New York State Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan

Draft Amendment #6 to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan issued September 27, 2005 was published in the August 23, 2006 issue of the Environmental Notice Bulletin. The comment period for the Draft Amendment #6 closed on September 7, 2006. 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 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 cost increase are included in the table below:

Borrower County Project Description DWSRF # Current IUP Cost Proposed IUP Cost Explanation
(T)VanEtten Chemung New Village Water System; source, treatment, storage tank, and distribution mains 16979 $0 $2,008,200 The cost increase is the result of an update of the original project estimate by the engineer due to inflation and an increase in material costs, including a significant increase in steel prices.

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."

The revised Project Readiness List may be obtained by calling DOH's toll free information line at 1-800-458-1158, extension 27676 (within New York State only) or (518) 402-7676.


Public Notice

Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF)
DWSRF Final Regulation Revisions

The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) has amended the New York State Drinking Water Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Regulations, currently codified under 21 NYCRR Part 2604 (EFC DWSRF Regulations). The DWSRF program was created and is jointly administered by the Department of Health and EFC pursuant to Chapter 413 of the Laws of 1996.

The proposed revisions conform the DWSRF regulations to current practices and to certain changes in the Clean Water State Revolving Fund regulations which were recently amended. Definitions of "corpus allocation", "interest rate subsidy" and "loans" are revised or clarified. The word "grant" is added to the definition of "hardship assistance". The maximum project cost for projects eligible for grant and reduced interest rate loans is raised from $10 million to $14 million.

The final EFC DWSRF revised regulations were filed with the Department of State. The notice of adoption will be published in the State Register on September 20, 2006.

A notice of availability of the final EFC DWSRF regulation revisions will be mailed to representatives of applicants with projects listed in the DWSRF Intended Use Plan (IUP) and other interested parties. The EFC DWSRF regulation revisions are available on the EFC web page at www.nysefc.org (Click on "Programs", then "Drinking Water State Revolving Fund", then "Regulations").
