Negative Declaration

Herkimer County - The Town of German Flatts, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Fulmer Creek GreenPlain Floodplain Restoration and Flood Mitigation Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves creating a floodplain and a more natural channel configuration that has the capacity to convey the 100-year flood flows, reduce erosion, and restore habitat. The estimated bank full dimensions would be 60 feet wide by 3 feet deep and the floodplain bench would range in width between 110 feet and 145 feet wide. To accomplish this work portions of several roadways within the Village of Mohawk will need to be removed, as well as utilities and walls along the stream bank. The restoration work will include bank stabilization, stream habitat enhancement, installation of flow control measures, and the creation of two open space areas that will be used as public recreation parks.

The project site extends 6,850 linear feet along Fulmer Creek from 100 linear feet downstream of West Main Street to the upstream extent at the former Leather Stocking Trailer Park in the Village of Mohawk and Town of German Flatts, New York,
