New York State Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan

Draft Amendment #1 to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan issued September 27, 2004 was published in the December 8, 2004 issue of the Environmental Notice Bulletin. The comment period for the Draft Amendment #1 closed on December 23, 2004. The New York State Department of Health received no public comments pertaining to this amendment. Therefore, the amendment to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan is final as shown below:

“The New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) amended the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Final Intended Use Plan (IUP) dated September 27, 2004, to correct the system name, borrower name, and county name for two DWSRF projects and to adjust the estimated project cost for two DWSRF projects listed on the Project Readiness List. A project description and explanation of the reason for each change and cost increase are included in the table below:

Borrower County Project Description DWSRF # Current IUP Cost Proposed IUP Cost Explanation
(T) Volney Oswego New system to serve an area with private contaminated wells, system consolidation. 17099 $3,330,000 $4,221,000 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 a significant increase in steel prices since the original project estimate.
(T) Andes Delaware Phase 3 of project#15916. Upgrade Distribution System 17423 $104,648 $104,648 The project was incorrectly listed under Greene County. The amendment for this project is to list it under Delaware County. Also there was no borrower listed in the IUP. The borrower for the project is amended to be Andes (T) and the system name is amended to be Andes Town Water District 1 due to the dissolution of the Village of Andes.
NYCMWFA New York City Croton Filtration Plant. New Surface Water Treatment Rule Compliance Facility 16479 $38,298,000 $38,298,000 The project’s System Name was incorrectly listed as New York City- Catskill/Delaware System. The amendment for this project is to list the system name as New York City-Croton System.
(T) Bangor Franklin Replace existing GUDI source with new wells. Provide service for existing homes on private contaminated wells, and new storage and distribution System 17390 $1,295,000 $2,840,000 The cost increase is the result of an update of the original project estimate by the engineer. It is attributed to a refined cost estimate, inflation and an increase in material costs since the original project estimate. In addition, the original conceptual area of service has been increased to include additional homes with private contaminated wells then those in the original preapplication.

The Department has determined that the name changes and 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. The 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.”
