Negative Declaration

Clinton, Herkimer, Lewis, Oneida and St. Lawrence Counties - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adirondack Aquatic Invasive Species Spread Prevention Program 2018-2022 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The NYS DEC boat decontamination program is consistent with the 2016 Part 576 regulations, Aquatic Invasive Species Spread Prevention, and will help reduce the spread of aquatic invasive species to public water bodies via watercraft and associated equipment. The NYS DEC proposes to install boat decontamination stations (unit, storage shed, and other equipment) at boat launches and roadside locations to offer high pressure hot water washes for watercraft that have not passed inspection and that are leaving waterbodies infested with small-bodied aquatic invasive species such as spiny waterflea. Decontamination stations will be temporarily placed at launches and active from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day weekend and, in some cases, Columbus Day. Two types of decontamination stations will be used: ECOS 7000 unit and the Landa MHC4-30324E unit. The ECOS unit has a containment pad for runoff that contains, collects, and recycles wash water. Used water will be disposed off site at appropriate campground disposal locations every several weeks. The Landa MHC unit requires the construction of an infiltration pad. Water freely drains off boats and trailers through gravel and construction cloth and dissipates into the soil without ponding or causing erosion. Some tree and/or brush removal may be necessary to allow space for installation of stations, other small structures or equipment as needed. This is a five year program beginning in May of 2018 and continuing until October 2022 with implementation on a yearly basis.

The project is located within and along the border of the Adirondack Park in New York State.
