Negative Declaration

Franklin County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Fisheries Reclamation of Long Pond (SC-170a) and adjacent Unnamed Pond (SC-P5081) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of Rotenone to Long Pond and the hydrologically connected unnamed pond (SC-P5081) at a concentration of 1.0 ppm (parts per million) to remove: nonnative golden shiners, native but widely introduced (NBWI) brown bullhead, NBWI white sucker, NBWI pumpkinseed and the remnant population of brook trout. The pond will be restocked with brook trout following the reclamation. Long Pond has the physical and water chemistry characteristics to be an excellent brook trout water. The pond is a seepage water and does not have an outlet, precluding non desirable species from re-establishing in this water. The desire to reclaim this water and manage it as an "Adirondack Brook Trout Water" is included in the draft Debar Mountain Complex Unit Management Plan (includes Debar Mountain Wild Forest). The project is located in the Debar Mountain Wild Forest in the Town of Waverly, New York.
