Chenango, Delaware, Lewis, Oneida, Onondoga, Orange and Otsego Counties - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Control of Japanese Knotweed on Various Reforestation Stands will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves herbicide applications to reduce undesirable understory vegetation (Japanese Knotweed) to allow the natural regeneration of desired species such as red oak, white oak, chestnut oak, sugar maple, and red maple. The action is to take place between July 15 - September 30, over a two year period on multiple sites, ranging in size from 0.01 - 5.6 acres, but totaling less than 25 acres. Impact on public health is minimal. Personnel will be equipped with safety equipment. The application will follow label instructions minimizing risk to both the applicant and the environment.

Delaware, Sullivan, Greene, Schoharie, Ulster, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, And Westchester Counties - The New York City Department of Environmental Protection, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Amendments To The Rules For The Recreational Use Of Water Supply Lands And Waters will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves amending Title 15, Chapter 16 of the Rules of the City of New York (RCNY), the existing rules governing the recreational use of over 112,000 acres of New York City water supply lands and waters (Existing Rules). The amended rules (Proposed Rules) were drafted with the purpose of allowing recreational uses on certain City-owned lands within the watershed in a manner that would be consistent with the recreational uses permitted on New York State-owned recreational lands managed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The project would govern permissible recreational uses of all water supply lands and waters owned by the City of New York. The regulated community would be all persons accessing City-owned water supply lands, lakes, and reservoirs located in Delaware, Sullivan, Greene, Schoharie, Ulster, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, and Westchester counties, for purposes of recreation.
