What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and to promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields. Since its inception (2003), the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment. There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.

Additional information on the New York State's Brownfield program is available at NYS DEC's website: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/8450.html.


Negative Declaration

Dutchess County - The Village of Fishkill, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and Pump Station Upgrade (Revision 2021) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of aging equipment within the existing unit processes at the WWTP, and add unit processes to increase the treatment efficiency and capacity. Upgrades at the South Sewer Pump Station will improve operations and allow some of the wastewater flow to be conveyed to the existing gravity main to the Village WWTP (lessening the flow to Beacon).
Revisions to the project consist of the updated information that approximately 320 foot of 6 inch force main will be directionally bored from the South Sewer Pump Station below Fishkill Creek to connect to an existing manhole on the gravity main. The project is located in the Village of Fishkill, New York.
