Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Nassau County - The Nassau County Department of Public Works (NCDPW), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Nassau County Mosquito Control and Surveillance Program may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted by the contact person listed below until the close of business on December 31, 2009. Public scoping sessions will be held on November 18, 2009 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Nassau County Legislative Chamber, 1550 Franklin Avenue, Mineola, NY 11501. Through mosquito surveillance and control, the NCDPW and Nassau County Department of Health (NCDOH) work together to suppress mosquito populations that threaten public health (e.g. West Nile Virus) and create significant nuisance problems. To achieve this goal, the County employs Integrated Pest Management (IPM) by focusing on long-term suppression or prevention, with a minimal impact on health, environment, and non-target organisms. IPM incorporates all reasonable measures to prevent mosquito problems by properly identifying species, monitoring population dynamics, and using physical, biological, or chemical population control methods to reduce mosquitoes to acceptable levels. Control measures emphasize prevention and proceed from the most environmentally friendly measures such as education of residents, water management and trapping in detention ponds and sumps, to chemical controls including the application of larvicides and adulticides. Chemical controls are only used if other measures prove to be insufficient. The project is located within the geographic boundaries of Nassau County, New York.
