Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to summarize alternative water and related land management plans developed goals of the Buffalo Metropolitan Area. Four studies comprise the Corps Buffalo Metropolitan Area Study. Since the Erie-Niagara Counties Regional Planning Board has developed a comprehensive area-wide waste treatment management plan under Section 208 of Public Law 92-500. The major emphasis of the study is to develop methods of reducing the amount of phosphorus, determined to be the limiting nutrient, from nonpoint sources. The Erie-Niagara Counties Regional Planning Board has completed their report on areawide waste treatment consisting of 19 volumes. The report is being reviewed by the U.S. Environmental Conservations who are expected to complete their certification review in 1979 for the Governors acceptance. Author
