What is the Brownfield Cleanup Program?

New York's Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) is designed to encourage private-sector cleanups of brownfields and to promote their redevelopment as a means to revitalize economically blighted communities. The BCP is an alternative to "greenfield" (land not previously developed or contaminated) development and is intended to remove some of the barriers to, and provide tax incentives for, the redevelopment of brownfields. Since its inception (2003), the BCP has catalyzed the cleanup of more than 300 contaminated sites statewide and incentivized redevelopment. There are more than 350 active sites in the BCP.

Additional information on the New York State's Brownfield program is available at NYS DEC's website: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/8450.html.

Cattaraugus County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cattaraugus RA #5, Stands 48, 52, 58, 59, 63, 64, 65 and 66 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of herbicide to approximately 153 ± acres of forest as part of a timber stand improvement to control undesirable regeneration colonizing the understory of the forest stands. Target species include New York, Bracken and Hay-scented fern; Striped maple, hophornbeam, Black birch and American beech. Treatment methods will include application to cut stump, basal bark spray, frill or hack and squirt and foliar to target species only. This will create conditions suitable for seed germination and the establishment of desirable commercial timber species. The abundance of these undesirable plant species present on the site are growing at a density that interferes with the development of desirable forest regeneration. Herbicide application is the most effective way to eliminate undesirable plant species that interfere with the development of desirable forest regeneration. A timber sale is scheduled for these stands in the near future. The project is located in the Town of Great Valley, New York.
