Project Title: Steven and Denise Fuller/Steven E. Fuller Excavating, Inc (SEFIE)

Location: New York State Route 22 in the Town of Ausable on the west side of NYS Route 87

Comment Period Ends: November 17, 2005

Project Description: The 25% expansion of an existing commercial sand and gravel extraction. As of May 22, 1973 the disturbed area of the existing extraction is undetermined, but based on 1977 aerial photos the disturbed area was approximately 29.8 acres. To date an additional 18.3 acres have been cleared. Since 1975 the sand and gravel operation has been operating in accordance to Department of Environmental Conservation Permit #5-0922-00006-00001, Mine File #5013-30-0057. This permit was renewed by SEFIE on February 6, 2003 and will expire on May 5, 2008. The current proposal is to mine an additional seven acres during the permit term which if approved would expire on May 5, 2008. A maximum of 25,000 cubic yards per year would be removed from the site. An average of 12-14 loaded dump truck trips is projected on a daily basis. The extraction has a Life of Mine area of 7 acres to expire on May 5, 2008. The extraction will operate April 1 through November 30, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and occasionally on Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 (noon). Materials to be process include topsoil, sand and gravel. A waste disposal area consisting of tree stumps currently exist on site. The stumps will be used in the reclamation of the mine.

Positive Declaration

Warren County - The Lake George Park Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed West Brook Stormwater Facility at the Former Gaslight Village/Charlie's Saloon Property may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves constructing a stormwater management facility and wetland restoration project at the former Gaslight Village/Charlie's Saloon property along West Brook that would significantly reduce the impact of contaminants and sediments from the urbanized area of the Lake George Park on the water quality of Lake George consistent with the purposes of Article 43 of the regulations and of the Stormwater Planning Assistance Program.

Project Description: Major proposed management actions in the UMP/FEIS include: Improving trail information and recreational opportunities for people with mobility impairments, including the development of accessible camping, one short CP-3 road and picnic sites; construction of new parking areas and foot trails including a portion of the Northville-Lake Placid Trail off public highways onto Forest Preserve land; constructing lean-tos at Fawn Lake, Fall Stream, and Fall Lake, preservation of area fire- towers and observer cabin on Pillsbury Mountain and facilitation of educational efforts at the summits of Snowy and Pillsbury mountains; development/designation of waterway access sites on Indian Lake, Mason Lake, Gilman Lake, Jessup River and Oxbow Lake; adopting various measures to manage public use at the Gilman Lake Waterway Access Site, including motorboat horsepower restrictions; adopting various measures to manage public use within 500 feet of the Forest Preserve shoreline of Indian Lake, including special regulations; and facilitating snowmobile access between local communities.

Possible adverse impacts from implementation of the UMP/FEIS may include temporary disturbance to wetland areas including vegetation, increased siltation to streams and stream bottom disturbance, minor temporary erosion, increased hiking and snowmobiling traffic in certain areas, and minor noise impacts during the construction of new facilities.
