Public Notice of Extension of Comment Period on Proposed Rulemaking

On November 15, 2000, pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) Sections 1-0101(1), 1-0303(19), 3-0301(1), and 27-0501, the Department of Environmental Conservation gave notice of the following proposed rulemaking action:

A Proposed Rulemaking was filed with the Department of State on October 27, 2000 to regulate the disposal of the radioactive wastes generated by the extraction or concentration of uranium or thorium, where such waste is not regulated by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The primary source of these wastes is sites where uranium and thorium were refined during and shortly following World War II. Under this amendment, these wastes must be disposed of as radioactive waste and in accordance with Part 380.

Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) for Water Pollution Control First Quarter Update of the FFY 2001 Intended Use Plan (IUP)

The 2001 IUP for the CWSRF was issued in September 2000. Since that time, municipalities have requested funding for additional projects. Municipal water quality protection projects must be included in the IUP to receive low interest rate loans.

The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) and the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) have prepared the final First Quarter Update of the 2001 CWSRF Intended Use Plan. The First Quarter Update will provide interested parties with new and updated information regarding projects listed in the 2001 IUP Annual and Multi-Year Project Priority Lists (PPL).

A notice regarding the draft First Quarter Update was published in the December 27, 2000 issue of the Environmental Notice Bulletin (ENB). Comments were accepted until close of business Friday, January 12, 2001. No public comments were received that necessitated revision of the Update. Therefore, the First Quarter Update to the 2001 CWSRF IUP is final.

If you would like a copy of the First Quarter Update, or additional information on the CWSRF program and how to list a project on the IUP, please contact Mr. David Morseman at EFC’s toll-free information line (800) 882-9721 ext. #4 (within NYS only) or (518) 457-3833. Written requests for CWSRF program information should be addressed to Mr. Morseman at Division of Program Management, New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation, 50 Wolf Road, Room 502, Albany, New York 12205-2603.

The final First Quarter Update and other information on the Clean Water SRF program can be viewed on the World Wide Web at www.nysefc.org
