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 516005, known as River Street. This site is located in the Village of Lake Placid, in the County of Essex and is located at River Street. The reason for deletion is:

All components of the selected remedy have been completed in accordance with the Record of Decision. There are no longer any environmental problems associated with the disposal of hazardous waste at this site. Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB) contaminated soils in excess of the cleanup goals of 1 part per million in the first foot of soil and 10 parts per million below that have been excavated and removed for proper disposal. The affected area has been backfilled, graded, and re-seeded. There are limited areas where soil deeper than one foot has residual PCB contamination between 1 and 10 parts per million. The limited, low-level contamination is unlikely to pose an exposure concern to future users of the property.

Site is currently recommended for delist and is in the public review-comment period.

Written comments on this proposed deletion are welcome, and should be sent to:
Project Manager: Russell Mulvey
NYSDEC - Region 5 Headquarters
P.O. Box 296
Ray Brook, NY 12977

All written comments must be received by June 24, 2005. A summary of all written comments will be assembled and a summary will be available for viewing at our Region 5 Headquarters in Ray Brook, New York.
