Project description and location: The project site is the deep water wetland area in the southern portion of Lincoln Pond surrounded by lands classified as Moderate Intensity Use and Resource Management on the Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Plan Map. Regulated activity involving wetlands: proposed stocking of approximately 20,000 larvae of a moth (Acentria ephemerella) to augment existing herbivore populations for the purpose of demonstrating whether the height and biomass non-native Eurasian water milfoil can be decreased and enhance native plant diversity and recreational use of Lincoln Pond. Cornell University researchers will conduct pre and post treatment monitoring for three years. The larvae are proposed to be stocked in May 2000 in the southern most milfoil bed. The project is located in the Town of Elizabethtown, Essex County.

Negative Declaration

Saratoga County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency has determined that the proposed stocking of grass carp in Barney Road Pond (5 acres) and Beechwood Drive Pond (15 acres) by the Town of Clifton Park will not have a significant environmental impact. The action involves a permit to stock up to 225 sterile triploid grass carp in Barney Road Pond and up to 75 sterile triploid grass carp in Beechwood Drive Pond in 2000 for the purpose of controlling rooted aquatic vegetation. There are no endangered, threatened or special concern species in Barney Road Pond or Beechwood Drive Pond. No significant habitat areas were identified. Barney Road Pond and Beechwood Drive Pond have a history of unsuccessful aquatic vegetation control using herbicides and other means of physical control. Much of the ponds are shallow and are too weedy for swimming and boating. The Town of Clifton Park hopes to effect long-term biological control with the goal of reducing the density of aquatic vegetation by 70%. The ponds are town owned and do not have private camps or private shoreline properties. The project is located on Barney Road Pond and Beechwood Drive Ponds in the Town of Clifton Park.
