Application ID: 6-9906-00006/00062
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Project is Located: Antwerp, Multiple Counties
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to add the herbicide Oust to be used in a post Vegetative Management Plan that currently authorizes the use of the herbicide Accord.  Herbicides are used to control unwanted vegetation in areas being cleared of unexploded ordnance for safety purposes, and on  firing ranges where vegetation would interfere with target site attainment.  While these herbicides are approved for use in New York State, a permit is required for application in, or within 100 of state regulated freshwater wetlands.  The plan restricts herbicide application to the buffer area of wetlands and not in-wetland application.
