Negative Declaration

Allegany County - The Village Board of the Village of Canaseraga, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Sanitary Sewer System will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves addressing potential environmental impacts associated with construction of a new wastewater collection and treatment system. The project as presented at that time anticipated an access road alignment approaching the wastewater treatment plant from the north end of a village street called Meadowbrook Drive. During the process of detailed project design, the access road alignment was changed (see attached maps). The access road lies east of and parallel to Meadowbrook Drive, utilizing a new egress to NYS Route 70. This revised Negative Declaration is issued in consideration of environmental impacts that might result.
