1:00 PMVirtual Public Hearing About Prohibiting Glyphosate Use on State Properties

Location  Online / Virtual

DEC Proposes New Rules Prohibiting Glyphosate Use on State Properties --

Proposal Helps Transition Away from Glyphosate-Based Weed Killers

Virtual Public Hearing to be Held on Aug. 17th at 1 PM

Information on how to participate in the hearing 

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced a proposed regulation to prohibit the use of glyphosate on State property to protect public health and environmental resources from exposure to this pesticide. In addition, as part of the proposed regulation, DEC will collect new data to help determine where and how much glyphosate products are used on State property, as well as the potential impacts these pesticides may have.
  
The proposed regulation, required by a recent amendment to New York’s Environmental Conservation Law, would prohibit State departments and agencies, public benefit corporations, and their contractors and subcontractors, from applying glyphosate on State properties under most circumstances. Critical use exemptions in the law include maintenance of critical infrastructure, management of roadside vegetation to ensure public safety, habitat management for the control of invasive species and pests of significant public health importance, noxious weeds injurious to ecosystem health, protection of critical native plant species, and research of glyphosate alternatives. The use of glyphosate under the appropriate circumstances and conditions is highly effective in meeting these control needs. However, under the proposed regulation, glyphosate can only be used on these State properties when there is no actual or significant threat of direct human exposure.

The proposal outlines the documentation required to meet these prerequisites. In addition, the proposed regulation establishes reporting and recordkeeping procedures to assist DEC in its responsibilities to report glyphosate use by State departments and agencies, public benefit corporations, and their contractors or subcontractors on State property.

The comment period on the draft regulation ends on Aug. 22, 2022. The public is encouraged to submit comments in writing to NYSDEC, Pesticide Enforcement and Compliance Assurance Section, Bureau of Pesticides Management, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-7254, or by email to: glyphosateregs@dec.ny.gov.

This follows up on DEC actions earlier this year to protect public health and the environment by restricting the use of products containing the neonicotinoid (“neonic”) insecticides imidacloprid, thiamethoxam, and acetamiprid to help prevent potentially harmful exposure to honeybees and other beneficial insects. DEC is reclassifying certain products containing these neonic insecticides as "restricted use" to ensure applications are limited to trained pesticide applicators in specific situations.

DEC and Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper to Hold Virtual Outreach on Aug. 18 for Buffalo River AOC

Organizations will Provide a Progress Update and Invite Public Comments on the Continuing Restoration of the Buffalo River Area of Concern

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper will hold a virtual outreach event from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 18, 2022, to update the public about ongoing efforts to restore natural resources in the Buffalo River Area of Concern (AOC) and the proposed removal of the 'Restrictions on Dredging Activities Beneficial Use Impairment' (BUI).
Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper, in partnership with Erie County and DEC, coordinates these restoration efforts under the Buffalo River AOC Remedial Action Plan (RAP).

The Buffalo River AOC is located in the City of Buffalo, Erie County, and includes the historically industrialized portion of the river beginning at its mouth (where it outlets to Lake Erie), and continuing upstream approximately six miles to the Bailey Avenue bridge. The Restrictions on Dredging Activities BUI was originally designated as impaired in the 1980s due to elevated concentrations of multiple chemical contaminants in river sediments. Extensive remediation of contaminated river sediments and contaminant source areas along the river shoreline since that time, as well as subsequent contaminant monitoring, demonstrates that the criteria established to remove the Restrictions on Dredging Activities BUI has been achieved.

A draft report, which details the completed actions and assessments supporting the BUI removal, is available for public review at Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper's website. Public comments on the draft report and proposed BUI removal may be made at the Aug. 18 virtual event and are also being accepted at Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper's online portal on its website through Sept. 8, 2022.

To participate in the virtual event online, go to Zoom.

Meeting ID: 875 6479 3714 Passcode: 898568

To join by telephone dial 1-646-558-8656 and enter the Meeting ID and Passcode.

For more information on the Buffalo River Area of Concern, visit the Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper and U.S. EPA websites.
