Village of Croton-on-Hudson E-Notice
Update on the proposed treatment of the Hydrilla in the Croton River:
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has applied to the Village of Croton on Hudson’s Water Control Commission for a Wetlands Activity Permit for the purpose of treating the invasive aquatic plant Hydrilla in the Croton River. The DEC proposes to treat the Hydrilla with Endothol, a contact herbicide. The Village’s Water Control Commission held an initial meeting on July 20th to consider this application.
At this meeting the Water Control Commission referred the application to the Waterfront Advisory Committee for its recommendation on the project’s consistency with the Village’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program. This meeting was held on July 21st. At this meeting additional questions were raised, prompting the Village to schedule a joint meeting with the Water Control Commission and the Waterfront Advisory Committee.
This joint meeting is scheduled for August 4th. Representatives from the DEC will be attending the meeting to address some of the questions that have been raised regarding the treatment.
The meeting on August 4th will be televised live and webstreamed.
