Cayuga County - Cayuga County, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Owasco Flats Wetland Restoration and Riparian Buffers Initiative will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the reconnection of Owasco Inlet with its floodplain with three water control structures, the water will then flow into the existing wetlands and four created wetlands to filter out nutrients and sediment. Riparian buffers will also be added along drainageways and the Owasco Inlet to further reduce nutrients and sediment inputs. This work will also improve habitat for invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, and birds while reducing phosphorus and sediment that reach Owasco Lake. The project is located in the landlocked land off of NYS Route 38 in the Town of Moravia, New York.

Madison County - The Village of Cazenovia Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed GIGP Cazenovia Stormwater Harvesting Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the award of a grant in the amount of $325.000.00 through the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation to assist the Village of Cazenovia with the cost of designing and constructing facilities to separate stormwater runoff generated by existing buildings in the Village Historic Business Center along Albany Street. Roof drains from a total of twelve buildings will be disconnected from the sanitary sewer system and routed to new underground storm sewer piping segments connected to the existing storm sewer system within the Village. Project components include plumbing modifications in the twelve buildings, installation of two new underground storm sewer piping segments, a new underground rainwater storage tank and a sediment trap. A small pumping system will also be installed to allow stormwater to be withdrawn from the underground tank for beneficial re-use (plant watering) by Village employees. The resulting reduction in flow to the local wastewater treatment plant will help to reduce the number of bypass events which occur at the plant. The project is located along both sides of Albany Street (Route 20) between Center Street and Sullivan Street in the Village of Cazenovia, New York.
