Notice of Acceptance of Final Generic EIS
Schoharie County - The Town of Conesville, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Manor Kill Watershed. The Final GEIS is available at the Town of Conesville Town Hall in Conesville, New York and the Schoharie County Planning in Cobleskill, New York. The Final GEIS is also available on line at: www.schohariecounty-ny.gov/CountyWebSite/towncon/index.jsp. The action involves the acceptance of a Final GEIS which assesses the impact of future development on water quality in the Manor Kill Watershed. The GEIS provides the Town with a comprehensive evaluation of the Watershed and offers specific tools such as maps, evaluations of potential impacts to these resources and actions the Town and private individuals can take to mitigate negative impacts. A scoping session identified topics of significant concern to be evaluated in the GEIS. This includes, but is not limited to loss of wildlife habitat, loss of recreational opportunities, increase in flooding, loss of land due to flooding, change in water depth, change in land uses, road maintenance along the stream, wind development and its impact, turbidity and erosion in the stream, land purchases and easements, and hamlet development. The GEIS analyzes what the current conditions in the watershed are, what are the vulnerable resources, and how these might be influenced by future actions in the watershed. It further evaluates the likely trends and development that might take place in the watershed and evaluates potential impacts. The project is located on all lands in the Town of Conesville and part of the Town of Gilboa, New York.
