NYSEG wants to dredge creek in Wayne

    WAYNE—The New York State Electric and Gas Corporation is seeking permission to remove approximately 425 cubic yards of accumulated sediment from the stream that runs through the County Route 87 culvert.
    Thomas Haley, engineer for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, explained NYSEG is only applying to dredge 50 feet upstream and 50 feet downstream from the culvert. He added the culvert is just south of the intersection with Route 230.
    Haley said NYSEG’s intent is to start the work in August and finish in September. He explained workers will dredge the sediment with an excavator at the edge of the channel. The dredged material will be de-watered and disposed of in a DEC permitted disposal facility.
    Haley explained there is very little water flow in the stream and sediment has built up near the culvert. He said there is very little water from the lake; most of the flow is from stormwater or runoff from the road.
    While the project did not require any State Environmental Quality Review, the state will accept public input on the application. Comments on this project can be submitted in writing to Haley (NYSDEC, 6274 Avon-Lima Road, Avon, N.Y. 14414) no later than Aug. 2. For more, call 585-226-5393.
