NYS DEC has made a tentative determination to issue MPM the requested Part 373 permit modification, to increase the secondary containment capacity for interconnected hazardous waste tanks 539A and 539B by approximately 2,000 gallons.

Public Involvement In The Permit Modification Process:

State regulations provide the public with the opportunity to become involved in the major modification permit process through a minimum forty-five (45) day comment period.

The comment period for this specific permit modification begins on October 4, 2017 and ends on November 20, 2017.

All persons interested in commenting on the State Part 373 Permit Modification should submit their comments in writing to the contact listed above.

NYS DEC will consider all comments received during the public comment period, and subsequently determine whether to hold a legislative public hearing or issue the permit modification. When the NYS DEC makes a final permit decision to either issue, deny or modify this permit, notice will be given to the applicant and each person who has submitted written comments or requested notice of the final decision.
