Public Notice

Withdrawal of Proposed Amendment to Freshwater Wetland Maps

In response to a proposed freshwater wetland map amendment first published on October 3, 2012, please be advised, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) is no longer seeking to have Wetland R-82 added to the official NYS Article 24 Wetland Map 18 of 39, Riverhead Quadrangle. The area referred to as Wetland R-82 is located north of County Route 58 and west of Osborne Avenue in the Town of Riverhead. As such, property owners would no longer need to apply for Article 24 Permits from the NYS DEC, for work in the area of Wetland R-82 or its 100 foot adjacent area. It is important to note that there are several other NYS DEC mapped and regulated wetlands in the immediate vicinity of R-82. Article 24 permits would still be required for certain activities in or near these mapped wetlands.

Notice is hereby given pursuant to Article 24 (Freshwater Wetlands Act) of the NYS ECL and 6 NYCRR Part 664 that NYS DEC withdraws the proposed freshwater wetland map amendment for Wetland R-82 without approving the proposed change.
