Negative Declaration

Putnam County - The New York State Department Of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Bog Brook Unique Area Prescribed Burn, to be conducted on a 14-acre wetland parcel located immediately north of the pond bordering Foggintown Road sometime between mid-February and the end of March, 2007 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The primary purpose of this burn is to reduce accumulated dead biomass in the interest of maintaining suitable habitat for the population of endangered bog turtles (Clemmys muhlenbergii) that reside in the wetland. Phragmites, Lythrum and Phalaris are invasive species which make the habitat unsuitable for bog turtles by excluding native species, increasing shade, reducing the turtles’ mobility, and by causing drying of the substrate. The bog turtle prefers a semi-aquatic habitat characterized by cool, shallow, slow-moving water, deep muck and tussocks of non-woody vegetation. Burning is a quick, inexpensive and effective method of maintaining this preferred habitat. The project is located north of Foggintown Road and west of Route 22 in the towns of Southeast and Patterson in Putnam County.
