Rensselaer County - The City of Troy, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Raw Water Transmission Main Replacement North Section will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Tomhannock Reservoir is located approximately 7 miles from the John P. Buckley Water Treatment Plant that serves the City of Troy, and portions of nine communities in Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Albany counties. The transmission mains in use today were installed in 1906 and 1914, and have not had any substantial work done to them since they were cleaned and lined in the 1960's. As part of an ongoing project, two new raw water transmission mains are being installed to replace 75% of the existing transmission mains and all segments under high pressure. This project will continue the replacement of the existing mains with installation of one or two new raw water main(s) from the vicinity of Church Street in Schaghticoke to the southern end of the raw water tunnel where the original mains end. The proposed route travels North on the former railroad bed before cutting east, crossing Melrose Valley Falls Road north of Skyline Road. This route then continues into an existing rock tunnel that leads to the Tomhannock
Reservoir. The new main(s) will be connected to the existing rock tunnel. The project is located at various in Schaghticoke, Melrose, and Pittstown, New York.
