Application ID: 3-1330-00164/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 15 Water Supply
Project is Located: Fishkill, Dutchess County
Project Description:
          The Town of Fishkill has applied for a Water Supply permit to develop Well #T-1 in the Snook Road Wellfield for use in the Snook Road Water Improvement Area, for use in the Merritt Park Water District, and also to serve water to the Shenandoah Road Area in the Town of East Fishkill.  Well #T-1 is a shallow sand and gravel aquifer well which is approximately 80 feet deep.  It is cased with steel down through the first 60 feet to the water bearing strata.  The Town submitted a Hydrogeologic Investigation Report indicating that the well was tested at a pumping rate of approximately 1,100 gallons per minute (gpm).  The report also states that five observation wells around Well #T-1 showed little or no fluctuation in the water elevation of the aquifer during the pumptest.  
        Water from the well would be used to provide approximately 300,000 gallons per day to the Snook Road Water Improvement Area, which includes portions of the Merritt Park Water District, and to provide approximately 80,000 gallons per day to the Shenandoah Road Area in the nearby Town of East Fishkill.  Additional amounts of water, up to approximately 400,000 gallons per day, would be used to supplement or replace existing sources of water, as needed, in three other existing Town of Fishkill Water Districts, specifically the Brinkerhoff, Blodgett and Glenham Water Districts.
        The Snook Road Wellfield is located near the intersection of NYS Route 9 and Snook Road, and is also bordered by Interstate 84, in the Town of Fishkill, Dutchess County New York.
