Negative Declaration

Saratoga County - The Town of Clifton Park Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed National Grid Route 146 New Main and Regulator Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by National Grid to install a new regulator station at the corner of NYS Route 146 and NYS Route 146A traffic rotary, and approximately 14,438 linear foot of 12 inch steel natural gas distribution line which will tie-in at the corner of Nott Road in the Town of Clifton Park, New York. This Project is needed in order to maintain above threshold minimum pressure on the 45# system and to support the growth fore-casted by National Grid's Analytics, Modeling and Forecasting (AMF) group.

The new distribution main will be located on the southern side of NYS Route 146. Portions of the distribution main will be located within New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT) right-of-way (ROW) and portions will be installed on private land. National Grid has coordinated permanent and temporary easements for the Project limits of disturbance (LOD). The project is located along NYS Route 146 right-of-way (ROW) in the Town of Clifton Park, New York.
