Seneca County - The NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Boat Launch Rehabilitation - Seneca Lake State Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the rehabilitation of the boat launch and a portion of the small boat marina. The existing launch pads, boarding docks, access roads and parking will be removed and replaced with updated materials and design to make Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant. A new fishing pier will replace 4 substandard small-boat docks located west of the boat launch. Parking, access roads and pathways will be re-aligned to improve vehicle and pedestrian flow around the launch area and permeable asphalt will be used to improve stormwater runoff conditions in the project area. A permeable asphalt and paver surfaced parking area will be constructed to replace the random, unorganized parking that currently exists on the open lawn adjacent to the launch area. The project is located in the Seneca Lake State Park at 100 Waterloo-Geneva Road in Geneva, Town of Waterloo, New York.

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 the proposed aquatic herbicide treatments in Waneta Lake, Lamoka Lake, and Mill Pond. There are two sets of permit applications - one for Lamoka Lake and one for Waneta Lake. Littoral zone locations 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) have been identified. In Lamoka Lake/Mill Pond, both the aquatic herbicides Renovate® 3 and Renovate ® OTF (active ingredient triclopyr) are proposed for treatment of the invasive plant EWM. Total treatment of two (2) areas of the lake are proposed in approximately 12.4 acres with Renovate ® OTF (granular), and four (4) areas of Mill Pond are proposed in 32 acres with Renovate ® 3 (liquid). In Waneta Lake, the aquatic herbicide Renovate® OTF (granular) is proposed for treatment of the invasive plant EWM. Total treatment of seven (7) areas of the lake are proposed in approximately 34.6 acres with Renovate® OTF. The application rates for these herbicides are in accordance with NYS labeling requirements. No drawdown of the lake is being proposed for 2013. Stop logs will be placed in Bradford Dam spillway so that lake water will be contained up to elevation 1099.0 for approximately one month after 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 projects are located at the north, east, and south ends of Waneta Lake, in the Town of Wayne in Steuben County, and the Town of Tyrone in Schuyler County; and at the north and south ends of Lamoka Lake including Mill Pond, in the Towns of Tyrone and Orange in Schuyler County; and Town of Bradford in Steuben County, New York.

Wayne County - The Village of Clyde, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed NYS Route 31 Water Transmission Main Replacement will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of 5,000 linear feet of watermain which functions as the sole water transmission line into the Village distribution system and the primary feed to the Village storage tanks. The existing un-lined cast iron pipe, installed in 1896, will be replaced with new 12-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyethylene (PE) watermain. The replacement will occur along NYS Route 31 from the western Village boundary to the intersection with NYS Route 414 (Glasgow Street). Activities also include installation of 13 fire hydrants (some of which will replace existing hydrants), valves, connections with existing watermains and residential services, excavation and bedding materials, and surface restoration. The replacement of the watermain will significantly improve water quality issues and increase the reliability of service and fire protection for the entire Village of Clyde. The project is located along portions of NYS Route 31 in the Village of Clyde, New York.
