Lewis County - The Village of Lowville, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Five Streets Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the full depth reconstruction of the above mention roadways (about 15,500 linear foot) and the replacement of existing sanitary sewer and water mains within these street corridors. Additionally, the laterals/services for these utilities will be replaced in place to the existing street margin. A storm sewer will be installed to separate sanitary waste and storm water runoff. A pumping station is proposed to replace the existing siphon system at Mill Creek (East State Street) while gravity sanitary sewer is proposed to replace the siphon system at Hitchcock Creek (Stowe Street). Additionally, a portion of the gravity sanitary sewer system from Cazenovia Equipment to East State Street via Highland Avenue will be replaced.

Furthermore, there are three locations adjacent to the original project scope in which storm sewer will be upgraded. The areas will include a 2000 foot stretch from Trinity Avenue to Water Street, as well as parts of another bypass storm pipe off of Trinity Avenue and on James Street. It is to be noted that while the water transmission main will remain in the project study area, it is currently no longer in the project scope.

The project is located along Stowe Street, River Street, Shady Avenue, Trinity Avenue and Park Avenue in the Village of Lowville, New York.

St. Lawrence County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mined Land Reclamation Permit Application for Seaway Timber Harvesting, Inc will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to develop and operate a 24.4 acre surface sand and gravel mine within a 66.4 acre parcel off of Lake Ozonia Road. The project site is on property owned by Seaway Timber Harvesting Inc. and lies east of Lake Ozonia Road, approximately 3 miles north westerly of Lake Ozonia in the Town of Hopkinton, New York. The mine is intended to operate as a traditional surface extraction of the Naumburg-Crogan Complex and Potsdam-Tunbridge-Crary Complex soil types. Mining is proposed to take place at a minimum of two feet above the local seasonal high water level. Reclamation will restore the site to open space and forest. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand and gravel mining operations, and for removal of material from the bank face. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 800,000 tons of sand and gravel over the estimated 30 year operational life of the mine. Material will generally be processed with portable crushers and screening plants. Final reclamation will restore the site to vegetated open space to promote wildlife habitat and forest. Mine areas will be graded and stockpiled topsoil will be spread around the edges, and seeded with a warm season (C-4) grass mixture of Switchgrass, Big Bluestem, Little Bluestem, and Sand Lovegrass seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine (LOM) area is 24.4 acres.
