Negative Declaration

DEC Regions: 5 and 6

Counties: Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton and Oneida

Lead Agency: NYS DEC

Project Title: Herbicide Treatment of Invasive Common Reed Grass (Phragmites australis) on DEC Administered Lands within the Adirondack Park

Contact Person: Peter J. Frank

Address: NYS DEC
Division of Lands & Forests
625 Broadway
Albany, NY 12233

Phone Number: (518) 473-9518

Project Location: Towns of Dannemora, North Elba, Keene, Elizabethtown, Harrietstown, Brighton, Duane, Caroga, Stratford, Arietta and Forestport

Project Description: The proposed action is to apply glyphosate based herbicide to invasive reed grass (Phragmites australis) on approximately seven acres in accordance with best management practices identified in the "Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices to Control Invasive Species on DEC Administered Lands of the Adirondack Park." Phragmites is a perennial grass that thrives in wetland areas and can grow up to 15 feet in height. It is capable of vigorous vegetative reproduction often forming dense stands that exclude other wetland vegetation and alters community structure. Application will be either by foliar spray, which will be used to treat the majority of plants, or by stem injection. Herbicide treatment is effective in suppressing, or locally eradicating small to medium sized infestations of common reed.


DEC Regions: 5 and 6

Counties: Essex, Lewis and Saratoga

Lead Agency: NYS DEC

Project Title: Herbicide Treatment of Invasive Knotweed Species (Reynoutria spp.) on DEC Administered Lands within the Adirondack Park

Contact Person: Peter J. Frank

Address: NYS DEC
Division of Lands & Forests
625 Broadway
Albany, NY 12233

Phone Number: (518) 473-9518

Project Location: Towns of Wilmington, Newcomb, Greig and Corinth

Project Description: The proposed action is to apply glyphosate and/or imazapyr based herbicide to Knotweed (Reynoutria spp.) on approximately .15 acres in accordance with best management practices identified in the "Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices to Control Invasive Species on DEC Administered Lands of the Adirondack Park." Knotweed is a herbaceous perennial which forms dense clumps 3-10 feet in height. It spreads rapidly forming dense thickets that can alter natural ecosystems. Application will be either by foliar spray or by stem injection. Herbicide treatment is effective in suppressing, or locally eradicating early detection to medium sized infestation of Knotweed species.
