Jefferson County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation - Division of Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Land Acquisition - Perch River Wildlife Management Area will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the acquisition of approximately 200 acres of land proposed by the New York State Department of Transportation. Following that, title to the land is to be transferred to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), to be incorporated into the Perch River Wildlife Management Area. This land will be maintained by NYS DEC as wildlife habitat.
The Environmental Assessment revealed one small to moderate impact from this action: Limitations on access to existing hay fields and pasture lands. At present this parcel supports a small farming operation. Approximately 40 acres are used by livestock as pasture, and 85 acres of hay field are harvested annually. After completion of the project, the farming operation is expected to continue on an approximately 25 acre portion of the same property that will remain in private ownership. To replace the farm's lost pasture and hay field average, access to all or part of the above noted agricultural lands are expected to be made available thru Local Sales/Lease Agreements. The project is located on Allen Road and State Route 180 in the Town of Brownville, New York.
