Negative Declaration

Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton Counties - The New York Sate Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices to Control Invasive Species on NYS DEC Administered Lands in the Adirondack Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

This project involves a revision of the 2015 Inter-Agency Guidelines to allow for rapid response to treat occurrences of terrestrial and aquatic invasive species on forest preserve lands in the Adirondack Park. This change will allow NYS DEC to expedite review of work plans and issue permits to qualified organizations to eradicate invasive species under the following conditions: 1) the infested area is less than 0.1 acres in size for terrestrial invasive plants, and 10 acres or less in size for invasive forest pests; 2) there are no threatened, rare, or endangered species on the site; 3) there are no adverse impacts to wetlands; 4) treatment will follow approved Best Management Practices (BMP) contained in the Inter-Agency Guidelines for Implementing Best Management Practices to Control Invasive Species on NYS DEC Administered lands in the Adirondack Park, and; 5) all federal and state pesticide regulations will be followed. Work Plans are required for mechanical or chemical control of terrestrial invasive plant infestations 0.1 of an acre or less, or chemical control of invasive forest pest infestations 10.0 acres or less.

The project is located in Counties or portions of counties in the Adirondack Park (Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Herkimer, Lewis and Oneida).
