Pennsylvania Wetland Replacement Project; Lake Naomi Project

[26 Pa.B. 5054]

   D1-1. Wetland Restoration Project. The Division of Wetlands Protection, in cooperation with the Lake Naomi Club, U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Ducks Unlimited, proposes to create 7.5 acres of wetland at the Lake Naomi Club, approximately 2,000 feet north of the intersection of Burnt Shanty Road and Crestview Lane, (Pocono Pines, PA Quadrangle, N:  22 inches; W:  14.6 inches) in Tobyhanna Township, Monroe County.

   The goal of the Lake Naomi project is to restore a wetland mosaic that provides wildlife habitat. Restoration in an abandoned sand and gravel mine will eliminate a blight on the landscape of the Lake Naomi Club while creating 7.5 acres of wetland in the Middle Delaware Subbasin to offset approximately 1 acre of impact. Upon completion, approximately 40% of the site will have standing water between 4 and 18 inches in depth. On 20% of the site, the water will be greater than 18 inches in depth, 20% of the site will have water less than 4 inches in depth, and 20% of the site will be wetland dominated by winterberry. Winterberry will provide food for winter birds, and be the dominant species in the transition from shallow water areas to the adjacent upland dominated by hemlocks. The plan also calls for islands within the wetland to provide resting and nesting areas. The mosaic of open water and vegetated shallows comprised of button bush, wild celery and duck potatoes should attract a variety of water fowl, song birds and other species indigenous to the Pocono plateau, including black bear and snowshoe hare.
