Public Notice

Region 3 - 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 314085, known as the Jorgensen Residence site. This site is located in the Town of LaGrange, in the County of Dutchess, and is located at 33 Meddaugh Road. The reason for deletion is:

Because water samples from the well are below drinking water standards and neighboring wells continue to test negative, the site no longer poses a significant threat to the public health or environment.

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

Michael A. Mason, Project Manager
NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
Division of Environmental Remediation
625 Broadway, 12th floor
Albany, NY 12233-7013

All written comments must be received by June 28, 2003. A summary of all written comments will be assembled and a summary will be available for viewing at our Region 3 Headquarters in New Paltz, NY.
