Negative Declaration

Essex and Franklin Counties - The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation, as lead agency, has determined that the acquisition by the Open Space Conservancy, Inc.; financing through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF); and future division of the Non-Industrial portion of the NL Industries, Inc.ís "Tahawus" tract will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. This project is called the Hudson River Headwaters Project by the Open Space Conservancy, Inc. The action involves the CWSRF providing financial assistance for projects that protect, preserve and enhance water quality. In this Proposed Action, a tract of land will be acquired by the Open Space Conservancy, Inc. from NL Industries through fee simple purchase for the purpose of protecting, preserving and enhancing water quality in accordance with Sections 319 of the Federal Water Pollution and Control Act of 1978 and its amendments (also known as the Clean Water Act) and the rules and regulations of the CWSRF.

After CWSRF monies are disbursed and the Open Space Conservancy, Inc. obtains ownership of the property, the property will be subdivided in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Adirondack Park Agency and potentially the Town of Newcomb. At first, the Open Space Conservancy, Inc. will acquire the non-industrial portion of NL Industries, Inc.ís property and the property will be divided into two parcels: the Open Space Conservancy, Inc. acquisition and the NL Industries, Inc. core industrial area. The Open Space Conservancy, Inc. property will ultimately be further subdivided into :

The Masten House and approximately 50 surrounding acres will be sold to a private owner subject to conservation easement to prevent further development or subdivision. All existing structures and paved areas within this area will be excluded from CWSRF financing.

The Village of Adirondac Historic Area (estimated to be between 100 and 400 acres) will be conveyed to a not-for-profit entity specializing in historic preservation. The boundaries of this historic area will be determined by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. The historic area and all paved areas and structures within will be excluded from CWSRF financing.

The project is approximately 9,646 acres primarily in the Town of Newcomb, Essex County with minor portions within the Town of North Elba, Essex County, and the Town of Harrietstown, Franklin County, New York.
