The new facilities will be built to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Eight trees have been identified by a forester and marked for removal to provide room for facility improvements. Tree cutting will be in compliance with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Division of Lands and Forests Policy 91-2 on Cutting, Removal or Destruction of Trees and Other Vegetation on Forest Preserve Lands.

Negative Declaration

Jefferson County - The Village of Clayton, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Clayton Riverwalk Phase 3 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development and implementation of a waterfront access design to address damaged portions of the existing seawall and overlying concrete slab and provide public access paths from Riverside Drive to the waterfront. The damage includes failed concrete slabs and supporting steel angles, deteriorated seawalls, broke pavement and timber decking in poor condition. The improvements include seawall replacement and rehabilitation, a new overlying concrete slab and slab support reconstruction, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant public access to and along the waterfront, fencing separating the public Riverwalk from adjacent private property, signage, and "night-sky friendly" walkway lighting. The project is located between Riverside Drive and St. Lawrence River in the Village of Clayton, New York.

Oneida County - The New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Prospect -Trenton Falls Road over Nine Mile Feeder Canal Bridge Rehabilitation Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the rehabilitation of the deteriorated bridge structure by installing a structural liner within the span of the arch and filling the space between the liner and underside of the arch with grout material to stabilize it. The liner will also be longer than the existing bridge so earthwork to reshape the embankment area will be needed, in addition to placing stone in the outlet channel as scour protection for the new insert. There will be unavoidable impacts to the Waters of the United States (US) to make these changes and permits will be required from US Army Corps of Engineers and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) in advance of construction. The Bridge was considered as a contributing feature to the New York State Barge Canal Historic District under Section 106 review. The project was determined to have an Adverse Effect on the structure, and an interagency MOA was executed by Federal Highway Administration and the New York State Historic Preservation Office with NYS DOT which details the impacts and mitigation for the effects of the project. Additionally the project will impact approximately 0.5 acre of mature trees which may be considered as potential habitat for the federally listed as threatened Northern Long-eared bat species. Mitigation measures include tree cutting during the winter hibernation period to avoid the species and a pre-construction survey of the structure. The project is located on Prospect-Trenton Falls Road in the Town of Trenton, New York.

The project will replace a number of deteriorating manholes and catch basins with acceptable green infrastructure practices throughout the Village.
