Chenango County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Prescribed Fire on 50 Acres of Chenango RA # 38, Hunts Pond State Forest will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposed surface fire on 50 acres which will be conducted to consume grass and brush species in the months of March, April, or September. The 50 acre treatment area consists of 11 different grass fields (burn units), ranging in size from 1 to 25 acres. The Hunts Pond Prescribed Fire Plan has been written for the 10 year period of 2008 through 2017. Each of the burn units is scheduled to be treated on a tri-annual basis. The implementation of the treatment is largely dependent upon weather and available personnel. None of the burn units will be treated with prescribed fire more frequently than once every three years. The fire is intended to rejuvenate grass species and to reduce the amount of encroaching brush. This will improve the quality of the grassland habitat for bird species. These grass fields are being managed under the approved Chenangadilla Management Plan. The maintenance of these grass fields is important to the goal of biodiversity expressed in the plan. The project is located on Hunts Pond Road in the Town of New Berlin, New York.
