Negative Declaration

Herkimer, Lewis, Oneida Counties - The New York Sate Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices to Control Invasive Species on NYS DEC Administered Lands in the Adirondack Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

This project involves a revision of the 2015 Inter-Agency Guidelines to allow for rapid response to treat occurrences of terrestrial and aquatic invasive species on forest preserve lands in the Adirondack Park. This change will allow NYS DEC to expedite review of work plans and issue permits to qualified organizations to eradicate invasive species under the following conditions: 1) the infested area is less than 0.1 acres in size for terrestrial invasive plants, and 10 acres or less in size for invasive forest pests; 2) there are no threatened, rare, or endangered species on the site; 3) there are no adverse impacts to wetlands; 4) treatment will follow approved Best Management Practices (BMP) contained in the Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices to Control Invasive Species on NYS DEC Administered lands in the Adirondack Park, and; 5) all federal and state pesticide regulations will be followed. Work Plans are required for mechanical or chemical control of terrestrial invasive plant infestations 0.1 of an acre or less, or chemical control of invasive forest pest infestations 10.0 acres or less.

The project is located in counties or portions of counties in the Adirondack Park (Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Lewis and Oneida).

Herkimer and Oneida Counties - The Mohawk Valley Water Authority (MVWA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mohawk Valley Water Authority Raw Water Transmission Upgrades will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

Raw water is currently conveyed approximately 3 miles from Hinckley Reservoir to MVWA's Hinckley Water Treatment Plant (WTP) via 24- and 36-inch parallel water transmission pipelines that were installed in 1905 and 1958, respectively. Due to current hydraulic limitations, the existing 24- and 36- inch water transmission pipelines' combined capacity is less than the current WTP-rated treatment capacity (32 MGD) when the Hinckley Reservoir level is below moderately low water levels.

the project involves a proposal by MVWA to construct one new water transmission pipeline of sufficient capacity to handle the currently permitted withdrawal. The proposed water transmission pipeline will be constructed in three phases. The proposed water transmission pipeline will include a combination of 49-inch and 54-inch diameter piping. The existing 36-inch water transmission pipeline will remain in service and function as a backup to the new water transmission pipeline. The existing 24-inch pipeline is intended to be abandoned in place. Both existing water transmission pipelines will remain in service until the new water transmission pipeline is completely installed and commissioned.

SEQR was previously performed for the replacement of the South Pipe Bridge with a new 230 foot ± long Pipe Bridge, and a negative declaration was issued. The southwest portion of the proposed new water transmission pipeline will connect to the piping on the new Pipe Bridge.

The project is located at the existing MVWA Meter Vault to Water Treatment Plant in the Towns of Russia and Trenton, New York.

Project is an unlisted action. However, it may be partially funded through the DWSRF and, therefore, has been treated as a Type 1 action.

Oneida County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Modification to an Existing Mining Permit held by Town of Trenton will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The project involves a proposal by the applicant pto add 33.8 acres of land to an existing mining permit located within an 86.0 acre parcel on Mapledale Road between Sandridge Road and Wood Road. The mine operates as a traditional surface extraction of the Windsor series described as; fine loamy sand becoming fine sand below the soil horizons. The subsurface geology is primarily fine to medium sub-rounded sand containing fine to course sand with some gravel. The site is used exclusively by the Town of Trenton as a source of ice control sand. No mining is proposed to take place below the local water table. Excavation will be done by mechanical equipment, standard for sand mining operations and for removal of material from a bank face. Mining is proposed to remove approximately 1.5 million tons of sand and gravel over the estimated 30 to 40 year operational life of the mine. Material will be mined and loaded directly into trucks or crushed and screened as needed with portable processing equipment standard for surface mining operations. Final reclamation will restore the site to open space. Mine areas will be graded and stockpiled topsoil will be spread around the edges, and seeded with a perennial grasses and legume seed mixture. The reviewed life-of-mine increased area is 33.8 (LOM) acres giving a total LOM of 58.8 acres.

The project is located The project site is on property owned by Town of Trenton and lies approximately 1,800 feet east of Sandridge Road, 4,200 feet west of Wood Road., in the Town of Trenton, Oneida County, NY.
