Negative Declaration

Jefferson County - The Town of LeRay Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Consolidated Water District Extension will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the investigation, evaluation, and construction of a new water line that will serve the Town of LeRay's Consolidated District Extension and well development and improvements at Town owned water supply and distribution facilities. Commercial and residential users in this proposed district currently use on-site water sources, which are generally problematic and have yielded positive test results for contamination. The water line for this project will reduce health and sanitary concerns, need for installation of on-site water filtration systems, and may promote sustainability and development for commercial properties. Construction will generally include the installation of waterline such as HDPE pipe, property connections, corporation and curb stops, valves, and meters. The project is located along NYS Route 11 and Steinhelmer Road in the Town of LeRay, New York.

Oneida County - The Village of Sylvan Beach, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Waterfront Revitalization Program will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the intention of the Village of Sylvan Beach to adopt a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) for the Village of Sylvan Beach. The LWRP is a locally prepared waterfront plan that outlines local land policies and land and water uses to support existing and future economic activity, improve public access to the waterfront, increase recreational use of Sylvan Beach's waterfront, protect and restore natural resources, and support resiliency and sustainability for the waterfront. This LWRP includes proposed projects, land uses, and water uses for all of Sylvan Beach's working waterbodies including Oneida Lake, the Erie Canal, and Fish Creek. The project is located in the Village of Sylvan Beach, New York.

St. Lawrence County - The Village of Gouverneur, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Inflow and Infiltration Study will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Village of Gouverneur's sanitary sewer system consists of many undersized, vitrified clay pipes. Due to the pipe's age, locations, and repairs over the years, the system is full of cracks and breaks. These issues cause excess infiltration and inflow of groundwater into the sanitary system, resulting in dilution and the unnecessary treatment of groundwater at the Wastewater Treatment facility (WWTF). It is recommended that the Village proceed with improvements to the system such as replacing existing manhole structures, catch basins, and certain sanitary main piping in crucial areas. The project is located within the Village of Gouverneur, New York.

St. Lawrence County - The Village of Gouverneur, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Dorwin Street Sewer Connector Phase II will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The original Dorwin Street Sewer Connector project was able to relocate the new sewer connector outside of the federal wetlands area a small portion of existing main was left in service. Investigations during the design of the original Dorwin Street project showed that the area of need was larger than the original project scope. The existing 12 inch clay tile main that runs from the railroad crossing on Depot Street through backyards to Beckwith Street could not be replaced and or relocated, therefore the existing connector was left in service from Beckwith Street to Grove Street. The proposed project will construct new 8 inch PVC sewer mains along upper Grove Street, South Gordon Street, Northern Beckwith Street, Sterling Street, and a portion of Depot Street which will allow for the remaining old sewer connector to be abandoned. Additionally, new storm sewer systems will be constructed within the work areas to separate storm water from the sanitary sewer. The Village has been working hard to eliminate combined sewers throughout the Village the last 5 years to comply with their consent order. The project is located within the Village of Gouverneur, New York.
