Cayuga County - The Town of Owasco, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Owasco - Sewer District No. 3 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the installation of a new low-pressure sewage collection system to serve properties along Owasco Lake. The system will consist of approximately 18,800 feet of 1.5 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch, and 4 inch SDR-21 PVC sewage force main. The proposed facilities will also include approximately 179 simplex grinder pumps, one (1) duplex grinder pump, twenty-six (26) cleanout manholes, and three (3) air/vacuum release valve manholes. The Sewer District No. 3 collection system will discharge to existing 8 inch gravity sewer located on Burtis Point Road. Wastewater flows from the proposed Sewer District No. 3 will be conveyed to the City of Auburn via existing Sewer District No. 2 and Sewer District No. 1 facilities. Capacity improvements to the Burtis Point Pump Station, the Oakridge Pump Station, and/or the Town's existing gravity sewers may be implemented as part of this project, if necessary.

Chenango County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Chenango RA #7, Stands A-19.10 and A-41 Herbicide Application will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action will involve a herbicide application to reduce the abundance of interfering woody vegetation and herbaceous plants to a level that would allow the natural regeneration of desired tree species. The action is to take place on 56 acres of mixed pine and hardwood forest. The herbicide application seeks to control interfering vegetation consisting of beech, striped maple, thornapple, New York fern, hay-scented fern, honeysuckle, multi-flora rose and barberry. The dominance of this vegetation in the forest understory prevents adequate regeneration of desirable tree species from becoming established. Removal of the interfering vegetation will facilitate the natural regeneration of red maple, white ash, hard maple, aspen, black cherry, oak, and other northern hardwood species and white pine and hemlock, creating a healthy diverse natural forest. Repeat applications may be necessary to achieve acceptable success rates. The project is located on Chenango Reforestation Area # 7, Wiley Brook State Forest, Stands A-19.10 and A-41. Stand A-19.10 is located adjacent to the east side of Glovers Corners Road, adjacent to the south side of Bruffel Hill Road, and north of Hoffman Road, within the Town of Guilford, New York. Stand A-41 is located south of Shapley Road, approximately 2 miles east of the Puckerville Road intersection, in the Town of Oxford, New York.
