Albany and Schoharie Counties - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Albany-Schoharie Reforestation Area #2, Stands B-26 and B-28, Schoharie Reforestation Area #14, Stands A-16, A-54 and A-63-Plantation Release may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves the application of the herbicide Glyfos to reduce the competition from undesirable woody and herbaceous vegetation on four sites totaling 42 acres in the Town of Broome and the Town of Rensselaerville. 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 are non-threatened or non-endangered species. Impact on public health is minimal. Personnel will be equipped with safety equipment. Also, following label instructions for the application will minimize risk. The stands are located approximately three miles northwest of Cooksburg and approximately two miles northwest of Livingstonville in the Towns of Broome and Rensselaerville, New York
