ENB - Region 7 Notices 2/18/2009
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) has determined that the Registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites in New York State needs to be amended to delist a portion of site number 712006, known as SCM Cortlandville, specifically Lot 3-R2. This site is located in the Town of Cortlandville in the County of Cortland and is located at 839 Route 13 South.
The reason for the de-listing of this portion of the former SCM Cortlandville site property from the registry of inactive hazardous waste sites is, as a condition for the de-listing, active sub-slab depressurization systems will be required in any structures on the property. These systems are required to be maintained and certified annually by a professional engineer, and property use restrictions prevent the use of the land for residential purposes. These requirements will ensure that remaining low levels of contamination in soil, groundwater, and soil vapor will not pose a treat to human health for future occupants.
Written comments on this proposed partial de-listing are welcome and should be sent to the Project Manager:
NYS DEC - Division of Environmental Remediation, Bureau E
625 Broadway, 12th Floor
Albany, NY 12233-7013
All written comments must be received by March 20, 2009. A summary of all written comments will be assembled and a summary will be available for viewing at the project manager's address listed above.
