Project Title: New York State Department of Transportation

Location: Remsen to Lake Placid Railroad corridor in the Towns of North Elba, Harrietstown, Santa Clara, Altamont, Piercefield, Long Lake, Webb and Forestport, in the counties of Essex, Franklin, St. Lawrence, Hamilton, Herkimer and Oneida, New York

For Adirondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: May 29, 2008

Project Description: The action involves mowing, brush cutting, tree removals and herbicide application along The Remsen to the Lake Placid Travel Corridor in order to maintain vegetation control for current and future rail service and trail development and maintenance, involving wetlands and state lands under the jurisdiction of NYS DOT. Vegetation management of the corridor was previously approved by the Agency in permits 98-108 and 98-108R. Minor changes to the vegetation management of the corridor are proposed as part of this project. No new herbicides are proposed to be used for vegetation management other than those previously approved, at this time. All herbicides will be applied in strict compliance with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) labels. The vegetation management plan is subject to the Remsen/Lake Placid Travel Corridor Final Management Plan. NYS DOT and NYS DEC have proposed an amendment to the plan for vegetative management of the corridor in conjunction with this project. The Agency is reviewing concurrently the proposed vegetation management amendment to the Travel Corridor Final Management Plan for compliance with the State Land Master Plan and will make a determination separate from this project.

Negative Declaration

Essex County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Addition of Mill Brook to the Lake Champlain sea lamprey control program will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The long-term program of sea lamprey control in Lake Champlain as described in the 2001 Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS) indicates that streams newly colonized by sea lamprey would be added to the control program as needed following site-specific environmental review. A significant larval sea lamprey population was first discovered in Mill Brook in 2007, and wounding rates on Lake Champlain fishes are still far above program objectives. Thus the addition of Mill Brook to the control program is relevant. This review is intended to address the potential of lampricide use in Mill Brook and its delta as described in the FSEIS, and concludes there would be no significant impacts either on Mill Brook itself or cumulatively within the broader context of the control program as a whole. The potential adverse impacts from lampricide applications for sea lamprey control in Lake Champlain have been thoroughly discussed in the 1990 FEIS "Use of lampricides in a temporary program of sea lamprey control in Lake Champlain with an assessment of certain fish populations and sportfisheries" and its subsequent FSEIS referenced above. No significant adverse impacts were identified during the eight-year program covered by the FEIS and fundamental mitigation strategies established in the FEIS and FSEIS will be continued.

The project is located as described in the following table:

Stream Stream Miles a Delta Acresb County Township
Mount Hope Brook 0.4 89 Essex Moriah

a Miles refers to the length of stream to be treated from application point to mouth.

b Acreage contained within the potential delta treatment boundary area. Treated acreage will likely be substantially reduced from the acreage stated here. Delta larval sea lamprey distributions will be mapped using modified deepwater electrofishing techniques. Only those sections with sufficient densities of sea lamprey ammocoetes will be treated.
