Negative Declaration

Niagara County - The City of Lockport, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Water Street Sewer Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of a parallel sewer along Water Street from Clinton Street to Williams Street and replacement of one of the existing parallel sewer lines from Williams Street to West Jackson street in order to reduce capacity constrictions in the combined sewer system along Water Street. The proposed project is intended to alleviate surcharges in the sewer that lead to overflows from several low lying manholes and an overflow structure, which have been observed to discharge sewage to Eighteen Mile Creek in wet weather. The project is anticipated to reduce combined sewer overflow (CSO) events in the City of Lockport by increasing conveyance of sewage to the wastewater treatment plant and may potentially lead to closure of a CSO. By reducing overflow events, the City would like to improve water quality of Eighteen Mile Creek for the protection and enhancement of human health, fish and wildlife, aesthetics, recreation and the economy of the Eighteen Mile Creek area of concern. The project is located along Water Street in the City of Lockport, New York.
