Negative Declaration

Steuben County - The Bath Municipal Utilities Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Bath electric distribution system voltage conversion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a Village-wide electric distribution system voltage conversion including expansion of systems to meet anticipated long-range electric distribution demand. The project would include consolidation of existing sub-station facilities. The project is located in the entire Village of Bath.
