Comment Period Ends: May 23, 2002

Project Description: The project consists of the construction of small wooden bridges which will span streams and wetlands. Three of the bridges are subject to APA review jurisdiction. The bridges will allow crossing of wet areas by ATVs and off-road motorcycles via existing trails. The bridges will eliminate driving through the wetlands and streams, thus reducing impacts. Capital Area Trail Riders Association (CATRA) is a private membership organization established in 1986 consisting of 120± members who utilize the property year-round for off-road motorcycle and ATV trailriding. CATRA hosts one regional race each year; all other site use is restricted to members and guests only.

Negative Declaration

Clinton County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Little Ausable sea lamprey barrier dam will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves construction of a low-head sea lamprey barrier dam to deny nuisance, non-native sea lamprey access to their spawning habitat in the Little Ausable River. Sea lamprey predation was identified as a major factor limiting the success of a salmonid stocking and restoration program in Lake Champlain. As a result, an experimental program of sea lamprey control on Lake Champlain was begun in 1990. Based on the experimental program’s success, a long-term program of sea lamprey control was adopted in 2001. This proposed barrier dam project contributes to a comprehensive, coordinated approach to restoring aquatic habitat by integrating a non-chemical methodology into long-term efforts to control sea lamprey in Lake Champlain. While chemical lampricides will be a major part of the control effort in the foreseeable future, integration of nonchemical methodologies where feasible is desirable. The project is located approximately one mile upstream from the mouth of the Little Ausable River off Bear Swamp Road, Town of Peru.

Positive Declaration and Public Scoping Meeting

Saratoga County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Nelson Pompa, Coy Road Quarry may have a significant adverse environmental impact and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A meeting will be held on May 22, 2002 from 7:00 PM to conclusion, at the Town of Greenfield Community Center, 25 Wilton Road, Greenfield Center, NY 12883. The applicant proposes to begin quarrying of gniess/quartzite/diabase on 237.7 acres of an 1800 acre parcel. An on-site processing facility (crushing and screening) will produce material that will be transported off-site. Pompa estimates the reserves to be mined at the site exceed 60 million tons. The applicant represents that annually the proposed project would affect 2 acres of land and 200,000 tons of material would be excavated, processed and removed from the site by trucks. As a reclamation objective, the applicant proposes to create an area suitable for wildlife and open space. The anticipated life of the project exceeds 100 years. The proposed quarry is located in the Town of Greenfield, 4,000 feet north of the existing Pompa Brothers Inc. sand and gravel mine on Coy Road. The site is located east of Lake Desolation Road, north of Coy Road, west of Ridge Road and south of vacant land purported to be owned by Finch Pruyn and Company.
