Negative Declaration

Onondaga County - Onondaga County, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Harbor Brook Floatables Control Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves installation of a net bag structure housing 3 net bags to be placed in the brook to capture solids and floatables from the entire cross section of the stream. The equipment will float in high flow periods and will provide for passage of aquatic life via at least a 6-inch clear space beneath the net bag assembly at all times. When sufficiently full, the net bags will be removed, disposed of and new bags installed. No excavation of the channel is required. The project is located in Harbor Brook about 2500 ft. north of Hiawatha Boulevard West between Erie Boulevard and I-690 in Syracuse.
