Application ID:

8-4434-00160/00007

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 3 Aquatic Pesticides
Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands

Project is Located:

Tyrone, Schuyler County

Project Description:

This is a combined Notice of Complete Application for the proposed aquatic herbicide treatments in Waneta and Lamoke Lakes for the control of the invasive plant Eurasian watermilfoil. Previous treatments were done in 2008, 2009 & 2011 as part of overall treatment plan for control of milfoil. The two permit applications, one for each lake, are Waneta Lake with tracking application number 8-9908-00171/00008 and Lamoka Lake with the tracking application number 8-4434-00160/00007. The herbicide proposed for use is the liquid form of the active ingredient triclopyr, trademarked and sold as Renovate® 3, and the granular/flake form sold as Renoate® OTF. In Waneta Lake a total of 34.6 acres in seven near shore, littoral zone locations will be treated where severe nuisance concentrations of milfoil have been identified. Application rates will range between 2.25 and 2.5 ppm and will be monitored every three weeks and until the triclopyr concentration drops to approximately 1 ppb. In Lamoka Lake, treatment will be made on a total of 44.4 acres which includes 12.4 acres of littoral zone and shallow open water on Lamoka Lake and 32 acres on Mill Pond. Application will be at a rate of 2.5 ppm for Renovate OTF on Lamoka Lake and 1.5 ppm for Renovate 3 on Mill Pond.

Past experience with drought conditions in 2012 and subsequent difficulty with lakes returning to normal levels prompted a change in method to contain treated water. No drawdown of lake water is proposed for 2013. Stop logs will be placed across the Bradford Dam spillway so that lake water will be contained up to elevation of 1099.0, and then stoplogs will be removed approximately one month after the treatment of Lamoka Lake. Water monitoring will be done and aquatic plant surveys will be conducted after treatment to establish and document the effectiveness of the treatment. Treatments are tentatively scheduled for May 2013 in both lakes. Copies of the application documents, maps and project plans are available for review at the town halls in the Towns of Tyrone, Wayne and Bradford, as well as the NYSDEC Region 8 office in Avon, NY.
