Negative Declaration

Greene County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed amendment to the final Unit Management Plan for North-South Lake Public Campground, approved in February 1998, will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The amendment involves re-wording Objective E, which calls for the replacement of seven bathrooms and construction of a new bathroom facility. The objective states that, "No trees will be cut to accommodate construction", and the amendment replaces that statement with, "Vegetation removal will be in keeping with department policy pertaining to protection of the forest vegetation on Forest Preserve Land (LF-92-2). Construction will involve site clearing, grading, and re-seeding." This action involves a total of 1 acre of land, located in the North-South Lake Public Campground, 2 miles northeast of Haines Falls on County Route 18.

Positive Declaration

Rensselaer County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hudson Materials LLC, Private Port Facility may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the construction of a private port facility with the objective of shipping minerals, soil, sand, gravel and rock via barge to sites accessible to the Hudson River. The site will require the clearing of 16 acres of Riparian Forest and the dredging of about 4.8 acres of River as well as the filling and bulkheading of about 0.4 acres below mean high tide. Piers and docking facilities are proposed to facilitate the loading of barges by conveyor and crane, and spaces to tie up both full and empty barges. The project is located on the East Bank of the Hudson at the East Greenbush/ City of Rensselaer line. The site is accessed from the north via Riverside Avenue.
