Schoharie County - The Village of Sharon Springs, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Sharon Springs Engleville Pond Intake Pipe Extension will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the relocation of the water intake piping from the bottom of a shallow part of the Village of Sharon Springs Drinking Water Reservoir (Engleville Pond) to a deeper location, where the intake will be affected to a lesser extent from high turbidity due to sediments becoming suspended from wind mixing. The cleaner water found in the deeper pond location will allow the filters to function better at the water treatment plant, and accordingly, help the filtration process remain in compliance with drinking water regulations. The project includes the installation of approximately 840 linear feet of 10 inch intake line, miscellaneous valves, a new intake screen, approximately 20 cubic yards of rip rap for bedding below the intake screen, a temporary access ramp, and other miscellaneous appurtenances. The project is located at Engleville Pond on Mill Pond Road in the Town of Sharon, New York.

Schoharie County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Clearcut, Schoharie RA #14, Stands A-1, A-9, A-11, A-12 and A-13 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves timber harvesting, which includes a 65 acre clearcut of red pine, Norway spruce, and other mixed softwood plantations. The health of the trees in these stands has been declining as they reach maturity. They were planted on a site unsuitable for most softwood species, and consequently have suffered repeated ice damage. There has been widespread mortality in the red pine in these stands. Portions of the stands have been blowing over for the last five years. It is necessary to remove the trees in order to maintain the health and vigor of the overall forest. The project is located on Schoharie Reforestation Area #14, Stands A-1, A-9, A-11, A-12 and A-13 and is approximately three (3) miles east of Franklinton in the Town of Broome, New York.
