Project Location: Town of Richford approximately 2 1/2 miles east of the hamlet of Richford. The herbicide area is located approximately 1/2 mile north of Tubbs Hill Road.

Project Description: The action involves targeted application of herbicides Glyphosate (Accord XRT or Accord SP) and Garlon 4 to control and rid the site of undesirable interfering understory and midstory vegetation to control American beech saplings/poles - and small patches of hayscented/New York fern. Herbicides will be applied only to the beech and fern. The site is situated on the Allegheny Plateau, and is comprised of 63 acres of even-aged northern hardwood and transitional hardwood forest in New York’s central-southern tier. The herbicide is being applied to release and encourage regeneration of northern red oak and black cherry seedlings.

The impact on public health is minimal. The DEC will post information signs in close proximity to the project area. The applicator will be required to follow an herbicide action plan as well as label instructions. Herbicide application will be done with the on-site supervision of a person holding a New York State Category 2 (forestry) applicator permit.

Cayuga County - The Village of Union Springs, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the repair and maintenance of approximately 4500 feet of existing sanitary sewer. Approximately 1200 feet of sewer will be fully replaced and the remaining 3300 feet will be relined. Spot repairs will be undertaken as required. In addition manhole replacement or rehabilitation will be completed. Temporary by pass pumping will be needed during construction. The project area involves two areas of the Village which are located at the northerly and southerly limits. The project will correct the lines deterioration that has occurred over the past several years.
