Project Title: Delaware & Hudson Railroad

Project description and location: The Delaware and Hudson Railroad, from the Town of Peru, Clinton County, to the Town of Dresden, Washington County, within the Adirondack Park, proposes a five-year program to control vegetation on the ballast and shoulder within 12 feet of the centerline of the track using herbicides. The control of the vegetation is to comply with the Federal Railroad Administration requirements for worker safety, drainage, track safety inspections, minimize fire hazards and prevent obstructions to railroad workers and equipment. The treatments would occur in June and July of each year under favorable weather conditions. Within 8 feet of the centerline of the track, a truck with an infra-red detector will be used to spray the herbicide mix only if vegetation is present; the herbicide products to be used include Roundup, Oust, Escort and Accord. From 8 to 12 feet from the centerline of the track, an herbicide mix will be used to spot spray brush with a low volume radiarc or hand backpack sprayer; the herbicide products to be used include Krenite, Accord and Arsenal. No spray areas will be marked and include a 10 foot buffer to surface water at bridges and culverts and any required buffers to wetlands. The treatments will be by a DEC licensed applicator following EPA registered label instructions and use of a drift retardant. The Adirondack Park Agency's jurisdiction is limited only to those areas adjacent to wetlands along the track. The project is located in Towns of Peru & AuSable, County of Clinton, Towns of Chesterfield, Willsboro, Essex, Westport, Moriah, Crown Point, Ticonderoga, County of Essex and Towns of Putnam & Dresden County of Washington.
