ENB - Region 9 Notices 4/1/2009

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 915017, known as Donner Hanna Coke. This site is located in the City of Buffalo in the County of Erie, and is located at 100 Rittling Blvd., Buffalo, New York 14220. The reason for deletion is:

Cleanup of the site was assumed by Hydro-Air Components under the Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) as Site #C915204. In 2007, environmental remediation and development under the BCP was completed and the site has been fully addressed. The site is now comprised of an approximately 144,000 square foot manufacturing facility and additional office space. An Environmental Easement, which contains a soil/fill management plan, prohibits groundwater use and restricts the site use to industrial, was filed in the Erie County Clerk's office on 12/21/2007. Certification of Institutional Controls will be tracked under BCP Site #C915204.

Exposures to contaminated soil/waste are not expected because the residual contamination is subsurface and covered. Exposures to contaminated groundwater via drinking water are not expected because the area is served by public water.

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

Maurice Moore
NYS DEC - Region 9 Office
270 Michigan Avenue
Buffalo, NY 14293

All written comments must be received by May 1, 2009. A summary of all written comments will be assembled and made available for viewing at our Region 9 Office, 270 Michigan Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14203.
