Cattaraugus County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Red House Dam Rehabilitation in the Allegany State Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the rehabilitation of the existing historic dam on Red House Lake in Allegany State Park. The total area of the project location is approximately 7.73 acres. Under modern dam safety regulations set by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), the inward and outward slopes of the dam are too steep and must be built up to make each slope more gentle. In order to accomplish this, approximately 849 trees were removed from the dam last winter. A separate SEQR review was conducted for this tree removal. The stumps and roots must now be removed down to six inches below grade. The spillway and lower retention pool will be rehabilitated and the existing bridge will be replaced. To do this work, the lake level must be lowered so the dam can be accessible. Drawdown will result in 52 acres of temporarily exposed lake bottom. Lake level lowering will occur in 2 phases. The first phase will lower the lake by 8 feet for one month, the second phase will raise the lake back up by 2 feet to complete the dam work and will take an additional 2 months. The roadway going over the dam will be widened during this project and a pedestrian/bicycle lane will be constructed for patron use. Fisherman will be able to utilize approximately three new bump outs over the lake as well. It is anticipated that the work will begin in July 2017 and be completed by December 2017. The project is located in the Allegany State Park in the Red House Area, Town of Red House, New York.
