Project Title: WJS Sand Pit

Location: NYS Route 30, Town of Tupper Lake, Franklin County

Comment Period Ends: August 17, 2006

Project Description: The project is the mining of about 81,000 cubic yards of sand from an existing sand pit located on the east side of NYS Route 30, in the Town of Tupper Lake about 3,000 feet south of Moody Bridge. The applicant proposes to remove the sand from the pit primarily for use in the Town of Tupper Lake Sewer District 23 project and the proposed reconstruction of Route 30 in the immediate vicinity of the project site. The proposed life of mine is five years, but it is estimated that most of the sand will be removed by the end of 2008 (20,000± cubic yards of sand in 2006 and 60,000± cubic yards in 2007 and 2008). The applicant proposes that the mine will operate Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. No crushing or screening operations are proposed to occur at the project site. An existing dirt road provides access to the project site.

Washington County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that proposed sea lamprey control treatment of the Poultney River will not have a significant, adverse environmental impact. The action involves control of the abundance of sea lamprey in the Poultney River by application of chemical lampricides. It is part of a broader lake-wide, integrated sea lamprey control program for Lake Champlain, and continues, with minor modifications, stream and delta treatments first initiated in 1990 pursuant to a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) titled "Use of Chemical Lampricides in a Temporary Program of Sea Lamprey Control in Lake Champlain with an Assessment of Effects on Certain Fish Populations and Sportfisheries" and as described in its Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS) titled "A long-term program of sea lamprey control in Lake Champlain", published in 2001 pursuant to NEPA. No significant adverse impacts were identified during the eight-year program covered by the FEIS. Fundamental mitigation strategies established in the FEIS and FSEIS will be continued. In the Poultney River, these mitigation strategies include utilizing reduced lampricide concentrations demonstrably below levels shown to negatively affect invertebrate and fish species of potential concern, including the Threatened eastern sand darter. Treatments on other tributaries were addressed in a previous environmental assessment whose SEQR notice was published in 2002. This environmental review addresses the potential for Poultney River-specific tributary treatments in either spring or fall, as well as the use of Bayluscide in combination with TFM to reduce overall pesticide usage in the Poultney River. As indicated in the FSEIS, the Poultney River would be treated with lampricides beginning in 2007 at the earliest and only if wounding rate objectives on walleye or salmonids in Lake Champlain are not achieved, and if viable alternatives to lampricides are not available.
