The New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) propose to amend the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Final Intended Use Plan (IUP) dated September 24, 2003, to adjust the estimated project cost for two DWSRF projects listed in the Project Readiness List. A project description and explanation of the reason for the cost increases are included in the table below:
|(T) Scriba||Oswego||New storage, new pump station, upgrade pump station, new distribution||15394||$5,800,000||$6,800,000||The cost increase is the result of an update of the original project estimate by the engineer. It is attributed to inflation and an increase in material costs, including significant increase in steel prices since the original project estimate.|
|(V) Antwerp||Jefferson||Upgrade water treatment plant, upgrade ground water source, upgrade transmission, upgrade pump station||15057||$2,508,000||$2,598,000||The cost increase is the result of an update of the original project estimate by the engineer.|
The Department has determined that the project cost increases are necessary, reasonable and consistent with the original project concept. In addition, the scope of the projects has not changed, nor have we altered the project priority rankings in any way. These project cost increases will not adversely affect any other project on the IUP Project Readiness List above the funding line. Except for the above-noted changes, there are no other changes to projects listed on the Project Readiness List or to the project priority rankings.
Written statements or comments on the above DWSRF project cost increases will be accepted by fax or mail until close of business on September 9, 2004 and should be filed with:
