|2019-06||Ithaca Reservoir Stream Restoration and Sediment Reduction Project (Six Mile Creek Vineyard)||Deveop a project design which will reduce velocity, sediment and pollution and possibly armor/stabilize outlet to reduce maintance need and reduce risk of vineyard loss of land, and reduce sediment and nutrient loading in creek which flows to City of Ithaca water supply area.||Town of Ithaca, Tompkins County SWCD, Six Mile Creek Vineyard, Seneca Watershed IO, Barton & Loguidice||33000||Non-Agricultural Nonpoint Source Planning and MS4 Mapping Grant||Spring 2023 Completion Deadline||Pjt_2019-06.pdf Pjt_2019-06_map.pdf|
|2019-23||County Road 150 Streambank / Roadbank Stabilization Project||This project will address approximately 300' of streambank stabilization and erosive undercutting of County Rd. 150, a main artery from the shores of Cayuga Lake to the Village of Interlaken and the state routes nearby. Without stabilization, County Rd. Since the flooding in 2018, sedimentation and streambank erosion have increased. The NRCS EWP project will also include work sites on Knight Street and Mechanic Street in the Village of Interlaken which will reduce flood risk to property and reduce stream erosion. Additional project work will include stream and roadbank stabilization.||Seneca County SWCD, USDA NRCS, Village of Interlaken, Private Landowners||$350,000 - $600,000 (Estimate)||USDA NRCS Emergency Watershed Protection Program||Construction in 2023||EWP Fact Sheet: https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/sites/default/files/2022-08/NRCS_EWPP_Fact%20Sheet-2021.pdf||Pjt_2019-23.pdf Pjt_2019-23_InterlakenPjt.pdf|
|2019-24||County Road 150 Streambank Erosion & Retention Basin Project||As a result of the August 2018 flood, the existing railbed and culverts could not withstand the massive amounts of stormwater, overtopping the railbed. This resulted in substantial downstream erosion and subsequent sediments washing downstream. The existing culverts are not functional and future storm events will impact downstream infrastructure and will create more erosion transporting more sediment and debris to Cayuga Lake.||NYSEG, Seneca County SWCD||$350,000 - $600,000 (Estimate)||NYSEG||2022||Pjt_2019-24.pdf|
|2019-25||Fall Creek/Virgil Creek Roadway Reconstruction and Ditch Stabilization Program||Replacing an undersized culvert, rehabilitating the stream channel, protecting infrastructure and providing fish passage in the Cayuga Lake watershed at Kohne Road.||Cortland County SWCD, County and Municipal Highway Departments||Finger Lakes - Lake Ontario Watershed Protection Alliance (FLLOWPA)||2022||https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/e19286930b9a4546bb3035fee74e3437 and |

|2019-28||VanRiper Conservation Area||Deeply incised stream with significant streambank erosion leading to transport of sediment into Cayuga Lake. Stream has been restored to natural flow allowing for reduction of sediment entering Cayuga Lake and reduced stream velocity and restoration of natural habitat.||Finger Lakes Land Trust, USFWS, Seneca County SWCD||$5,000 - $10,000 (Estimate)||2022||https://www.fllt.org/preserves/van-riper-conservation-area-and-whitlock-nature-preserve/||Pjt_2019-28.pdf Rock_and_Roll_typical_detail.pdf VanRiper_Design.pdf|
