Public Information Meeting

Statewide - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), Division of Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources, will conduct a public information meeting on September 17th 2001 to discuss the revision of the NYS Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) Comprehensive Management Plan. The primary goal of the meeting is to gather information from parties interested in or affected by invasive, exotic nuisance aquatic species such as: zebra mussels; eurasian watermilfoil; round goby; or others. Input is sought from the general public, natural resource trustees, municipalities, boating/sporting organizations, utilities, or other interested parties. This information is sought because the NYSDEC is revising the current ANS management plan that was first written in 1993. The plan is being revised to maintain consistency with the latest Federal guidance, thus allowing NYSDEC continued access to Federal funding for ANS management activities. Input regarding the environmental and socio-economic impacts of ANS species is sought from both ANS scientists and public interest groups. Productive input from individuals and groups will be essential to the NYSDEC in preparing the revised plan. The public information meeting will include brief informational presentations from NYSDEC, followed by a facilitated discussion. Interested parties that can not attend are asked to submit relevant comments to the contact address below, or via email by October 1st. The meeting will be open to the public from 7 - 10 PM. Those planning to attend are encouraged to indicate so by email or phone for planning purposes. The location of the meeting and contact information is listed below. Direction/map can be provided upon request.

ANS Meeting date: September 17, 2001 at Raybrook DEC Region 5 Office from 7 - 10 p.m. Route 86, P.O. Box 296 Ray Brook, NY (518) 897-1211

Notice of Emergency Adoption

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 September 4, 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 November 3, 2001.
