Jefferson County - The Village of Ellisburg, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed New Water System will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a water, supply, distribution and storage system for the Village of Ellisburg and potentially serving parcels along the transmission main route between the Village of Ellisburg and the intersection of County Route 85 and NYS Route 289. The project will be composed of approximately 27,800 lineal feet of 10-inch diameter ductile iron water mains, 15,000 lineal feet of 3/4-inch copper water services, corporation stop assemblies, curb stop assemblies, water meters, fire hydrants, construction of a 125,000 gallon water storage tank, and a well field.
The proposed source of water supply for the Village will be the Town of Ellisburg’s Water District No. 2 and a well field to be constructed as part of this project. A distribution system between these service areas will supply the Village with potable water.
Construction of the proposed system will replace a publicly regulated water supply, as well as individual water supplies, which have tested positive for Total Coliform and E. coli and/or experience low yield. The project is located in the Village of Ellisburg, Town of Ellisburg, County of Jefferson.
