Negative Declaration

Albany County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed New York State Early Warning Weather Detection System will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The New York State Mesonet Early Warning Weather Detection Systems is a proposed statewide network of weather stations designed to measure weather observations and to provide detailed data to federal, state and local communities. The proposed weather station at the Five Rivers Environmental Education Center is to feature a 33 foot steel tower on a concrete foundation, equipped with weather measuring devices. Within the fenced area will hold a rain gauge, solar panel and battery equipment to power the site, and an equipment shelter. The project is located at Five Rivers Environmental Center, 56 Game Farm Road in Delmar, New York.

Otsego County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Otsego RA #2, Stands A-9, 10, 12 and 17 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of registered herbicides to undesirable woody and herbaceous plants (American beech, hophornbeam and striped maple) on 76 acres of State forest to create conditions suitable for seed germination and the establishment of desirable (commercial) timber species. The abundance of these undesirable plant species present on the site are growing at a density that interferes with the development of desirable forest regeneration. Herbicide application is the most effective way to eliminate undesirable plant species that interfere with the development of desirable forest regeneration. The project is located on Town Line Road in the Town of Cherry Valley, New York.
