Negative Declaration

Counties - All or portions of the following within the Adirondack Park "Blue Line": St.Lawrence, Essex, Oneida, Lewis, Clinton, Franklin, Herkimer, Hamilton, Warren, Saratoga, Washington, and Fulton - The Adirondack Park Agency, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed General Permit and Certification for the Removal or Modification of Recent Beaver Dams by Individual Landowners will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. Comment period ends October 11, 2001. The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) proposes to issue a general permit to individual landowners for certain regulated activities in ECL Article 24 jurisdictional wetlands relating to the removal of recently constructed beaver dams and debris on their property within the Adirondack Park. This general permit will be in effect for a three-year period.

Prior to removal of any beaver dam or debris, individual landowners must either:

If seeking DEC permit approval to remove or modify beaver dams in regulated wetlands within the Adirondack Park under a) above, each landowner shall complete a "Complaint Record and Permit Form" with the DEC Regional Wildlife Offices in DEC Region 5 or 6, as appropriate. DEC staff will review the application, conduct a site visit if determined by DEC staff to be necessary, and determine if the proposed project meets the terms and conditions of this general permit. If approvable, DEC Regional Wildlife staff will sign and issue a combined ECL Article 11, 15 and 24 permit, as appropriate, to the applicant. The applicant may not begin removal of the beaver dam or debris until the DEC signed permit has been received.

DEC staff will direct individual landowners to apply to the APA for individual ECL Article 24 Permits when DEC staff determine that the beaver dam is not recently constructed.

If seeking APA permit approval under b) above, each individual landowner shall submit a completed and signed "Application and General Permit Certification for the Removal or Modification of Recent Beaver Dams or Debris" to the Director of Regulatory Programs, New York State Adirondack Park Agency." Agency staff will review the application for completeness, conduct a site visit if determined by APA staff to be necessary, and determine if the proposed project meets the terms and conditions of this general permit. If approvable, an authorized APA representative will sign the "Application and General Permit Certification" and return it to the applicant. The applicant may not begin removal of the beaver dam or debris until the Agency signed permit has been received and an ECL Article 11 permit (and ECL Article 15 permit if required) has been obtained from DEC.

This general permit will allow landowners, as directed by authorized APA and/or DEC staff, to modify or completely remove recent beaver dams and debris causing obstructions to normal water flow.

Impoundments resulting from recently constructed beaver dams are usually devoid of submergent or floating-leaved plants. The beaver dam is considered long established, that is not recent, if there is live woody vegetation growing on the dam and/or there exists well-developed emergent or sub-emergent wetland vegetation within and resulting from the impoundment behind the dam. In such cases, an individual ECL Article 24 permit is required from the Agency.
