Comment Period Ends: October 4, 2001

Project Description: The action involves a new waste disposal site for the purpose of landspreading up to 500,000 gallons of septage (i.e., contents of household septic tanks) annually on a 15.8 acre portion of the project site. Septage will be incorporated into the soil as it is spread by subsurface injection. Between 1,920 and 4,000 gallons of septage, hauled by one 2,500 gallon capacity collection vehicle, are to be landspread per day. In addition, two lined lagoons with a capacity of 148,000 gallons will be used to store septage when landspreading is not possible (e.g., snow cover conditions and rainfall events) for subsequent on-site landspreading when conditions permit it. The project will operate year-round, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Region 6 of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is considering issuance of General Permits No. 01-06-01 for the construction of stone filled timber crib docks, No. 01- 06 -02 for break wall construction and No. 01 -06 -03 for boathouse construction. These permits will be restricted to use on the Fulton Chain of Lakes, Town of Webb, Herkimer County.

This improved efficiency will be accomplished without compromising the Environmental values or the needs of the general public.

Use of the permits will require the applicant to determine if their project conforms to the guidance set forth in the permit application. If applicable, the applicant will fill out the application, attach a location map and drawings detailing the project. The application will be reviewed by an Environmental Analyst, signed by a Permit Administrator and returned to the applicant as a valid permit.

Negative Declaration

Hamilton County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cedar River Bridge will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves issuing a permit pursuant to the NYS Wild, Scenic and Recreational River System Act for a multiple-use recreational trail bridge to be constructed over the Cedar River in the Blue Mountain Wild Forest. The bridge project was included in the unit management plan for the Blue Mountain Wild Forest, which was adopted in May 1995. However, the SEQRA assessment for the UMP did not address site-specific impacts for the bridge.

The proposed multiple use recreational trail bridge will span a segment of the Cedar River designated "recreational" under the NYS Wild, Scenic and Recreational River System Act. The bridge will link the hamlet of Indian Lake with the trail system of the Blue Mountain Wild Forest. It will provide direct access to an exiting trail, whose main purpose is snowmobiling, which leads toward the hamlet of Blue Mountain Lake. Eventually, the trail may be extended to connect with the hamlet of Long Lake. The proposed bridge will eliminate the need for hazardous ice crossings by snowmobilers, and will afford access to a variety of warm-season recreational activities, especially bicycling and hiking. As required by Commissioner’s Delegation Memorandum #84-06, this project requires the removal of 96 trees over 3 inches in diameter at breast height. The affected project area is approximately one acre. The project is located in the Town of Indian Lake.
