The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has announced that the proposed installation of new water mains on Pre-Emption Street in Waterloo will not significantly harm the environment. Despite this, the DEC is inviting public comments on the project until January 25, ensuring community input before proceeding.
The town’s plan involves installing approximately 7,100 feet of new 8-inch water mains and related structures along Pre-Emption Street. This project aims to connect to existing mains at the intersection with Packwood Road and extend north past the Norfolk Southern railroad crossing. This development is crucial for enhancing local water infrastructure.
Those interested in reviewing the project’s details or submitting comments can do so by contacting Courtney Scoles at the DEC’s Region 8 headquarters. The filed documents and draft permit are available for inspection by appointment, and comments can be sent either by mail or email. This step ensures community engagement in local infrastructure developments.
