Public Notice

The Department of Environmental Conservation has determined that the Registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites in New York State needs to be amended to delete site number 754014, known as the South Main Street Dry Cleaners Site. This site is located in the Village of Nichols, Town of Nichols, in the County of Tioga, and is located at 37 South Main Street. The reason for deletion is:

As a source area of contamination no longer exists, and contaminant concentrations in the groundwater have dropped to levels that no longer pose a threat to human health or the environment, no further action is warranted at this site.

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

Project Manager: Bradley Brown
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
Division of Environmental Remediation
625 Broadway, 11th Floor
Albany, NY 12233-7014

All written comments must be received by June 14, 2003. A summary of all written comments will be assembled and a summary will be available for viewing at our Region 7 Headquarters in Syracuse, NY.
