Negative Declaration

Monroe, Livingston, Ontario Counties – The City of Rochester, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cathodic Protection of Water Transmission Conduits will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The purpose of this project is to inhibit further corrosion of portions of the City's metallic water supply transmission pipelines (conduits). To accomplish this, the City proposes to install a cathodic protection system along 64,300 linear feet of two existing 37" and 38" diameter conduits (a.k.a. Conduits 2 & 3). Installation of this system will involve excavating a trench parallel to the conduits to accommodate placement of electrical wires. The wires will be approximately 4.5 feet below ground and approximately 8-10 feet away from the conduits. As part of the system, anodes will be installed to depths of approximately 20 feet, in bored 6" diameter holes spaced at approximate intervals of 300 feet along the conduits. The project will also involve replacement of approximately 1,500 linear feet of each conduit with new pipe in the vicinity where the conduits cross two existing gas pipeline crossings in order to minimize interference with the existing cathodic protection systems on the gas pipelines. Minor valve and pipe work (approximately 50 linear feet) will be performed at five other locations Upon completion of the work described above, the soil profiles will be restored in agricultural and wetland areas and surfaces throughout the project area returned to their pre-construction conditions. There will also be some minor work at several locations to improve access for maintenance by Bureau personnel. The project area is located within the City's existing permanent pipeline easement. The southernmost project limit is situated several hundred feet north of Big Tree Road, just east of Hemlock Outlet in the Town of Livonia. The northernmost project limit is situated just south of the intersection of Rush-Mendon and Stoney Lonesome Roads in the Town of Mendon. The pipe replacement work area is located in the Town of West Bloomfield, approximately 1.5 miles north of NYS Routes 5 & 20 and several thousand feet west of NYS Route 65 (Ontario Street).
