Negative Declaration

St. Lawrence County - The Town of Colton, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mosquito Control with Bti and Bs will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of Bacillus thuringiensis var. isrealensi (Bti) and Bacillus sphaericus 2362 (Bs) to standing water and freshwater wetlands to control mosquito larvae. Applications will be made by ground, primarily hand broadcast only as needed, determined by monitoring for larval populations. The project is located in the Hamlets of Colton and South Colton, Town of Colton, New York.
