Application ID: 5-2032-00148/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 15 Water Supply
Project is Located: Long Lake, Hamilton County
Project Description:
Proposed improvements to the Raquette Lake Water District # 1 (also known as Town of Long Lake Water District # 1), serving the settlement of Raquette Lake.  The project includes installation of two groundwater wells (taking up to 20,000 gallons per day), 1250 feet of transmission pipe, and a new control/treatment building.  The new wells will enable the District to abandon an existing, unfiltered surface water source (reservoir) that does not comply with current safe drinking water standards.  Also, proposed removal of an existing chlorination building adjacent to Sagamore Road, and replacement of approximately 2500 feet of undersized distribution lines in the settlement of Raquette Lake.  The project will not increase the size of the District, and no new residences will be served.  Most of the improvements will occupy state Forest Preserve land (Moose River Plains Wild Forest).  As a result, the project also includes a proposal to reclassify 0.94 acre of land from Wild Forest to State Administrative.  The project is located in the settlement of Raquette Lake and along Sagamore Road.
