Negative Declaration

Chautauqua County - The Town of Westfield, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed NYS Route 5 Water Benefit District No. 1 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development of a new water district that will connect to the existing water main to the West. Water District No. 1 includes a total of approximately 6,000 linear feet of 8 inch and 12 inch water main, serving approximately 27 equivalent dwelling units (EDUs). The new water district is proposed in order to address local concerns regarding insufficient and poor water quality in existing private wells as well as provide a system for fire protection to an area that has none. The project will provide a safe and reliable potable water supply to the local residents and eliminate the health risks associated with the quality and quantity of ground water in the area.. The project is located along NYS Route 5 in the Town of Westfield, New York.
