The existing dock extends approximately 38 feet into the lake and the new dock will extend 40 feet from the shoreline and consist of a 4 foot x 32 foot walkway and an 8 foot x 21 foot transversely situated section, to form the "L"-shape. The proposed replacement dock will be built without excavation, fill or cribbing. The dock will be constructed using steel C-channel, 2 x 12 pressure treated lumber and 5/4 x 6 pressure treated decking.

Project Title: Langevin Excavation, Inc. Mineral Extraction at Benson Mines

Location: NYS Route 3 in the Town of Clifton, New York.

For Adirondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: August 12, 2010

Project Description: A mineral extraction involving the removal of mine tailings remaining from the former J&L Steel mine operation. Tailings will be screened and crushed to produce crushed stone for construction material and hauled offsite. The operation will involve a Life of Mine area of 19.78 acres, including the haul road, and an affected area of 9.93 acres. The average and maximum annual production is proposed to be 750 and 7,500 cubic yards, respectively. A total of about 200,000 cubic yards of material will be extracted over the 30-year Life of Mine period. Processed stone will be transported off-site using an internal haul road, County Route 6 and NYS Route 3. The daily maximum dump truck trips are projected to be two trucks/hour. Reclamation will be ongoing and concurrent with mining. The land will be reclaimed as meadow/grassland upon completion of the removal of the available tailings. The area will be allowed to naturally regenerate into woodland.


Negative Declaration

Lewis County - The Town of Greig, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law to Impose Zoning Regulations will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves developing a comprehensive set of definitions, regulations and procedures for approval of commercial water extraction within the Town of Greig. The location in which such operations will be allowed will be established by a floating zone procedure requiring a minimum of fifty (50) acres. Such commercial water extraction operations have the potential of being located in any area within the township of Greig, New York

Herkimer, Lewis, Oneida and St. Lawrence Counties - The Adirondack Park Agency (APA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed General Permit for Installation of New or Replacement Telecommunications Towers at Existing Agency Approved Sites will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by Adirondack Park Agency for 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 project is located in all or portions of the following within the Adirondack Park "Blue Line": St. Lawrence, Essex, Oneida, Lewis, Clinton, Franklin, Herkimer, Hamilton, Warren, Saratoga, Washington and Fulton Counties, New York.
