State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Notice Region 7 - Designation of Critical Environmental Area
The Town of Cazenovia, Madison County, has designated the Village Wellhead Protection CEA (identified on map as Village Aquifer Protection Zone), the Cazenovia Lake and Cazenovia Lake Shoreline Buffer CEA (identified on map as Cazenovia Lake 20 foot CEA) and the Chittenango Creek 20 foot CEA (identified as same on map) as Critical Environmental Areas (CEAs).
The boundaries of these three CEAs are depicted on a map named "Town of Cazenovia Critical Environmental Areas" prepared by the Madison County Planning Department and they are described as part of a Town Board Resolution - "Resolution Approving the Designation of Certain Critical Environmental Areas in the Town of Cazenovia Pursuant to 6 NYCRR 617", dated October 5, 2009, which provides for the CEA designations. The basis for the designation of the three CEAs includes protection of wetlands, flood prone areas and areas critical to water supply and the quality of Cazenovia Lake, the Lake Watershed and streams, as well as to provide recreational amenities and enhance the aesthetic quality of the community. The environmental characteristics of the CEAs consist of three separate areas: the southeastern portion of the center of the Town and Village of Cazenovia that contains and protects the aquifer; the entirety of Cazenovia Lake and a 20 foot shoreline buffer encompassing the entirety of the Lake; and, Chittenango Creek and a 20 foot buffer from the edge of each side of the creek within the Town limits. The aquifer is a water supply that benefits human health as a major source of potable water to the Town and Village residents. The lake and shoreline provide protection to habitats of fish and wildlife, lakeside vegetation and is of residential importance. Chittenango Creek is a resource to fish and wildlife.
