Public Notice

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 delete site number 738010, known as Irwin Property. This site is located in the City of Oswego in the County of Oswego and is located at 70 Byer Road and 78 Byer Road. The reason for deletion is:

Buried drums and associated contaminated soil were removed and properly disposed off-site at an approved facility. Following excavation, confirmatory soil samples indicated that New York State Department of Environmental Conservation soil cleanup objectives were achieved. The excavation was backfilled with clean fill from an approved source. Groundwater sample results from monitoring wells were acceptable and met the required standards for groundwater except for minor exceedances for naturally occurring metals such as sodium and iron.

Written comments on this proposed deletion are welcome and should be sent to the Project Manager:
