New York City County - The NYC Department of Environmental Protection, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed City Water Tunnel No. 3, Stage 2, Shaft 27B will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. Public Comment Period ends November 26, 2004. The action involves the construction of a vertical water supply shaft to connect to City Tunnel No. 3. Shaft 27B would provide access for operation and maintenance of City Tunnel No. 3. Shaft 27B would be approximately 540 feet deep, of which approximately 75 feet would be in soil and the remaining 465 feet in solid rock. Upon construction of the shaft, a subsurface distribution chamber would be built on top of the shaft. The distribution chamber would be approximately three feet below grade with entrance to the chamber through two hatchways at ground level. Upon project completion, the proposed site would be vacant except for two 6x3 foot hatchways and a 10 foot, 14 inch diameter air vent.

Shaft 27B is one of the proposed ten supply shafts of the Manhattan South Tunnel, which is an underground water tunnel designed to increase the New York Cityís water supply systemís capacity, enhance peak flow capacity, improve pressure in outlying areas, permit the inspection and repair of City Water Tunnels 1 and 2, and provide back-up service in the event of system failure. The project is located at Gansevoort Street, Manhattan, Block 627, Lot 25.
