|Completed Applications||Consolidated SPDES Renewals|
Notice is hereby given that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law Article 27, Title 7 and Title 9, will hold a Legislative Public Hearing on NYSDEC's proposal to amend the HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT REGULATIONS contained in Parts 370, 371, 372, 373, 374 and 376 (Part 370 series) and associated changes to Part 621 of Title 6 of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations (6 NYCRR) of the State of New York.
The proposed amendments incorporate federal hazardous waste management regulations promulgated during the period December 5, 1997 through July 6, 1999 into the New York State regulations. In addition, typographical errors and inconsistencies discovered in the regulations compared to federal regulations are corrected. Adoption of many of these federal amendments is necessary for the State to maintain final authorization from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to administer and enforce NYSDEC's hazardous waste management program in lieu of the federal hazardous waste management program. Adoption of the proposed amendments will also eliminate duplicative state and federal regulations of several hazardous waste management activities.
A legislative public hearing will be held at the William K. Sanford Town Library, 620 Albany-Shaker Road, Loudonville, New York 12211, on Thursday, July 19, 2001 at 1:30 p.m. This hearing location is accessible to handicapped persons. Interpreter services shall be made available to deaf persons at no charge, upon written request received within a reasonable time period prior to the scheduled hearing.
All persons, organizations, corporations or government agencies, etc., which may be affected by the proposed amendments, are invited to attend the hearings and to submit either written or oral statements. The hearing session will continue until all persons wishing to make statements have been heard. Written statements received prior to or during each hearing session and oral statements made at each hearing session will be given equal weight. It is recommended that lengthy statements be submitted in writing.
Written statements may be filed until close of business Tuesday, July 24, 2001, with Ms. Deborah Aldrich, NYSDEC, Division of Solid &Hazardous Materials, 625 Broadway, Albany, New York 12233-7250, faxed to or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The proposed amendments can be found on NYSDEC's web site at www.dec.state.ny.us, under the Division of Solid & Hazardous Materials. To obtain additional information, please contact Deborah Aldrich at (518) 457-0532 until June 8, 2001. After June 8, 2001, she can be reached at (518) 402-8730.

Pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law, Articles 1, 3, and 27, the Department of Environmental Conservation hereby gives notice of the following:
An Emergency Adoption was filed with Department of State and became effective on May 7, 2001 to amend 6 NYCRR Part 380 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. This emergency rule was proposed for permanent adoption in the State Register on November 15, 2000. It allows for this rule to be in effect while it goes through the rulemaking process for permanent adoption.
The purpose of the rule is to control the disposal of wastes contaminated with the radioactive wastes from the extraction of uranium and thorium from ores. The rule requires that these radioactive wastes be disposed of at facilities authorized to accept radioactive waste, and will effectively exclude them from Part 360 and Part 373 landfills, unless a variance to Part 380 is requested and granted. Variances may be granted for slightly contaminated wastes, if the proposed disposal will have no significant adverse impact on the public health and safety or the environment.
This emergency rule will be effective for 60 days from date of filing with Department of State; until July 6, 2001.
