Public Notice

Notice is hereby given pursuant to Article 24 (Freshwater Wetlands Act) of the New York State Environmental Conservation Law and the Freshwater Wetlands Mapping and Classification Regulations (6 NYCRR Part 664) that New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) proposes to amend Niagara County Freshwater Wetland Map 10 of 18 originally filed in 1984. The wetland amendment would consist of adding Wetland LP-38 as a Class 3 wetland to the maps. Maps showing the proposed revisions are available at the clerks' offices in the Town of Lockport and Niagara County, as well as at the NYS DEC - Region 9 Office, Buffalo, NY. Written comments on the accuracy of the proposed change to the map may be submitted to the person listed below. All comments received through September 15, 2016 will be considered. Pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 664, once the announcement of a proposed amendment has been made, no activity subject to regulation under the Freshwater Wetlands Act may be initiated without a permit from NYS DEC within the area that is the subject of the proposal (including the regulated 100-foot adjacent area) until the NYS DEC Commissioner has either amended the map or denied the amendment.

Negative Declaration

Chautauqua County - Chautauqua County, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Sewer Extension for West Side Chautauqua Lake will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by Chautauqua County to modify the existing Goose Creek pumping station and extend public sewers from the pumping station to approximately 770 occupied parcels (residential and commercial) along the west side of Chautauqua Lake that are currently served by septic systems. Chautauqua Lake has a total maximum daily load (TMDL) and is considered impaired due to excessive phosphorus loadings. Many of these septic systems do not meet current standards and are nearing the end of their useful life. These septic systems are a significant source of the phosphorus loadings within Chautauqua Lake and are the primary driver behind providing public sewers around the west lakeshore area. The project will be funded, in part, by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund. The project is located in the Towns of Busti, Chautauqua and North Harmony, New York.
