Wyoming County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Letchworth State Park - South End Municipal Water Supply will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the installation of a public water supply system from the Village of Castile to Letchworth State Park. Two separate transmission lines will be constructed. The waterlines will be privately owned by NYS OPRHP and will only serve park facilities. The project will provide a long term source of potable water for park patrons and staff as well as provide the Park with the required quantity and improved water quality.
Terrain, environmental areas and adjacent private property concerns were all taken into consideration in the design of this project. Seven alternative routes were evaluated before selecting the route which minimizes impacts to environmentally sensitive areas. The preferred route follows the public highway right of way corridors to the Park's boundary and at that point primarily follows existing Park roads and trail infrastructure. A few sections will require installation in areas that have not been previously disturbed. In consultation with the Park naturalist sensitive areas were avoided. In addition horizontal drilling will be use to avoid disturbing areas of concern and reducing the amount of restoration required. The project is located in the Village of Castile and Letchworth State Park which is located in the Village of Castile, Town of Castile and the Town of Genesee Falls, New York.
