Notice of Acceptance of Final SEIS

Franklin and Hamilton Counties - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the Proposed Amendments to the 2002 Bog River Unit Management Plan. The action involves the finalization of the Environmental Impact Statement to the Amendment to the Bog River Complex Unit Management Plan. NYS DEC proposes to amend the 2002 Bog River Unit Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (UMP/EIS) to allow for continued public float plane access to Lows Lake, in the Town of Colton, St. Lawrence County, New York, for a limited period of time and subject to a mandatory permit system that will be established through regulation. Permit restrictions would be designed to minimize user conflicts and resource impacts by controlling the frequency, location of and timing of float plane access into Lows Lake. The Department proposes that the annual permit system be maintained for either (i) a period of ten years, or (ii) until such time as the State or any land conservation organization acquires through fee title, easement or other legally enforceable means the riparian rights for motorized access associated with the last major in-holding on Lows Lake (currently owned by the Hiawatha Council of Boy Scouts), whichever occurs first. The Bog River Complex is located in the Counties of Franklin, Hamilton and St. Lawrence. Lows Lake is located in the Town of Colton, St. Lawrence County.
