ENB - Region 7 Notices
Tioga County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Brick Pond Wetland Restoration/Enhancement at the Waterman Conservation Education Center will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the restoration and enhancement of the Brick Pond Wetland at the Waterman Conservation Education Center. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is assisting, through their Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, with design and funding to restore and enhance the diversity of the wetland and to provide for long-term management of the wetland via new berms and water control structures. The design calls for normal water levels to be less than the prior levels established by the beaver dam and adds the ability to temporarily drain the wetland when necessary for management functions and emergencies. The project is located between Front Street and the railroad bed in the Village of Owego, New York.
