Orleans County - The Town of Albion, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Albion Water District No. 9 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the extension of public water service to Albion Water District No. 9 including portions of Allen's Bridge Road, Keitel Road and Powerline Road. The project will serve 23 properties with a total of 16 single family homes in the Town of Albion. Approximately 16,100 linear feet of watermain will be installed. In addition to the watermain, the project includes hydrants, valves, road crossings, excavation and bedding materials, watermain connections, residential hook-ups, and surface restoration. Residents in this area are dependent upon individual groundwater supplies that historically have produced very low yields of poor quality water. The project is located along portions of Allen's Bridge Road, Keitel Road and Powerline Road, Town of Albion, New York.

Seneca County - The Seneca County Industrial Development Agency, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Timber Harvesting - Former Seneca Army Depot will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the light timber thinning, except for Ash which will have heavy thinning, focusing on promoting future growth and regeneration within the individual stands. This will help to increase habitat and forage for the deer population on the property. The Emerald Ash Borer is beginning to invade New York State from its initial infestation in the Chicago area. Once the Ash Borer reaches Central New York State, the entire area could be quarantined, which means that Ash timber will not be allowed to leave the immediate area. Therefore, there is an increasing urgency to remove as much Ash timber as possible. The project is located on the former Seneca Army Depot bounded by West Patrol Road to the north, West Patrol Road to the west, South Patrol Road to the south and Fayette/Main Road to the East in the Towns of Romulus and Varick, New York.
