Notice of Availability of Environmental Assessment Report Regarding

Peckham Reservoir Dam Flood Damage Project

Village of Sidney, Delaware County, New York


Notification is hereby given to the public of the intent of the Department of Homeland Security-Federal Emergency Management Agency (DHS-FEMA) to provide Federal financial assistance to New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (NYSDHSES), as Recipient, and the Village of Sidney, as Subrecipient, for the demolition and decommissioning of the Peckham Reservoir Dam, installation of new water mains under the Susquehanna and Unadilla Rivers via directional drilling, and development of a well to replace Peckham Reservoir as a water supply. Peckham Reservoir Dam was damaged as a result of flooding during severe storms and flooding between June 6 and July 10, 2006. On July 1, 2006, President Bush declared FEMA-1650-DR-NY a major disaster. Federal public assistance was made available to affected communities and non-profit organizations in accordance with the Robert T. Stafford Disaster and Emergency Assistance Act of 1974 (Stafford Act), 42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq., as amended.

The proposed action involves dismantling of the existing earthen embankment dam on Peckham Brook, demolition of the Peckham Dam filter house, and grading to re-establish the stream bed and banks in the location of the Peckham Brook Reservoir. Water mains under the Unadilla and Susquehanna Rivers would be constructed of welded high density polyethylene pipe. New water mains will include isolation valves on either side of each river crossing and a leak monitoring vault on the supply side of each crossing.  A new secondary drinking water groundwater source will be developed on a parcel in the Town of Unadilla to replace the Peckham Reservoir emergency source in order to meet current and future water usage demands. The new ground water source will connect to the existing Guilford Service Area of the Village of Sidney’s water system.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), an Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to assess the potential impacts of the proposed action on the human environment. DHS-FEMA’s requirement of addressing floodplain management and wetlands protection in accordance with 44 CFR Part 9 is incorporated within the EA. The EA is available for public comment, and comments can be sent via email to The EA will be available for download from the FEMA website at and can be viewed in hard copy at the Village of Sidney Village Hall, Civic Center, 21 Liberty Street, Sidney, NY 13838.

The comment period will end 30 days after the date of this legal notice publication in Tri-Town News newspaper. Written comments on the EA can be mailed or e-mailed to the contact below. If no substantive comments are received, the EA will become final and a Finding of No Significant Impact will be signed.  Substantive comments will be addressed as appropriate in the final documents. Contact DHS-FEMA Region II, Office of Environmental Planning & Historic Preservation, Leo O’Brien Building 11A Clinton Avenue, Suite 742, Albany New York 12207 or via email at
