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:
