Natural Infrastructure Project Approved in Danby

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

The Legislature appropriated $8,000 from the County’s Natural Infrastructure Capital Program to support the Lindsay-Parsons Wetland Buffer Project—Waterman Tract, assisting the Finger Lakes Land Trust in acquiring 9 acres of property that buffers 900 feet of a wetland system on the Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve in the Town of Danby.  The project will further enhance the buffer area by removing invasive species and planting native trees and shrubs.  The Natural Infrastructure Capital Program protects and enhances natural systems that can help to mitigate impacts of intensive rainfall events, help decrease sediment loads in streams and Cayuga Lake; and protects overall water quality in streams, aquifers, and Cayuga Lake, with the goal of reducing risks of flooding and protecting public and private water supplies.
