Project Title: Highlands Forest, LLC

Location: 272 Highlands Road, Town of Willsboro, Essex County

Comment Period Ends: May 25, 2006

Project Description: The action involves the construction of a boat shed involving wetlands. A 3-bay, open-sided boathouse will be constructed below the mean high water mark of the outlet of Highland Forge Lake (AKA Warm Pond), a privately-owned waterbody in its entirety. The structure will be built of wood, will be approximately 14 feet tall and 16’ by 26’ in size, and will be supported by concrete footers. The boathouse will be a replacement of an identical structure in the same location which was destroyed by heavy snows in approximately 2000. Some emergent marsh wetland vegetation exists in near proximity of the boathouse, but none will be filled or removed as a result of the project. The small amount of excavation necessary for the foundation footings will be done by hand.

Project Title: Time Warner Cable

Location: NYS Route 458 in the Towns of Santa Clara and Duane, Franklin County

Comment Period Ends: May 25, 2006

Project Description: Fiber optic cable will be installed underground within the NYS Department of Transportation right-of-way of NYS Rte. 458. Cable splices will be located within flush to the ground “hand hole” structures as necessary. Within the river area of the St. Regis River the fiber optic cable will be either attached to an existing NYSDOT bridge within a conduit or by utilizing an alternate underground/water river crossing. The project involves temporary impacts to jurisdictional wetlands which are the result on utilizing a vibratory plow to install the fiber optic cable through wetlands. Wetland impacts are being avoided throughout the majority of the project by the use of directional drilling. Fiber optic cable provides digital based data and audio transmission at a consistently high level of quality and is used for voice communications as well as for data transmissions. The project is part of a larger project to install aerial fiber optic cable on existing utility poles from Nicholville to the project site and then connecting to an existing fiber optic communications system located on existing utility pole at the east end of the project site.
