Ontario County - The Village of Naples, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Municipal Wastewater System for Main Street Corridor will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development of a municipal wastewater system to serve the Main Street corridor area within the Village. The proposed project will eliminate the identified health and safety issues while providing the necessary infrastructure to successfully thrive as a community. The deficiencies caused by the lack of a municipal wastewater system include: inadequate and failed septic systems, ability to replace septic systems, impacts on the environment from failed septic systems, impacts on public water supply, and impacts on economy. The project includes establishment of a hybrid collection system and construction of a new fixed film based wastewater treatment system.

Ontario County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Invasive Species Management at Ganondagan State Historic Site will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the management of invasive species of plants at Ganondagan State Historic Site. The 569 acre Ganondagan State Historic Site is currently invaded by a multitude of non-native plant species, many of which pose a threat to native species, threatened plant species, and sensitive ecological communities. Removal of invasive species at Ganondagan is essential in preventing spread throughout the watershed due to the high number of vectors on site in the form of roads, trails and streams. This will include control of species such as; pale swallowwort, Japanese knotweed, garlic mustard, crown vetch, invasive honeysuckles, Japanese barberry, multiflora rose, and Phragmites by manual removal, cultural controls, and herbicide treatments. Management will focus on specific conservation targets, and initially focus within grassland areas, as they are the most widely mapped for invasive species. In accordance with New York State Parks policy, herbicide treatments will be used as a last resort, when other treatment options are deemed to be unlikely to provide effective control or where necessary to prevent impacts to important archeological resources at the site. Herbicide use is estimated at a maximum limit of 80 acres per year. This acreage will decrease as invasive species within the priority area are removed. Manual removals will occur over an estimated 150 acres, targeting isolated plants or clumps within that area and avoiding archeologically sensitive areas. Herbicide treatments in 2017 will target pale swallowwort (Cynanchum rossicum) using Triclopyr applied via backpack sprayers in summer 2017. Certified applicators will be used and all appropriate environmental and health and safety regulations will be followed. Treated areas will be restored with native species plantings. The project is located at the Ganondagan State Historic Site on State Route 444 in Town of Victor, New York.

Seneca County - The Village of Waterloo Village Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Water System Improvements Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the Village of Waterloo Water Treatment Plant (WTP) operation and production of drinking water meeting regulatory requirements during periodic high turbidity and taste and odor events. This increased reliability will allow the WTP to serve areas where individual wells have been contaminated. A new elevated storage tank is also included in the project to replace an 80 year old tank located on Reed Street and to provide additional storage to serve extended service areas. A new upgraded pressure reducing valve is proposed on West River Road to provide adequate flow to the Village tank and system. The tank location is proposed for NYS Route 96 in the Town of Waterloo or North Road within the Village. Four (4) interconnections with the Town of Seneca Falls are also included in the project to increase system reliability and areas for emergency conditions. The project is located at various location in the Village of Waterloo, New York.

The action involves the development of plans for public water supply improvements to the existing Water System in effort to provide public water to properties within the service area, which currently suffers from undersized and deteriorating watermains. The Wayland Village Board is applying for funding assistance from the USDA Rural Development and New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (NYS EFC) to undertake the project.

Along North Main Street, the existing 4 inch watermain will be abandoned in favor of existing larger watermain. Activities include the installation of watermain, fire hydrants, valves, watermain connections, residential hook-ups, road crossings, excavation and bedding materials and surface restoration. The project also includes the replacement of a water storage tank with a new 1,000,000 gallon glass lined steel unit. In addition, the Village of Wayland's North and South well houses will be upgraded, including a small addition and a new treatment process. The purpose of the project is to address public health and safety concerns and not to support or enlarge new residential or other types of development.
