For Adirondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: June 10, 2010

Project Description: The applicant proposes a 33.5 acre expansion to their existing 70 acre paper mill sludge landfill, for a total of 103.5 acres. The landfill will consist of two new cells, Area VI and Area VII. Area VI will have a 30 acre footprint (including a 15 acre overlap with existing closed cell) with a final top elevation of 365 feet above sea level (ASL). Area VII will have an 18.5 acre footprint, with a final top elevation of 347 feet ASL. The landfill will be used for disposal of primary and secondary sludge from IP's wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), as well as solid waste generated from the Mill. The landfill will be constructed with a double liner system, a groundwater underdrain system, leachate storage basins, and stormwater sediment basins. Leachate collected from landfill cells will be conveyed to an existing onsite waste water treatment plant. Stormwater, after the landfill areas are capped, will be conveyed to intermittent streams. The project involves filling approximately 0.35 acres of Adirondack Park Agency jurisdictional wetlands and the creation of approximately 1.1 acres of new wetlands to mitigate wetland impacts. International Paper generates approximately 125,000 cubic yards of waste annually which will be disposed of at the expanded landfill. The new cells will provide 30 years capacity to the Mill's on-site sludge handling. Extensive visual impact assessments, hydrogeologic, stormwater and wetland reports were prepared for this project. The project is also under review by the Town of Ticonderoga, New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and the Unitied States Army Corps of Engineers.

For Adiorondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: June 10,2010

Project Description: The project is briefly described as follows: A stormwater management project being undertaken by NYSDOT within the Route 9/9N highway right-of-way and on private land. As part of the proposed stormwater management project approximately 1.78 acres of wetlands will be constructed on an upland parcel of land to create forebays, emergent marsh wetlands, shrub wetlands and deep pools and gravel wetlands. The wetlands will be connected with weirs, piping and outlet control structures. The intent of the project is to create a series of wetlands and direct the stormwater runoff from NYS Route 9/9N through the wetlands and outlet it into Westbrook. The stormwater runoff will get passive treatment as it flows through the newly constructed wetlands. Ultimately the stormwater will flow through Westbrook and outlet into the waters of Lake George. Pretreatment of the stormwater will improve the water quality of the stormwater before it enters Westbrook and the waters of Lake George. The project includes extensive vegetative plantings and boardwalks so that the project site will ultimately become part of a much larger public park in the vicinity of the project site. The project includes demolition and disposal of a 13,260 square foot structure on the project site. The demolition debris will be disposed of at the Town of Lake George land fill and in accordance with all New York State Department of Environmental Conservation solid waste management regulations.

APA Project Number: 2010G-1

Project Title: General Permit for Installation of New or Replacement Telecommunications Towers at Existing Agency Approved Sites

Location: Various private lands in municipalities throughout the Adirondack Park.

Project Description: The Adirondack Park Agency is proposing a new general permit entitled "Installation of New or Replacement Telecommunications Towers at Existing Agency Approved Sites" that would allow for an expedited review process for 1) the installation of one new telecommunications tower in the immediate proximity of an existing telecommunications structure previously approved by the Agency and where the existing access drive and utility infrastructure are used to the greatest extent practicable and 2) the replacement of a pre-existing telecommunications tower or a telecommunications tower previously approved by the Agency to address structural deficiencies of the existing tower in order to accommodate co-location of an additional telecommunications provider on said structure; with potential for some de-minimus increase in height. To be approvable under this General Permit, there must be no significant adverse change in the overall visibility of the tower site as seen from public viewing points.

The Agency's Deputy Director of Regulatory Programs would determine whether the project(s) as proposed adequately conform to certain eligibility criteria. Only if it is determined that the project is in conformance with that criteria will use of the General Permit be allowed. Otherwise, an individual permit application will be required.

The projects authorized by this General Permit would be undertaken and completed only as described in a completed General Permit Application and as shown on approved project site plans and in accordance with the terms and conditions of a separate General Permit Certificate to be obtained for each project from the Agency. If the activities are approvable, the Agency's Deputy Director of Regulatory Programs would issue the Certificate generally within several days of determining the application complete and conducting a field visit. The Certificate would need to be recorded by the Project Sponsor in the County Clerk's Office.
