Otsego County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Plantation Release, Otsego RA #7, Stand B-29 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of the herbicide (Glyfos) to reduce competition from undesirable woody and herbaceous vegetation on a 12 acre site in the Town of Milford. This action will remove the target vegetation on the site for a period of time sufficient to allow the planted spruce to attain enough size to dominate and fully occupy the site. The only vegetation to be removed is non-threatened or non-endangered species.
Impact on public health is minimal. Personnel will be equipped with safety equipment. Following label instruction for the application will minimize the risk. A complete description of the action is included in the Herbicide Application Plan, which is made a part of this Negative Declaration.
The project is located in the Otsego Reforestation Area #7, three miles west of Milford, Town of Milford, New York.
