The action involves a collaborative project between the US Veteran Affairs, Canandaigua VA Medical Center, the Finger Lakes Addictions Counseling and Referral Agency and Cazenovia Recovery Systems which will consist of two components for a total of 33 residential units: substantial rehab of an existing building and new construction of a residential building on the same 1.9 acre site at 400 Fort Hill Road in the Town of Canandaigua, Ontario County.

Schuyler and Steuben County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Waneta-Lamoka Lakes Herbicide Applications will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. This is a combined notice for actions which involve the proposed aquatic herbicide treatments in Waneta and Lamoka Lakes. There are three sets of permit applications - one for Lamoka Lake and two for Waneta Lake. Littoral zone locations up to 200 feet into the lake will be treated during a 2 day period in Lamoka Lake and a one or two day period in Waneta Lake. These treatments will occur at preselected locations around the lakes where concentrations of an invasive species Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM) and/or severe nuisance concentrations of a native species Southern Naiad have been identified.
In Lamoka Lake, both the aquatic herbicides Renovate ® 3 and Renovate ® OTF (active ingredient triclopyr) are proposed for treatment of the invasive plant EWM. Total treatment of ten (10) areas of the lake are proposed in a total of approximately 91 acres - six (6) areas totaling 42 acres will be treated with Renovate ® OTF (granular) and four (4) areas of the Mud Creek channel totaling 48.5 acres will be treated with Renovate ® 3 (liquid). In Waneta Lake, treatment with Renovate ® OTF (granular) is proposed for treatment of the invasive plant EWM, and Aquathol ® K is proposed for the control of native species Southern Naiad. Total treatment of 33 acres of the lake is proposed for herbicide treatment, with Aquathol ® K in a 23-acre area and Renovate ® OTF in a 10-acre area. The application rates for these herbicides are in accordance with NYS labeling requirements. Lake water levels will be drawn down before the treatment to allow treated water to be held within the lakes. Aquatic plant surveys will be conducted after treatment to establish and document the effectiveness of the treatment.
The project is located are located at the north, east, and south ends of Waneta Lake, and north, south, east and west ends of Lamoka Lake including Mud Creek, in the Town of Tyrone in Schuyler County and the Town of Wayne, Steuben County, New York.
