Project Title: Town of Webb

Location: Rondaxe Lake Road, Town of Webb, Herkimer County

Comment Period Ends: June 13, 2002

Project Description: The project involves the establishment of a waste disposal area in an old sand pit for disposal of exempt materials pursuant to 9 NYCRR 360-7.1(b)(I) (e.g., concrete and concrete products including embedded steel or fiberglass rebar, asphalt, pavement, brick glass, soil and rock, as well as trees stumps, yard waste and wood chips). The waste disposal area will be for use only by the Town of Webb Highway Department with up to 5,000 cubic yards of material disposed of on an annual basis. The Town estimates that the disposal area will last about 20 years. The site will be divided into four areas/cells starting at the south end of the old sand pit with each area being reclaimed before use of the next area. Access to the site will be from the Rondaxe Lake Road via Route 28 and County Route 30. Waste material will be brought to the site in trucks capable of carrying 8 to 10 cubic yards of material with an average of 3 truck trips per day or 27 cubic yards of waste material per day. The waste disposal area will be used during the hours of 7:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, from May 1st to November 30th.

Negative Declaration

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 for Certain Minor Regulated Activities In APA-Regulated Freshwater Wetlands will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) proposes to provide a simplified process for individual landowners and State, county and municipal agencies to obtain a permit, on conditions, for certain regulated minor activities occurring in APA-regulated wetlands or in adjacent areas where the activities could substantially impair regulated wetlands. This general permit, if approved, will be in effect for a five-year period. Project Locations: Individual landowner properties and certain public lands not subject to State Land Master Plan or Unit Management Plan guidelines for management use.
