Cattaraugus County - The City of Olean, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed City of Olean Water Storage Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of two new storage tanks to replace two aged and deteriorated open water reservoirs. The existing reservoirs have become extremely costly to maintain and thus threaten the economic future of the area and the public safety as well. The project is located at 759 South Union Street, Olean, NY.

Erie County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mark Andol Pond will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of a 28 foot high earth dam that would create a 1.88 acre private pond, designed to impound 9.87 acre feet of water at the permanent pool elevation. The service and auxiliary spillways will both discharge to an existing stream. As part of the proposal, about 850 linear feet of unprotected, seasonal stream would be relocated away from the base of the dam. That streamís flows will be carried via a newly constructed parabolic channel which is designed to handle flows from a 100 year storm event. The damís discharge flow is also sized for that event. The project is located on property owned by Mark Andol located at 3679 East Blood Road, Town of Marilla, Erie County about 1300 feet southeast of the intersection of East Blood and Liberia Roads.

Erie County - The Lancaster Central School District, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Aurora Middle and William Street Schools Facilities Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The proposed action involves various facilities improvements including the construction of additions to, and the reconstruction and renovation of, the Aurora Middle School (SED Project No. 14-19-01-06-0-002-012) and William Street School (SED Project No. 14-19-01-06-0-017-004) (the ďProjectĒ).
