Negative Declaration

Otsego County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Plantation Release - Otsego RA #11, Stands A-10, 13 and 14 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves application of the herbicide (Glyfos) to reduce the competition from undesirable woody and herbaceous vegetation on three sites totaling 23 acres in the Town of Milford. This action will remove the target vegetation on the site for a period of time sufficient to allow the planted spruce to attain enough size to dominate and fully occupy the site. The only vegetation to be removed is non-threatened or non-endangered species. Impact on public health is minimal. Personnel will be equipped with safety equipment. Also, following label instructions for the application will minimize risk. The project is located four miles west of Milford, Town of Milford.
