Genesee County - The Town of Byron Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Byron - Water District No. 8 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

Depending on the budget, an additional approximately 3,200 linear feet of waterline may be installed along the portion of Ivison Road between Gillette Road and Freeman Road as part of future efforts to provide reliable water supply infrastructure and, as such, this segment has been included in the project area undergoing environmental review. Activities include the installation of watermain, fire hydrants, valves, flushing units, watermain connections, residential hook-ups, road crossings, borings of NYS Route 262 (County Road 13/Townline Road) and railroad tracks, excavation and bedding materials and surface restoration.
