Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Town of Islip Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Great Cove Watershed Management Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of the Great Cove Watershed Management Plan (WMP) which will focus on the drainage contributing area to the Great Cove, which extends from just east of the Robert Moses Causeway to just west of Heckscher State Park and north above the Southern State Parkway. There are nine main creeks which contribute to Great Cove - (from west to east) Trues Creek, Thompsons Creek, Lawrence Creek, Watchogue Creek, Penataquit Creek, Awixa Creek, Orowoc Creek, Champlin Creek and Quintuck Creek. The purpose of the WMP is to provide a characterization of the existing natural, cultural and human resources within the watershed, identify key factors impacting the Great Cove watershed, provide watershed-wide and site specific recommendations for watershed and water quality improvements, and provide implementation strategies for each of the watershed recommendations. The project is located in multiple locations of the Great Cove watershed in the Town of Islip, New York.
