Braddock Bay Restoration Project on the Agenda

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Buffalo District will host a public meeting regarding the Braddock Bay Restoration Project, October 22, 2014, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Town of Greece Town Hall.

The purpose of the meeting will be to present the results of the Braddock Bay Restoration Feasibility Study, the current status of the project, the path forward and to seek innovative ideas and considerations for inclusion in the design.

The USACE in cooperation with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and the Town of Greece has completed a feasibility study to identify a plan for ecosystem restoration at Braddock Bay, Monroe County, NY.

The goal of restoration is to improve habitat diversity of the existing emergent marsh currently dominated by cattail, and to reduce erosion of the existing emergent marsh,” said Craig Forgette, USACE project manager.

The project currently being undertaken by the Army Corps of Engineers is the first step to revitalizing the Braddock Bay area,” said Bill Reilich, Town of Greece supervisor. “We are excited that the project will restore and protect this valuable natural resource, while potentially improving boater access to Braddock Bay. I am greatly appreciative of all the assistance we have received thus far, and look forward to advancing to the next step in the process.”
