Consolidated SPDES Renewals
Suffolk County - The Shoreham-Wading River Central School District Board of Education, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed new 2-story classroom wing will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a new 2-story classroom wing with 18 classrooms, 2 science rooms, support facilities and a 6,110 square foot basement constructed along the rear or western side of the existing school. A 600-seat auditorium with lobby, cafeteria/kitchen and support space would be constructed along the southeast side of the existing main structure. A new single story classroom addition consisting of 4 classrooms, 2 special education rooms and a resource room will be added to two of the existing classroom wings, located at the opposite side of the building from the proposed auditorium and cafeteria. The existing lobby will be slightly enlarged. Portions of the existing Middle School classroom wings and library will be renovated to meet programmatic, code and space requirements for the newly expanded Middle School. The expansion program at the Middle School is needed to meet the District's projected student population, existing New York State Education Department mandatory educational program requirements and State mandated classroom space requirements for middle school educational programs and activities. The current student body is 682, and the proposed action would accommodate up to 910 students in classrooms meeting State Education Department classroom space requirements.
The Middle School is located in the compatible growth area of the Central Pine Barrens. Since 1972 when the Middle School was constructed, approximately 69.2% of the 31.9 acre site was cleared, and 26.0% consisted of fertilizer dependent vegetation. The contemplated action would result in total clearing of 73.6%, and 24.9% fertilizer dependent vegetation. Alternative 1, which eliminates the proposed cafeteria and auditorium, reduces total clearing to 71.5% of the Middle School site, but, like the contemplated action, would provide for up to 960 students within existing State Education Guidelines. 25.8% of the property would contain fertilizer dependent vegetation under Alternative 1. Alternative 2 would result in combined total clearing of the Middle School site of 71.1%, but the resulting Middle School would only be able to accommodate 710 students within existing State Education Guidelines. 26.0% of the site would contain fertilizer dependent vegetation under Alternative 2. The No Action Alternative would leave total clearing at the current 69.2%, and fertilizer dependent vegetation at 26.0%, but undersized classrooms would have to accommodate the projected increase in the student body, and overcrowding will be inevitable. The project is located at 100 Randall Road, Shoreham, Town of Brookhaven, County of Suffolk, NY 11786.
