Negative Declaration

Hamilton County - The Town of Long Lake, as lead agency, has determined that proposed improvements to its Water District No. 2 water system under the New York State (NYS) DWSRF Project (Project #16278) would not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the addressing of defiencies identified by New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) with resepect to water supply capacity, finished water storage, low system pressures and insufficient chlorine contact time. The Project includes the addition of 2 new drilled wells and associated wellhead pump station, addition of a new 500,000 gallon gravity fed finished water storage tank, improved chlorine contact time design features and new pipes within the distribution system. The Project was recently revised to include acquisition of up to 10 additional acres of land around the District's existing surface water treatment plant (WTP) on a 0.38 acre in-holding lot within the proposed 10 acre acquisition in order to allow water main construction from the WTP to the water storage tank to be constructed on another recently acquired parcel designated for municipal uses. The 10 acre parcel proposed for acquisition allows the District needed space to better secure the public water supply, construct needed materials handling and sanitary facilities, and construct backwash handling facilities that provide better separation distances from a nearby trout stream. The acquisition also affords the potential for future ground water source development to further supplement the surface water source. The project is located in and around the Hamlet of Long Lake within the Town of Long Lake, New York.

Essex, Warren and Washington Counties - The Lake George Park Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Development of a Watershed Protection Program and Promulgation of Regulations Governing Stream Corridor Management and Tree/Vegetation Removal may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the promulgation of regulations which when enacted will fulfill the statutory purposes expressed in 43-0112 (5) of the Environmental Conservation Law "The Commission shall, after consultation with the department, the Department of Health, the Adirondack Park Agency and each municipality located in whole or in part within the Park, further promulgate regulations relative to stream corridor management which shall include standards for the location of roads, stream channelization, the frequency of stream crossings, and timber harvesting and vegetative cutting restrictions within designated stream corridors. The regulations adopted pursuant to this section may be stricter than regulations promulgated by the department."

It is expected that the regulations will establish permit thresholds and design standards for projects in designated stream corridors and for projects which involve removal of significant amounts of vegetation. It is also expected that the regulations will provide administrative mechanisms to identify and reduce impacts from previous development in stream corridors.

The project is located in Lake George, New York.
