The FEIS is available to view on the NYS DEC website: http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/22579.html. As lead agency, in response to public comments received on the Bog River Complex Amendment/SEIS to the 2002 Unit Management Plan/EIS, DEC has prepared a revised Bog River Complex Amendment/SEIS and accepted it as Final.
