Location: Upper St Regis Landing, Town of Harrietstown, Franklin County

Comments Due: August 24, 2000

Project Title: Upper St Regis Homeowners Association

Project description: The project involves the construction of a boat wash station at St Regis Landing in the Town of Harrietstown, Franklin County. The wash station will be constructed as a roadside pull-off with railroad ties used as curbing to define the station area. The pull-off will be within the existing shoulder of the road and will not involve cutting or disturbance to any existing vegetation. The railroad ties will be placed along the edge of the shoulder and the road shoulder will be graded to drain to a small catch basin. The catch basin will discharge to wetlands located adjacent to the wash station. Water will be pumped from the lake to the wash station through a 1inch water line buried along the shoulder of the existing road. Signs at the wash station will prohibit the use of cleaning agents, describe how to use it and explain the reason for the wash station which is to prevent the spread of milfoil into Upper St Regis Lake and other connecting bodies of water.

Project Title: Fields Gravel Pit

Project description: The applicants propose to modify APA Permit 99-47, issued June 24, 1999, to allow them to operate a rock crusher in an area adjacent to a 25 acre commercial sand and gravel extraction previously authorized by the Agency (Project No. 99-47). The crusher will be used to manufacture crushed stone aggregate, an Industrial Use pursuant to 802 (24) of the Adirondack Park Agency Act. Stone to be crushed will be obtained by screening the sand and gravel to be mined from the approved sand and gravel extraction site. The crusher will consist of a single stage primary jaw crusher (Eagle, 15" x 36") with a design capacity of less than 150 tons per hour. The proposed crusher will only operate during the hours that the commercial sand and gravel extraction is authorized to operate; i.e., 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. The applicants do not propose to increase the total number of truck trips per day of material that will be removed from the site. Not more than a total of ten tandem truck loads of material will be removed daily from the site (either sand/gravel or crushed stone). Traffic into the site will consist of 5-6 delivery trucks per week in addition to the mine operator.

The proposed project will also require a modification of Permit #5-1532-00010/00003 issued July 20, 1999 by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation pursuant to ECL Article 23.
