Erie County - The Town Board of the Town of West Seneca, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cazenovia Creek Ice Control Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the Town of West Seneca’s acquisition of a 163± acre easement area across privately owned lands adjoining Cazenovia Creek, together with Army Corps of Engineers construction of an ice retention structure across the Creek. The ice retention structure is designed to prevent or minimize downstream flooding by triggering ice buildups behind the structure for better control of elevated Creek waters in designated easement areas. The Town of West Seneca will use its eminent domain powers to acquire a flowage easement for approximately 163 acres of land adjacent to the North and South banks of a 9300± foot segment of Cazenovia Creek in the Town approximately between the intersection of Main and Seneca Streets east to just past the intersection of Seneca Street and Center Road. An ice retention structure consisting of nine concrete piers (5 foot diameter, 17 feet on center) will be installed in the Creek approximately 2,300 feet upstream of the Mill Road Bridge. The structure is intended to promote the retention of ice formed in the Creek’s headwaters in order to reduce ice jamming and attendant flooding downstream from the structure. The easement lands are better suited from a topographic and land use perspective to handle elevated Creek levels resulting from ice jamming while minimizing damage to property and threats to public safety. The project is located in the Town of West Seneca, Erie County, New York.
