ENB - Region 5 Notices 10/08/2008

Public Notice

Proposed General Permit

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Region 5 proposes to issue a region-wide General Permits (GP) for the minor activity of temporary stream crossings for logging activities, regulated under Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) Article 15, Title 5 (Protection of Waters). The GP will authorize the temporary placement, construction, maintenance and removal of culverts and bank-to-bank bridges, for the expressed purpose of crossing regulated non-navigable streams during the conduct of logging activities. Staff has concluded that there will be no significant environmental impact to the Region's aquatic resources when the activities are conducted in accordance with the terms and conditions contained in the GP, which have been standardized to improve natural resources compliance, protection and enforcement. A temporary stream crossing subject to the GP would only be authorized after an applicant submits a completed Authorization Form to the NYS DEC, and staff determine that the proposal therein meets such terms and conditions of the GP. A State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Negative Declaration has been prepared and is on file.

Comments will be accepted until October 23, 2008. Please direct comments and questions to: Deputy Regional Permit Administrator Marc Migliore at the Regional Sub-office in Warrensburg, 232 Golf Course Rd., P.O.Box 220, Warrensburg, NY 12885-0220, Phone: (518) 623-1285, E-mail: msmiglio@gw.dec.state.ny.us.
