Rensselaer County - The Town of Schodack, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed adoption of Water Quality Control Law Chapter 223 which replaces two existing water quality control/protection laws, Chapters 221 and 222 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves adoption of Local Law Chapter 223 by the Town Board. This is a water quality protection law that replaces two existing laws. It creates a zoning overlay district which establishes three zones to protect groundwater resources and surface waters that flow over the aquifer. The law establishes use restrictions, requires additional regulatory reviews and prohibits certain uses, with the intent of protecting water quality within the general aquifer area and within wellhead protections areas that surround community drinking water supplies. The project location is approximate eastern 2/3 of the Town of Schodack.
