Wayne County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Great Sodus Bay Federal Navigational Channel Dredging will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The action involves the USACE proposing to dredge the Federal Navigation channels of Great Sodus Bay Harbor to maintain sufficient depth for shallow-draft recreational and commercial vessels. The channels would be dredged to a depth of -15 feet Low Water Depth Datum (LWD). Dredging would take place between July 15 the and October 1st. The USACE estimates that up to 95,000 cubic yards of material will be dredged by means of a mechanical of hydraulic dredge. Dredged material would then be placed in either the existing USACE open-lake disposal area or in a new nearshore placement area for course-grain sediment to be located approximately 2,000 feet east of the Harbor's East Pier. The northern limits of the nearshore placement area would be at the -11 foot low water datum contour and the southern limit would be located at the ordinary high water mark. Sediment analysis has demonstrated that the material is suitable for both open-lake disposal and nearshore placement. The project is located Channel of Great Sodus Bay Channel and Lake Ontario, New York.
