Scoping Notices

"Scoping" is for projects in the earliest stages of planning.  At the scoping stage, detailed information on a project's design, alternatives, and environmental impacts does not yet exist.  Sponsoring agencies are asking for comments from other agencies and from the public as to the scope of alternatives and environmental impacts that should be considered for further study.  Send your comments to the contact person listed for the project by the date indicated.
 

 The Following Scoping Notice has been submitted for review and comment.

1. Notice of Scoping for Chestnut Ridge Storage Tank

Municipality where proposed project might be located: Bethel

Address of Possible Project Location: Between 27 Long Meadow Lane and 22 Briar Cliff Manor

Project DescriptionThe Town of Bethel proposes to construct a new 500,000 gallon concrete water storage tank. The proposed tank will be 65-feet in diameter with an approximate height of 21-feet above grade. An electrical and instrumentation enclosure will also be located near the tank. This project supports Bethel's long term plan to replace its existing surface water supplies and treatment plants with ground water supplies by increasing the Town's overall storage capacity as indicated in Town's Water Supply Plan.  The Chestnut Ridge Storage Tank will provide the needed additional emergency and fire protection storage, redundancy and backup to the Eureka Lake Water Storage Tank.

Post-Scoping Notices: Environmental Impact Evaluation Not Required
 
This category is required by the October 2010 revision of the Generic Environmental Classification Document  for State Agencies. A notice is published here if the sponsoring agency, after publication of a scoping notice and consideration of comments received, has determined that an Environmental Impact Evaluation (EIE) does not need to be prepared for the proposed project.

No Post-Scoping Notice has been submitted for publication in this edition.

 

 

After Scoping, an agency that wishes to undertake an action that could significantly affect the environment must produce, for public review and comment, a detailed written evaluation of the expected environmental impacts. This is called an Environmental Impact Evaluation (EIE). 


 The following EIE Notice has been submitted for publication in this edition.

1. Final Environmental Assessment (EA) for Approval of the Connecticut Training Center Real Property Master Plan of the Connecticut Army National Guard

Municipalities where proposed project might be located:  East Lyme, Lyme, Old Lyme, and East Haven

Address of Possible Project Location: Stones Ranch Military Reservation, 10 Stone Ranch Road, East Lyme, CT 06333; Camp Niantic, 38 Smith Street, Niantic, CT 06357; East Haven Rifle Range, 591 N. High Street, East Haven, CT 06512

Project DescriptionThe Connecticut Military Department/Connecticut Army National Guard (CTARNG) proposes to approve a new Real Property Master Plan (RPMP) for the Connecticut Training Center (CTC) consistent with the requirements of the US Department of Defense (DoD) Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 2-100-01, Installation Master Planning, which provides guidance for developing RPMPs for DoD installations. The Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluates the potential environmental, cultural, and socioeconomic effects of approving the UFC 2-100-01-compliant RPMP. The CTC comprises three noncontiguous installations: Stones Ranch Military Reservation, Camp Niantic, and East Haven Rifle Range. The RPMP is needed to comply with DoD Master Planning policy as well as to guide the CTARNG through the long-term development of the CTC in a clear, sustainable manner that supports the installations’ military missions. The Proposed Action would provide an updated master plan to guide the CTARNG’s mission at the CTC for the next 20 years using the latest techniques in planning.
