Negative Declaration

Chautauqua County - The Chautauqua Lake Central School District, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Renewable Energy and Reconstruction Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the School District to undertake a project, which consists of the installation of heat recovery units and energy conservation related improvements to the architectural, mechanical and electrical systems. Improvements will also include the installation of improved technologies to existing air handling units. The improvements are focused on the reducing of energy consumption and electrical demand. In addition, the action will include the purchase of a single wind turbine with a tilt-up tower, which will be installed as a demonstration wind project. The demonstration wind project will consist of a small residential size and grade wind turbine and a monitoring circuit board that will extend to a designated classroom. The tilt-up tower will include a foundation and security devices to maintain the wind turbine and generator in a stored or deployed position. The Wind Turbine will be tilted down and stored during extended school breaks including the summer and winter break. The project will also consist of the partial reconstruction and construction of improvements to all district school buildings including exterior masonry, exterior walls, roofing, improvements to technology and security systems, and site work reconstruction. The project is located in the Chautauqua Lake Central School District, Chautauqua, New York.

Niagara County - The Town of Wheatfield Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Metaullics Systems - Facility Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a 93,000 square foot expansion to the existing Metaullics Systems Graphite Plant. Three separate buildings will be constructed: Building 6 (approximately 29,400 square feet) and Building 7 (approximately 18,000 square feet) will house new Graphite furnaces to be used in the production of graphite for lithium batteries. Building 8 (approximately 45,600 square feet) will be used as a raw material receiving and handling facility. Other site improvements include additional employee parking for 65 new employees, a loading dock facility for Building 8, an access road of approximately 1,540 linear feet (26 feet in width) for emergency fire access, underground water and sewer utility extensions, a storm drainage management system, three cooling towers, site lighting and miscellaneous landscaping. In addition to the air emissions permit, the project will require a NYS SPDES permit, preparation of a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and SPDES inspections during construction, because the disturbance area for this project is 9.85 acres. The intent of the site design is to comply with the existing NYS SPDES Regulations currently in effect. The project is located at 2050 Cory Drive in the Town of Wheatfield, New York.
