Negative Declaration

Chautauqua County - The New York State Department Of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Gary Witt USDA/NRCS Wetland Reserve Program (WRP) Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a wetland restoration and enhancement project to improve wildlife habitat within a 55.6 acre WRP permanent easement site within and adjacent to State regulated wetland #EC-2. The project involves restoring aquatic and emergent wetland habitat by constructing an approximate 3,000 foot long earthen structure with a water control structure (maximum inundated area will be approximately 17.8 acres) and complex of potholes with connecting level ditches to create open-water areas for waterfowl and amphibian habitat. The project is located at 4859 State Rt. 60 (west side) in the Town of Gerry, Chautauqua County.
