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, 2005 was published in the December 7, 2005 issue of the Environmental Notice Bulletin. The comment period for the Draft Amendment #1 closed on December 22, 2005. 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, 2005 to add a project and to adjust the estimated project cost for four 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

New Distribution System, New Ground Water Source. 17489 Not in IUP $150,000 Place the project on the readiness list with a score of 2190. This project was received prior to the submittal deadline for the draft IUP and left out of the final IUP due to a data input error.
(T) Moreau Saratoga Extension to serve properties in WD#6, and consolidate several existing public water supply systems, New Storage, Extend Distribution System, New System Consolidation. 15980 $5,400,000 $6,007,440 Actual bids received were higher then original estimates.

New Surface Water Treatment Rule Compliance Facility, New Complete System, New Interconnection, New System consolidation. 17175 $227,000 $652,000 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.
(C)&(T) Poughkeepsie & (V) Wappinger Falls Dutchess Phase 4 of DWSRF 15654, valve replacement program, unidirectional flushing to permit the chloramine system to go on-line. Upgrade Distribution System. 17471 $1,894,988 $2,372,199 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.

The Department has determined that the project addition 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.”
