Chaumont & Guffin Bay

About This Priority Conservation Area

Chaumont Bay is a large bay on the northeastern shore of Lake Ontario, west of the village of Chaumont and east of Point Peninsula in western Jefferson County, New York. The large, sheltered bay is a popular fishing, sailing, and vacationing destination, and much of the shoreline is developed with camps, cottages, and several marinas. Within the larger Chaumont Bay area are several smaller named bays, including Three Mile Bay, Sawmill Bay, Long Bay, and Guffin Bay.

Tier List Species Recorded at This PCA

These invasive species tiers guide management priorities in New York State and are utilized by the Partnership For Regional Invasive Species Management or PRISM Network. The species categorized in each tier are dependent on species distribution, abundance, and management options available, and may vary depending on the region. The species listed below are the species categorized in the SLELO PRISM region.

Tier 1 Species

Early Detection/Prevention 

The management approach is Early Detection & Prevention. Species are not known to be in the SLELO region but are within 100 miles and an introduction pathway exists. 

Species Recorded at This PCA

No Tier 1 Species were found at this PCA at this time. 

Tier 2 Species

Eradication

Management Approach is Eradication. Species are known to be present in the SLELO region but are in low abundance with suitable treatment methods available to make eradication feasible with Priority Conservation Areas. 

Species Recorded at This PCA

No Tier 2 Species were found at this PCA at this time. 

Tier 3 Species

Containment/Exclusion

The management approach is containment/exclusion. Species are too widespread for eradication from the region, but some areas remain unaffected. Targeted management can be used to suppress the population within Priority Conservation Areas. 

Species Recorded at This PCA
  • Pale Swallow-wort

Tier 4 Species

Suppression/Local Control

The management approach is suppression/local control.Species are present and widespread throughout the region with no chance of eradication. Localized management is applied to protect high-priority resources like rare plant habitats or recreation areas. 

Species Recorded at This PCA
  • Common Buckthorn
  • Curly Leaf Pondweed
  • Eurasian Water-milfoil
  • European Frog-bit
  • Honeysuckle spp.
  • Phragmites
  • Purple Loosestrife
  • Water Chestnut
  • Zebra Mussel 

Tier 5 Species

Monitor

The management approach is to Monitor. Species may or may not be in the region but are difficult to respond to or require more knowledge of distribution, and management options. 

Species Recorded at This PCA

No Tier 5 Species were found at this PCA at this time. 

Species Recorded at this PCA that are not listed in SLELO PRISM's Tiers

  • Brittle Naiad
  • Butter n’ Eggs (Linaria vulgaris)
  • Climbing Nightshade
