Notice of Intent to Prepare an EIS and Notice of Completion of Draft Supplemental EIS

Franklin and Hamilton Counties - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) as lead agency, has prepared a Bog River Complex Draft Amendment/SEIS to the 2002 Unit Management Plan/EIS.

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 by permit, in the Town of Colton, St. Lawrence County, New York, for four years. 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 a period of four years. Upon approval of the UMP Amendment, the Department will promulgate regulations establishing a permit system for float planes using Lows Lake. The regulations will include a "sunset" clause that automatically terminates the regulations and float plane access to Lows Lake on December 31, 2012. The Department will manage Lows Lake west of the Town line as wilderness, precluding both public and administrative use of motor vehicles, motor boats and aircraft to the extent prohibited by aN APSLMP wilderness classification.

Possible adverse impacts are noise and visual impacts associated with continued float plane access to Lows Lake. Mitigation of these impacts will be achieved through permit conditions which will limit the location, frequency and timing of float plane access.

The Bog River Management Area is located in the Towns of Tupper Lake, Long Lake, Colton, and Piercefield in the counties of Franklin, Hamilton and St. Lawrence, New York.

The Department is accepting comments on the proposed amendment through February 20, 2009.

The complete document will be available on NYS DEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/22579.html.
