For Adirondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: January 23, 2013

Project Description: The action involves construction of an elevated boardwalk and footbridge involving wetlands to facilitate access between isolated parcels of private landholding. The boardwalk will be 3 feet wide and 30 feet long, including steps at both ends, and will be elevated 18 inches above grade. The arched wooden footbridge will be 3 feet wide and 33 feet, 4 inches long. The footbridge will span navigable water known as the "setback," a pond that outlets to the Oswegatchie River. The Oswegatchie is not a designated river in this area. The boardwalk and footbridge are 8 feet apart. Wetlands are located on the northerly parcel, but not on the southerly parcel in the vicinity of the proposed structures. The wetlands consist of wet meadow covertype having a value rating of "3" pursuant to 9 NYCRR §578. There will be eight metal poles supporting the boardwalk in the wetland. The support structure for the bridge is immediately adjacent to, but not in, the wetland.

Negative Declaration

Lewis County - The Village of Castorland, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Wastewater Treatment Facilities Corrective Action Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the improvements to the Village Wastewater Treatment Facility to comply with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Consent Order. This will require the construction of a new wastewater treatment facility and address inflow and infiltration problems associated with the current collection facilities. The project is located in the Village of Castorland, New York.
