On July 28, an Environmental Notice Bulletin (ENB) public notice announced the availability of a Draft Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) document proposed by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) to address each of four specific waterbodies:

Chautauqua Lake, Chautauqua County
Buck Pond, Monroe County
Cranberry Pond, Monroe County
Long Pond, Monroe County

These are waterbodies that are impaired by phosphorus.

Because of a delay in preparing the public review documents, public comment on these documents will now be accepted, through September 3, 2010.
