ENB - Region 3 Notices

Negative Declaration

Orange County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed control of undesirable vegetation (Mile-A-Minute Weed) at various locations within Stewart State Reforestation area will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves applying herbicides to control and rid sites of the undesirable, introduced, non-native and invasive vegetation Mile-A-Minute Weed (Polygonum perfolatum). This action will kill the undesirable vegetation, and allow the sites to be occupied by native vegetation. The only vegetation to be controlled is the target species. Impact on public health is minimal. The areas involved are rarely visited by the public and the area will be posted so the public remains on the main roadways away from the sprayed areas. The herbicide applicator is a licensed applicator. The applicator will follow herbicide label instructions. Time and application rate will be determined by the applicator and application will be according to label instructions. Flexibility is needed to tackle areas which may yet be discovered, but a 20 acre overall limit is being placed on the 6,700 acre State Forest annually over a 5 year period.. The project is located in the Towns of Montgomery and Hamptonburg, New Windsor, and the Village of Maybrook, near South Barron Road. The bulk of the Mile-A-Minute Weed infestation is currently to the west of Barron Road, but small infestations have been found and are expected elsewhere on the property.
