Milton Avenue Substation Expansion

National Grid
Town of Camillus, NY

The substation expansion required the enlargement of the station yard by around 10,000 square feet. The Project includes improving the reliability of the electrical supply in the Syracuse Area by installing an additional transformer, metal clad switchgear, and related equipment at an existing substation. This involved relocating the perimeter fence, reconfiguring the driveway, and erecting support structures for the new electrical equipment. The Project Site was constrained due to its small size, adjacency to a golf course with a steep slope, and proximity to public roads.

EDR’s role on the Project was to ensure regulatory requirements set by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation were met. The Project Team to developed a SWPPP (Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan) to address stormwater quality and quantity concerns resulting from the construction activities. An Erosion and Sediment Control Plan was developed to ensure there were no adverse environmental effects arising from runoff interfacing with bare soil on the Project Site which could threaten Nine-Mile Creek. A construction sequence, spill prevention protocols, construction site inspection guidance, chemical and oil management instructions, and directions for stabilizing the site after construction were all included in the SWPPP report for the Project Site’s contractors to follow during construction.
