Document Description
Conduct percolation tests on the North Shore of Millerton Lake State Recreation Area to determine percolation/leaching capabilities of the soil in order to develop new septic systems and leach fields at the two existing mobile home sites and two possible (depends on the outcome of the tests) future mobile home sites. Work will excavate 5- 12" X 36" holes using the State Park tractor to avoid the risk of introducing non-native invasive plant species and all test holes will be backfilled immediately after testing is complete. A qualified State Park Archeologist will be present and monitoring during this procedure. If anything of cultural significance is found work will halt and the appropriate procedures will be conducted.
