Abstract : Olcott Harbor is located in Olcott, a village of the town of Newfane, NY, at the mouth of Eighteenmile Creek at Lake Ontario. A report, completed in 1978, recommended modifications to the harbor, including the construction of various lakeshore facilities. Construction was authorized to begin in 1986, but due to legislative, technical, and physical changes the project was reevaluated. This General Reevaluation Report documents technical studies. As a result of the reevaluation a plan called the Refined Plan 10A Modified was selected. This plan met all economic, engineering, and enviornmental criteria. However, due to current policy constraints the plan could not be approved and the current recommended plan is no Federal action....Wave analysis, Recreational boating and fishing, Sediment analysis, Geology, Boat safety, Hydrologic study.
