I had to read this post yet again, Ms. Agte is reporting more and more inaccuracies to her Facebook group these days.



It appears that Ms. Agte somehow believes that there is a 6 month review of the "final" version of the SEQR Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) Review and that "no work" will happen in 2022.


Nothing could be further from the truth, nothing new with this Facebook group leader.

There is a waiting period from the time the FEIS is "released" to when it is "accepted" by NYS... and the agencies involved. That time period is 10 days long, according the the SEQR Flow Chart

Currently the Earthen Embankment Integrity Program SEQR process is at Step 9-10. We understand that the NYSCC, as Lead Agency in this action, is still busy answering "public comments", which delayed the release until now. It's the understanding of the ECNA that the Final EIS for Erie Embankment Integrity Program is due out any day now, and once it arrives we will share our comments, but please bear in mind, what is being discussed here is earthen dam SAFETY, even if those embankment dams run along a canal that is used for navigation & recreation.



Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...but there is NO SIX MONTH REVIEW of the Final SEQR Review, it's over.
