  • How Hydrilla has been managed in other New York Locations
  • Negative impacts and control costs in other states
  • Current efforts to control and manage Hydrilla in the Croton River

Background:

The aquatic invasive plant Hydrilla verticillata was discovered in the Croton River in October 2013 and later found in Croton Bay during a site survey in 2014. This survey also revealed that Hydrilla is well-established in the Croton River and Reservoir. Hydrilla grows and spreads rapidly in areas where it has become established, often resulting in considerable economic and ecological impacts. While Hydrilla remains in the Croton River and the Croton Bay, it threatens habitats in the Hudson River and its tributaries. Fortunately, the results of the survey conducted in 2015 indicate that Hydrilla has not yet spread outside of the Croton River. Come learn about current efforts by the NYS DEC to contain, control, and combat Hydrilla in Croton River habitats.

Negative Declaration

Putnam County - The Town of Southeast Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Glickenhaus Private Soccer Academy will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to construct a private soccer training facility and office building with associated parking. The soccer academy would be used by the private soccer club and not open to the public. There would be two outdoor fields, one of which would be grass (86,400 square foot) and the other artificial turf (94,500 square foot). The academy building, which would have a 40,500 square foot footprint, would contain a half-court field, locker rooms, kitchen, and offices. A drop-off location would be located at the front of the academy building and there would be parking for 65 cars. The associated office building would be 2 stories, 8,000 square foot, and have 34 parking spaces. It is proposed to serve the administration of the soccer academy. Driveways, stormwater management facilities, and an extension of the sewer/water facilities from the Fortune Ridge subdivision are also proposed. "Office" is a permitted principal use and "Recreation" is a conditional use in the OP-1 Zoning District. There are two un-named New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) classified "C" watercourses that traverse the northern edge of the property, as well as a Town of Southeast regulated wetland, and an Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) wetland. The existing watercourses are impounded by an existing dam on the western side of the property to create a pond. The proposed driveway will be constructed within the 100 foot New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP) wetland/watercourse buffer, and will include two stream crossings. The project is located n a 31.5 acre site at 291 Deans Corner Road in the OP-1 Commercial Zoning District of the Town of Southeast, New York.
