Meeting Scheduled for Braddock Bay Restoration

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District will host a public meeting regarding the Final Design for the Braddock Bay Restoration Project on May 7, 2015, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Town of Greece Town Hall, Greece, New York.

The purpose of the meeting will be to present the final design for the Braddock Bay Ecosystem Restoration project, the current status of the project, and the path forward for implementation.

USACE, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and the Town of Greece has completed the design for ecosystem restoration at Braddock Bay, Monroe County, New York.

The goal of this Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Project 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.

“Braddock Bay is a very special natural area that is threatened by continued erosion from wave action, which has already resulted in the loss of a significant area of emergent wetland habitat,” said James Tierney, Assistant Commissioner, DEC Office of Water Resources.DEC is working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other partners to protect the bay, and we look forward to receiving the public’s views on how we can enhance resiliency against wave action and extreme storm events, while also improving habitat quality within the Braddock Bay complex.”

“The Rochester Embayment Remedial Action Plan Advisory supports the Braddock Bay Restoration project as it is one of the necessary management actions that will contribute to the improvement in fish and wildlife habitat necessary for removal of the habitat beneficial use impairment and furtherance of the effort to delist the Rochester Embayment as an Area of Concern,” said Charles Knauf, Rochester Embayment Remedial Action Plan Oversight Committee Chair.
