipalities, including the City and Town of Ithaca, Town and Village of Lansing, Town of Dryden, and Village of Cayuga Heights. The involved municipalities have selected a partial diversion alternative that is identified in the DEIS. Elements of the project include establishment of a new municipal sewer service area in the Town of Lansing, diversion of some of the wastewater generated within the Towns of Lansing, Ithaca and Dryden from Cayuga Heights Wastewater Treatment Plant (CHWWTP) to the Ithaca Area Wastewater Treatment Plant (IA WWTP) through the installation of new transmission and diversion sewers, extension of existing service areas in the Towns of Ithaca and Dryden, and inclusion of additional sewer units in the Village of Lansing. Actions related to the above include approval of plans for the extension of sewers as described in the DEIS, and funding portions of the above through the NYS Clean Water/Clean Air Bond Act. No substantive changes to the IA WWTP's SPDES permit are anticipated since that facility currently has adequate capacity, performs satisfactorily, and there will be no increase in allowable mass loadings to Cayuga Lake for phosphorus, BOD or Total Suspended Solids from the IA WWTP as a result of this project. More information about the project is available in the DEIS. The project is located in the Town of Lansing, Village of Cayuga Heights WWTP, Ithaca Area WWTP, Towns of Ithaca and Dryden, and Village of Lansing.
