Negative Declaration

Monroe County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Transfer of Jurisdiction of Sandy Creek Wetland will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the transfer of jurisdication of Sandy Creek Wetland from New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP) to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC). The property is located adjacent to the Sandy Creek Boat Launch, which is operated and maintained by NYS DEC. There will be no change in management of the wetland upon its formal transfer to NYS DEC. Though the proposed transfer could be classified as Type II and exempt from SEQRA as continuing agency administration and management, both agencies have agreed to conduct a SEQRA review for the transfer of the property in order to be consistent with similar and concurrent transfers between the two state agencies at this time. The project is located north of Lake Ontario State Parkway near the Route 19 intersection in the Town of Hamlin, New York.

Amended Negative Declaration

Livingston County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Transfer of Jurisdiction of Genesee Valley Greenway will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the transfer of jurisdication of the Genesee Valley Greenway, a 90 mile multi-use recreational trail, from New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) to the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP). Since NYS DEC and NYS OPRHP have agreed that there will be no change in management practices of the Greenway, the proposed transfers could be classified as Type II and exempt from SEQRA as continuing agency administration and management. See, 6 NYCRR 617.5 (c) (20). However, both agencies have agreed to conduct a SEQRA review for the transfer of the trail.

The Greenway passes through the Towns of Belfast, Caneadea, Cuba, Grove, Hume, New Hudson, Hinsdale, Caledonia, York, Leicester, Mount Morris, Groveland, Nunda, Portage, Genesee Falls; in the Counties of Allegany, Cattaraugus, Livingston and Wyoming. For a map of the trail, see http://www.fogvg.org/trail_user/maps/mapside_12- 6-09.pdf.

Positive Declaration

Schuyler County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Finger Lakes Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Underground Storage Facility may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves a proposal by Finger Lakes LPG Storage, LLC to construct and operate a new underground LPG storage facility for the storage and distribution of propane and butane on a portion of a 576 acre site. The storage facility will utilize existing caverns in the Syracuse salt formation created by US Salt and its predecessors' salt production operations. As proposed, a maximum of 2.10 million barrels (88.20 million gallons) of LPG will be stored in these caverns seasonally, displacing some of the brine currently filling them, and will be withdrawn by displacement of propane by brine when demand occurs during the heating season and displacement of butane by brine during the gasoline blending season. During storage operations, the brine displaced by LPG will be stored and contained in a 14 acre lined surface impoundment with a capacity of 2.19 million barrels (91.98 million gallons) on the hillside immediately east of the junction of Routes 14 and 14A. The facility will connect to the existing Teppco LPG interstate pipeline, and will ship LPG by truck via NYS Routes 14/14A and rail to the existing Norfolk & Southern Railroad. As proposed, the project involves construction of a new rail and truck LPG transfer facility, consisting of a 6 rail siding capable of allowing loading/unloading of 24 rail cars within 12 hours, and a truck loading station capable of loading 4 trucks per hour. The rail/truck loading facility is capable of being operated on a 24 hour basis 365 days a year. Construction will also include surface works consisting of truck and rail loading terminals, LPG storage tanks, offices and other distribution facilities, and stormwater control structures. The project is located on NYS Routes 14 and 14A west of Seneca Lake in the Town of Reading, New York.
