New York State Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan

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 27, 2004, to correct a project description, to add a project, and to adjust the estimated project cost for five 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
Saratoga Glen Hollow Water Corp. Saratoga Extend system to serve area with private contaminated wells, consolidate public water supply, eliminate public water supply with past total coliform detection 17143 $691,492 $1,096,804 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) Patterson Putnam Upgrade Ground Water Source, Upgrade Distribution System 16985 $289,000 $365,000 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) Moreau Saratoga Extension to serve properties in WD #5 & WD #6, and consolidate several exisitng public water systems 15980 $5,400,000 $5,400,000 Remove WD 5 from the project description. WD 5 was served by another non-DWSRF funded project. This change does not alter the scope of the project.
(T) Huron Wayne Extend system to serve area with private contaminated wells, consolidate public water supply. Eliminate public water supply that is in violation of the SWTR. 16917 $830,180 $931,500 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) Campbell Steuben New Distribution System, New Ground Water Source, New Storage 16289 $3,100,000 $3,100,000 Place the project on the readiness list with a score of ‘H’ and 145 points on the multiyear list. This project was left out of the IUP due to a data input error. It is a hardship project that received a confirmation letter on April 12, 2004.
(T) North Greenbush Rensselaer New system to serve inadequate private wells in Northeast corner of Town, New Interconnection, System Consolidation, New Water District (Water District # 14) 17229 $5,665,000 $7,313,000 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 project cost estimate did not include the required Issuance cost.
(T) North Greenbush Rensselaer New system to serve area with private contaminated wells (Snyder's Lake Area), New System Consolidation, New Water District (Water District # 13) 17077 $4,583,100 $4,635,000 The original project cost estimate did not include the required Issuance cost.

The Department has determined that the project description change and project cost increases are necessary, reasonable and consistent with the original project concept. In addition, the scope of the projects has not changed. Although we have altered the project priority rankings to accommodate the addition of a project, the project addition and 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.

Written statements or comments on the above DWSRF project description change, project addition, and project cost increases will be accepted by fax or mail until close of business on May 19, 2005 and should be filed with:
