Project Review Step 5 - Critical Habitat

Currently the only designated critical habitat in New York State is for the Great Lakes breeding population of the piping plover and occurs along 17 miles of Lake Ontario shoreline in Oswego County and Jefferson County. More information on designated critical habitat for the Great Lakes breeding population of the piping plover can be found here. If the proposed project occurs within this area, add "piping plover critical habitat" to the species conclusion table. If the action area does not occur in this area, continue to Step 6. NOTE: Designated critical habitat is only applicable for projects with Federal agency involvement. No comments/analyses on critical habitat are needed for projects without Federal agency involvement.

(A). If the action area does not intersect with the critical habitat, write "no" in the critical habitat present column in the species conclusions table, and continue to Step 6.

(B). If the action area intersects with the critical habitat, write "yes" in the critical habitat present column in the species conclusion table and continue to Step 6.
