Tree Removal for the Bog River Dam Rehabilitation Project and Parking Areas

The action involves the cutting and removal of 655 trees three inches or larger in diameter at breast height (DBH) for maintenance and new construction in the vicinity of the Bog River Dam, also known as Low's Lower Dam. The dam will receive maintenance which will replace deteriorated masonry and gate hardware, repair the penstock, remove a former powerhouse structure and anchor the dam to the bedrock/earth below to bring it up to current dam safety standards. Additionally, existing parking areas along the Lower Dam Road will be expanded and improved, and a new parking area adjacent to the road will be constructed. The existing parking area near the dam will also be upgraded to meet ADA/accessible parking standards.

This project will be completed through an approved work plan and is identified in the approved 2002 Bog River Unit Management Plan. Tree cutting will be in compliance with Lands and Forests Policy # 91-2 on Cutting, Removal or Destruction of Trees and Other Vegetation on Forest Preserve Lands.

The project is located in the Eastern Five Ponds Access Primitive Area, Round Lake Wilderness Area in the Town of Piercefield, St. Lawrence County, New York.
