Negative Declaration

Genesee County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Zaepfel Wetland Enhancement will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The proposed wetland enhancement project is located on 42 acres of privately owned land at the corner of Cookson Road and Core Dorman Road in the Town of Alexander, New York. Due to the low quality of agricultural production at this location, proximity to existing wetlands and the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge, the property owner has received a grant from Ducks Unlimited to restore emergent wetland that once occupied the site prior to its conversion to use for agricultural production. An Article 15 Stream Disturbance permit is required to construct a new channel for hydrologic connectivity from Tonawanda Creek to the project.
