Project Description: The action involves mowing, brush cutting, tree removals and herbicide application along The Remsen to the Lake Placid Travel Corridor in order to maintain vegetation control for current and future rail service and trail development and maintenance, involving wetlands and state lands under the jurisdiction of NYS DOT. Vegetation management of the corridor was previously approved by the Agency in permits 98-108 and 98-108R. Minor changes to the vegetation management of the corridor are proposed as part of this project. No new herbicides are proposed to be used for vegetation management other than those previously approved, at this time. All herbicides will be applied in strict compliance with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) labels. The vegetation management plan is subject to the Remsen/Lake Placid Travel Corridor Final Management Plan. NYS DOT and NYS DEC have proposed an amendment to the plan for vegetative management of the corridor in conjunction with this project. The Agency is reviewing concurrently the proposed vegetation management amendment to the Travel Corridor Final Management Plan for compliance with the State Land Master Plan and will make a determination separate from this project.
