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, 2005 to adjust the estimated project cost for one DWSRF project listed on the Project Readiness List. A project description and explanation of the reason for the change and cost increase are included in the table below:

Borrower County Project Description DWSRF # Current IUP Cost Proposed IUP Cost Explanation
(T) Beekmantown Clinton Extend system to serve area with private contaminated wells, consolidate public water supply, eliminate public water supply with past total coliform detection 17148 $603,630 $779,000 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.

The Department has determined that the project cost increase is necessary, reasonable and consistent with the original project concept. In addition, the scope of the project has not changed, nor have we altered the project priority rankings in any way. The project cost increase will not adversely affect any other project on the IUP Project Readiness List above the funding line. Except for the above-noted change, 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 cost increase will be accepted by fax or mail until close of business on March 16, 2006 and should be filed with:
