Nassau Safety Advisory: Nassau Lake Algae Bloom
September 24, 2016

Residents of the Town of Nassau and Village of Nassau please take note. This advisory covers Nassau Lake thru the Valatie Kill from the Nassau Lake Dam to the Town line south of Routes 9/20. This advisor is based on the following results from the NYSDEC.


Sampling results from samples collected by DEC staff on Nassau Lake and downstream in Valatie Kill in Rensselaer County on 9/21 confirmed the presence of a HAB, based on blue green chlorophyll a levels of 63,244 (lake) and 706 μg/l (kill) (above the DEC HAB thresh...old of 25-30 μg/l) and a microscopic analysis of Dense Aphanizomenon, Woronichinia, Microcystis, all cyanobacteria taxa capable of producing toxins.

 

The bloom is very dense in the lake, particularly on the east side and the southern end near the damn. Scums were visible in the Kill up to ¼ mile downstream. Algal material can be seen going over the spill way.

The toxin results are not yet available, but will be forwarded upon receipt if they indicate an elevated risk.

As a precautionary measure, humans and pets should avoid any algae blooms and areas of the advisory until this issue passes.

The Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company has filed updated draft Resource Report for the Northeast Energy Direct Project. By notice issued October 2, 2014, the Commission approved Tennessee's request to use the pre-filing procedures for the Project.

As part of the Commission's pre-filing process, Tennessee submitted draft Resource Report 1 on November 5, 2014.  Draft Resource Report 1 reflects the information available as of the date of the filing regarding the proposed Project facilities and anticipated land requirements, construction procedures, and permitting/clearance requirements for the Project.

Tennessee notes that its development of the resource reports for the Project is an ongoing process, and as part of this process, Tennessee has submitted an amended version of Resource Report 1, which provides details about Tennessee's plan to adopt both the New York Powerline Alternative and the New Hampshire Powerline Alternative.  These alternatives will utilize existing utility corridors but WILL ADD another corridor in the Town of Nassau.

Tennessee is notifying elected officials, federal and state regulatory agencies, and landowners in proximity to the proposed route of its decision.  Please find this revised report detailing the adopted alternatives, including a project map, here.

Nassau Tree Competition Announced!
November 15, 2012

The Town of Nassau’s Farm and Agriculture Preservation Committee is pleased to announce a competition to identify the largest and oldest trees in the Town of Nassau.  This friendly competition will foster the competitiveness of residents and recognize the value of the rural character and beauty of the Town of Nassau.

 

Nassau is home to numerous massive trees from several species.  Many of these historic trees are along farm properties and in wind breaks which help to prevent erosion and delineate fields located throughout the Town.  They also protect fields from wind damage and encourage wildlife.  These large trees and their forested areas surrounding Nassau’s farms also encourage bird populations which eat field insect pests.

 

This competition will help to recognize the value of these trees and to honor the preservation of our rural open space.

 

The Farm and Ag Committee is also inviting children in area school districts to participate in the competition.  The fall and winter months provide an excellent opportunity for residents to get outdoors and appreciate all the beauty of Nassau.  It also makes it easier to spot large trees. 

 

This tree competition will begin November 15 and continue to May 6, 2013.  A copy of the identification form for this effort may be found on the Town’s website at www.townofnassau.org.  Please remember to ask permission of the property owner if a tree you are interested in is not located on your property.

 

The Town of Nassau’s Farm and Agriculture Preservation Committee was created to act as a liaison between the agriculture community and the Town.

 

New members and program suggests for the Committee are always welcome.  You may contact the Committee at farms@townofnassau.org.

Small Farm Grants Available
October 31, 2012

News From The Small Farms Program At Cornell: Apply Now for Sustainable Agriculture Grants

Are you a farmer with a new idea you would like to test using a field trial, on-farm demonstration, or other technique? Are you an educator looking to conduct research with farmers as active cooperators? Are you a community member aiming to connect sustainable farming with community revitalization?  If you answered “YES” to any of the above, a SARE grant might be the right fit for you. Funding is available to help you test your ideas in the way of Farmer Grants, Partnership Grants, and Sustainable Community Grants from Northeast SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education). All grants are capped at $15,000. Details and deadlines are provided below. For assistance, contact NY SARE Coordinator Violet Stone at (607) 255-9227 or vws7@cornell.edu; or Northeast SARE Coordinator Carol Delaney at Carol.Delaney@uvm.edu or 802-229-2096

 

Farmer Grants

Farmer Grants let commercial producers explore new ideas in production or marketing. Reviewers look for innovation, potential for improved sustainability and results that will be useful to other farmers. Projects should be technically sound and explore ways to boost profits, improve farm stewardship, or have a positive impact on the

environment or the farm community.  To qualify, you must be a farm business owner or manager in the Northeast SARE region. It is not necessary that you farm full time, but the primary activity of your farm must be to produce and sell agricultural products.  There is a limit of one application per farm per year. Grant funds can be used to pay for your time and time that your employees work directly on the project, materials specific to the project, project-related services like testing and consulting, project-related travel, outreach expenses, equipment rental, and other direct costs. The deadline to apply is November 27th. For more information, visit http://www.nesare.org/Grants/Get-a-Grant/Farmer-Grant

 

Partnership Grants

Partnership Grants allow agricultural service providers to explore topics in sustainable production and marketing in cooperation with client farmers. The goal is to build knowledge farmers can use, encourage the understanding and widespread use of sustainable techniques, and strengthen working partnerships between farmers and  farm service providers.  Projects must take place on farms or directly involve farm businesses. Reviewers look for well-designed inquiries into how agriculture can enhance the environment, improve the quality of life, or be made more profitable through good stewardship.  You must be engaged in agricultural research or outreach in an organization like Cooperative Extension, NRCS, a state department of agriculture, a college or university, an agricultural nonprofit, or a commercial agricultural consulting business. Funds can be used to pay for your time and time that your partnering farmers spend on the project, materials specific to the project, project related services like soil testing and lab fees, project-related travel, outreach expenses, equipment rental, and other direct costs. The deadline to apply is November 1st. For more information, visit http://www.nesare.org/Grants/Get-a-Grant/Partnership-Grant

 

Sustainable Community Grants

Sustainable Community Grants focus on sustainable agriculture as it affects community development, and successful proposals enhance the economic, social, and environmental position of farms and farmers.  Reviewers are looking for innovative projects that clearly benefit farmers and were planned in coordination with them; they also want to see efforts that others can replicate and that are likely to bring about durable and positive institutional change.  Proposals must address certain key issues such as finance, marketing, land use, water use, enterprise development, value-added activities, or labor. Sustainable Community Grants are primarily for agriculturally oriented agencies and nonprofits (Cooperative Extension, NRCS, state departments of agriculture, or comparable entities), and community development groups with the capacity and experience to foster sustainable agriculture enterprise development.  Grant funds can be used to pay for personnel costs, mileage, materials and supplies specific to the project, outreach, per-diem or consultant costs, and project-specific long distance, fax, and conference calls. Grant funds can also be used to cover meeting expenses and printing, postage, or outreach costs associated with hosting an event or field day. Any equipment costs must be project-specific; requests for general office equipment costs are not allowable. The deadline to apply is November 15th. For more information, visit http://www.nesare.org/Grants/Get-a-Grant/Sustainable-Community-Grant

Town Emblem approved
September 28, 2012
After a couple of years of development, with numerous proposals presented, and many people assisting, the official emblem for the Town of Nassau was unanimously approved at the Town Board meeting of September 18, 2012.  This new emblem communicates the history and service of the community while looking to the future.

 

The emblem, of a free-floating style, was jointly designed by Keith Prior and Martha Costello. The emblem depicts the eagle for freedom and is also symbolic of the service and sacrifice of Nassau’s men and women in the military during our 206 year history.  In one talon the eagle holds wheat to represent the past and present agricultural activity in the town, along with a tin dinner horn used to summon the Nassau’s “Calico Indians” in the Anti-Rent War rebellions of mid-eighteenth century.   The historic Anti-Rent flag portrayed in the eagle’s other talon was carried by Nassau’s Anti-Renters at their rallies in their fight against oppression and for modern rights as we know them.  The millstone represents the early mill industry that was prevalent throughout the entire town and led to the early development of our community.

 

To learn more about the history of Nassau, we encourage you to explore the Town’s website.  We thank the Historic Preservation Committee, the artists, and contributors, that helped develop this emblem for the community.  It is a wonderful symbol, already put to use, that helps us recognize and honor our past while preparing for a great future.
