Herkimer County - The Village of Ilion Village Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Water Filtration Plant and Dam Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

St. Lawrence County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Kirkpatrick Mine will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to develop and operate a 30.5 acre surface sand and gravel mine within a 229.1 acre parcel 6,000 feet north of the hamlet of Hermon. The project calls for the mining of 29.95 acres of land with 0.42 acres haul road. The project site is on property owned by Cedric Kirkpatrick. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Hailsboro silt loam, Kalurah fine sandy loam, Nicholville very fine sandy loam, Pyrites fine sandy loam and Pyrites and Kalurah Soils which occupy the site. Mining is not proposed to take place below the local water table which is believed to be at least 10 feet below the level of the proposed excavation. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations, and for removal of material from the bank face. Mining is proposed to remove over one million cubic yards of sand over the estimated 50 year operational life of the mine. Material will be stockpiled as unprocessed run-of-bank, or processed with portable screens. Maximum processing rates for the screen and crushing operations will not exceed 150 tons-per-hour (TPH). Final reclamation will restore the site to vegetated open space to promote wildlife habitat. Mine areas will be graded and stockpiled topsoil will be spread, and seeded with an approved USDA SCS seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine area is 30.5 (LOM) acres. The project is located 1,000 feet west of County Route 21, approximately 6,000 feet north of the Hamlet of Hermon in the Town of Canton, New York.

St. Lawrence County - The Town of Massena, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Obstruction Removal Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal to remove or modify obstructions that pentrate Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 77 surfaces and to construct landslide facilities to accomadate existing based aircraft demand and future planned private development. The proposed project, as shown in the Massena International Airport NEPA Environmental Assesment for Five-Year Airport Capital Improvement Program Figure 2-3 Draft Final Report published November 2009, specifically involves the following:

• Removal of approximately 57 acres of vegetation and 15 individual trees located on-airport;
• Removal of approximately 53 acres of vegetation and 16 individual trees located off-airport;
• Replace 750 linear feet of overhead utilities that are obstructions with underground utilities;
• Acquire avigation easements or a one-time right of entry to remove off-airport obstructions of eight parcels; and
• Relocate one residential property owner or acquire an avigation easement to address critical off-airport obstructions.

Since the construction impact area is typically larger than the limits of obstructions identified in the obstruction study, the proposed project limits may range from a minimum of 120 acres up to a maximum of approximately 167 acres of construction impact area necessary to clear the obstructions. The construction impact area is based on access, location and neighboring trees that are of comparable height.

The project is located at the Massena International Airport Richards Field in the Town of Massena, New York.
