Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Village of Ocean Beach, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Sewage Collection System Replacement will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of the existing sanitary sewer collection system which was originally constructed in 1916 and includes nearly 20,000 linear foot of clay piping laid in a sandy bed. The clay pipe has deteriorated and failed in sections allowing groundwater, stormwater and tidal inputs to the sewage treatment plant. The scope of work includes the re-lining of an existing 12 inch diameter sewer and replacement of all of the gravity sewers running south to north with a low pressure sewer (LPS) line. Each property will be connected to a grinder pump unit as part of the LPS system. The scope of work also includes a new stormwater collection system to alleviate flooding within the Village downtown area along Bay View Walk. The stormwater collection system includes the installation of below grade modular wetland units, a series of interconnected sediment basins and manholes utilizing 12 inch to 18 inch diameter HDPE stormwater piping, and a below grade stormwater pump station with discharge to the Great South Bay. The project is located on Bay View Walk in the Village of Ocean Beach, New York.
