Negative Declaration

Oneida County - The City of Utica Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Combined Sewer Outfall (CSO) Control Project A9.1 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. he City of Utica is undertaking a project which will utilize a new 48 inch storm sewer constructed in 2020. The pipe crosses over the Railroad Interceptor, north of Potter Street, and outlets to Nail Creek at an undesirable location (upstream of the CSX railroad bridge, which is a known hydraulic bottleneck). The existing junction chamber that is just north of the Railroad Interceptor will be rebuilt. New twin 36 inch pipes will be constructed from this chamber, crossing under the railroad, and discharging to a ponded area that has hydraulic connection to the Mohawk River. The project is located approximately 550 foot north of 599 Potter Avenue in the City of Utica, New York.
