ENB - Region 7 Notices 5/20/2009

Negative Declaration

Cayuga County - The Village of Meridan Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Meridan Comprehensive Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a comprehensive plan pursuant to Village Law Section 7-722.

Chenango County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Chenango RA #18, Stand C-44.1 and C-44.4 Herbicide Application will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves herbicide application to reduce the abundance of fern and interfering woody vegetation to a level that would allow the natural regeneration of desired tree species. The action is to take place on 21 acres of mixed hardwood forest. The herbicide application seeks to control interfering vegetation consisting of hay-scented fern, New York fern, striped maple, hophornbeam and beech. The dominance of this vegetation in the forest understory prevents adequate regeneration of desirable tree species from becoming established. Removal of the interfering vegetation will facilitate the natural regeneration of sugar maple, white ash, black cherry and red maple, creating a healthy diverse natural forest. The application method used will be by backpack sprayer, applying herbicide only to the target species within the application area. The project is located on the Chenango Reforestation Area #18, Lincklaen State Forest, Stands C-44.1 and C- 44.4 between the Hyer Road and the Neal Road, in the Town of Lincklaen, New York.

Chenango County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Chenango RA #11,Stand A-30, Site Preparation will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves herbicide application to reduce the number of American beech saplings in the forest understory as well as reduce the amount of hay-scented fern and New York fern. The objective is to create favorable growing conditions for desired northern hardwood tree species. The dominance of this vegetation in the forest understory prevents adequate regeneration of desirable tree species from becoming established. The action is to take place on 17 acres, presently occupied by a mature stand of black cherry, white ash, sugar maple, red oak, and red maple trees. The application method used will be by backpack sprayer, applying herbicide only to the target species within the application area.
