Project Title: Ellsworth Marina

Location: NYS Route 9L & County Route 7, Town of Queensbury, Warren County

Comment Period Ends: May 18, 2006

Project Description: The project involves a proposal for additional/maintenance dredging of the areas between the existing docks at the Ellsworth Marina. The Agency previously approved a one-time dredging of the areas between the docks pursuant to Agency Permit 99-266 issued July 3, 2000. That dredging operation was undertaken removing 800 cubic yards of material. It is now estimated that about 48 cubic yards of additional material will have to be removed to achieve the originally approved average water depth of 2 feet at the existing docks. The applicant also proposes that additional dredging be allowed over a ten year period to maintain the proposed average water depth of two feet at the docks. A turbidity curtain will be used to contain sediments during the dredging operation which will occur in either the Spring or the Fall when there are no boats at the docks. Dredged materials will be trucked to an existing dewatering and disposal area at the southern end of the site. A silt fence will be installed on the down slope side of the dewatering and disposal area as an erosion control measure. A two foot buffer area will be maintained along the shoreline where no dredging will occur. The project site is a 46.92 acre parcel located on the south side of NYS Route 9L . It is designated Town of Queensbury Tax Map No's. 252-1-65 & 76.1.

Project Description: The action involves the NYS DEC developing a Unit Management Plan (UMP) for the Silver Lake Wilderness Area, and as the lead agency, determining that the proposed UMP will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

Section 816 of the Adirondack Park Agency Act (Executive Law) requires the Department of Environmental Conservation to develop, in consultation with the Adirondack Park Agency, individual unit management plans for each unit under its jurisdiction classified in the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan. Proposed management actions include removing several non-conforming structures and uses; a reroute of the southern portion of the Northville-Lake Placid Trail (NPT); designation of two primitive roadside campsites, one of which will be made accessible for people with disabilities; monitoring public use, fish and wildlife populations, and environmental impacts; pond reclamation, stocking, and liming; public education; maintenance of existing facilities; the relocation of one parking area within 500 feet of the point where West River Road is closed, the closure of the Godfrey Road and associated parking area and possible construction of foot bridges.
