ENB - Region 3 Notices 7/3/2012
Dutchess County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Tivoli North Bay Glyphosate Treatment will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by NYS DEC to extend the expiration date of its permit to treat up to 12 acres of mono-specific stands of Phragmiles australis within New York State designated Freshwater Wetland SG·3 (Tivoli North Bay), with the herbicide Rodeo (active ingredient glyphosate). NYS DEC also proposes to modify this permit to allow glyphosate treatment anywhere in Tivoli North Bay (an approximately 364 acre area) where Phragmites stands may develop. This modification would allow NYS DEC to rapidly respond to new Phragmites infestations, rather than delay treatment until the stands become well-established. The project is located at the Hudson River Research Reserve on Kidd Lane in the Town of Red Hook, New York.
