Details of our Herbicide Treatment Permit

The State of Vermont is very strict about the release of chemicals in the environment.  Our use of triclopyr is subject to a long list of conditions and restrictions that are enumerated in the permit issued to us earlier this week.  The application process is exhaustive, and approvals have to be obtained from the Department of Health and the Department of Fish and Wildlife before the final permit is issued by the Lakes & Ponds Management and Protection Program of the Department of Environmental Conservation.  Yes, we get to learn quite a bit about navigating the State’s bureaucracy along the way.
