Capital Region Water is seeking a Categorical Exclusion (CE) from environmental review through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for its Bellevue Park Pond Retrofit Project. We are accepting written comments from the public for 30 days following the publication of this Public Notice. Written comments can be mailed to Capital Region Water, 3003 North Front Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110. The Bellevue Park Pond Project is located close to the intersection of Bellevue Road and Pentwater Road in Harrisburg, PA 17104. The project includes maintenance activities for two ponds approximately 0.2 acres in size to remove accumulated sediment by dewatering and mechanical dredging, regrading and planting of the pond banks to provide a stable slope; replacement of the lower pond spillway; installation of drainage structures, catch basins, storm sewer pipes, rock energy dissipators, a continuous monitoring and adaptive control system with pipe drainage valves, and E&S controls; topsoil placement and seeding for lawns and site restoration; plantings; and other work associated with improvements around the ponds.
The project is currently being reviewed by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for consideration for a Categorical Exclusion from environmental review requirement. This project qualifies for a CE because due diligence agency reviews relating to endangered species, archaeological/historical sites, and fish & wildlife resources did not indicate any adverse impact from this project. This project’s cost and subsequent operational cost savings were integrated into 2021 user fees as part of the rate setting process. The overall estimated cost for the project including construction and engineering services is $1,800,000. Capital Region Water plans to submit an application to the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) to finance the project.
