ENB - Region 5 Notices 2/18/2009

Public Notice to Extend Public Comment Period

Franklin and Hamilton Counties - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) and the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) have extended the public comment period on revisions to the Bog River Flow Unit Management Plan from February 20, 2009 to February 27, 2009. To facilitate the process, NYS DEC and APA will be sharing comments received.

As lead agency, NYS DEC prepared the Bog River Complex Draft Amendment/SEIS to the 2002 Unit Management Plan/EIS. The proposed amendment to the draft management plan would allow for continued floatplane access to a limited portion of Lows Lake for approximately four years, with a "sunset" date of Dec. 31, 2012. Under the proposal, floatplane access would be managed under a permit system and designed to minimize user conflicts and resource impacts by controlling the frequency, location and timing of access. The NYS DEC is accepting comments on the proposed amendment through February 27, 2009. The complete document will be available on NYS DEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/22579.html.

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.
