Negative Declaration

Monroe County - The Town of Greece Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Braddock Bay Coastal Wetland Restoration Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a project by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), in conjunction with the Town of Greece, to restore wetland and habitat diversity in Braddock Bay, to improve the bay's suitability for fish and wildlife, and to protect Braddock Bay wetlands from erosion, but avoiding potential negative impacts on: navigability and operation of marinas; nutrient dynamics of Braddock Bay (which would worsen eutrophication); and the littoral drift system along the south shore of Lake Ontario. More specifically, the project will involve the re-creation of a breakwater and barrier beach across part of the mouth of Braddock Bay, digging channels and potholes to re-create the wetland diversity that formerly existed, creating a protective barrier for the protection and growth of an emergent marsh in the interior of the bay, and chemically and mechanically treating part of an emergent marsh to reduce invasive species cover. The project location and methods are intended to avoid inducing sedimentation in Braddock Bay (which could adversely affect ecosystem processes, navigation, or existing infrastructure). Funding for the Project comes from the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Program, and is administered by the USACE.

The project is located along the south shoreline of Lake Ontario in Braddock Bay, Town of Greece, New York.

Schuyler County - The Town of Dix Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law to Enact the Wind Energy Conversions Systems Law of the Town of Dix will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a proposed Local Law to amend the Zoning Law of the Town of Dix (Local Law No. 2 of the year 2006) to add Article XVI which will apply to all wind energy conversion systems proposed, operated, modified, or constructed after the effective date of the law, through the Town of Dix Planning Board Site Plan and Special Use Permit processes. The project is located throughout the Town of Dix, New York.

Seneca County - The Town of Waterloo Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Serven, Packwood, and Townline Roads Water Improvements Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the installation of 14,500 lineal feet of 12 inch SDR-18 watermain along Serven, Packwood, and Townline Roads (Pre-Emption Road) in the Town of Waterloo, New York. The project also includes the construction of 1,550 lineal feet of 8 inch PVC SDR-18 watermain along Townline Road (Pre-Emption Road) north of NYS Route 96 to the municipal line. Appropriate hydrants and valves will also be provided as dictated by New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH). It should be noted that the project will mostly be constructed within right-of-way (R.O.W). Ultimately the completion of the system will create a looped system with adjacent Towns increasing water pressure, flow and overall water quality for the area.
