NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION

Applicant: Indian Point 3, Entergy Nuclear Northeast, Inc.
Date: November 1, 2006
Address: 450 Broadway, Suite 3
Buchanan, NY 10511
Permits/Application numbers: Part 373 Hazardous Waste Management Permit
UPA # 3-5522-00105/8
EPA ID # NYD085503746

Project location/description: Indian Point 3 is an electrical generating plant with a 980,000-kilowatt output which is located on approximately 75 acres on the eastern shore of the Hudson River in the Town of Buchanan. The plant uses a pressurized water reactor (PWR) to produce steam, which in turn drives a generator to make electricity. During its operation, hazardous wastes and low level mixed wastes (waste that contains both low-level radioactive waste and hazardous waste) are generated and subsequently disposed of at an off-site facility in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Hazardous only wastes (do not include a radioactive waste component) are currently stored for less than 90 days, before being transported off-site for disposal at a properly licensed or permitted facility. Indian Point 3 requested (via a Part A permit application dated June 7, 1990) and was issued a Part 373 Hazardous Waste Management Permit (effective September 9, 1996) to store the low level mixed waste generated on-site for greater than 90 days.

On September 3, 2005 regulation 6 NYCRR 374-1.9, Conditional Exemption for Low-Level Mixed Waste Storage and Disposal, became effective. The regulation requires that the facility notify the Department of their claim for exemption within 90 days of the effective date. The Storage and Treatment Conditional Exemption exempts low-level mixed waste from the regulatory definition of hazardous waste in subdivision 371.1(d) of 6 NYCRR if the waste meets the eligibility criteria and conditions of 6 NYCRR 374-1.9(b)(2) and (3). A requirement of the Conditional Exemption is that the facility must be licensed by the NRC or a NRC Agreement State and meet the license requirements as well as requirements set forth in Part 374 regulations.

On October 26, 2005, Entergy submitted a claim for conditional exemption for low-level mixed waste storage and disposal and requested termination of their Part 373 Hazardous Waste Management Permit. Entergy has certified that the facility has only stored wastes meeting the definition of mixed wastes and has never stored wastes classified solely as a hazardous waste in the formerly permitted, now exempt areas. Entergy also certified that, presently, there are no corrective action issues at the facility. Based on the claim for conditional exemption, a review of the facility’s operations and their submittal of required certifications, the Department has allowed the permit to expire.

Tentative permit determination: Expiration of Part 373 Hazardous Waste Management Permit based on claim for Conditional Exemption for Low-level Mixed Waste Storage and Disposal under 6 NYCRR 374-1.9.

Document availability: The related permit and conditional exemption documents are available at the DEC Central Office, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-7258 and at the DEC Region 3 Office, 21 South Putt Corners Road, New Paltz, NY 12561.

Notice Of Acceptance Of Final Generic EIS

Westchester County - The Common Council – City of Peekskill, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Waterfront Community Redevelopment Plan. The action involves a Community Redevelopment Plan (CRP) to revitalize and redevelop underutilized parcels adjacent to waterfront public parkland and open space. This CRP is based on the City's Waterfront Redevelopment Plan (the Sasaki Plan) prepared by Sasaki Associates in 1990, and the City's Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) adopted in 2004. The plan is intended to guide and facilitate the redevelopment of property to the east of the Metro-North railroad tracks, according to the vision that has been developed by the City over the past fifteen years.

The plan is generally designed to facilitate a reorientation of the project area from an underutilized area of a heavily industrial character to a neighborhood of water-enhanced uses. It proposes redevelopment and rehabilitation to create a transit oriented, mixed-use neighborhood with residential, commercial and public uses, and enhanced public waterfront access. Redevelopment in the project area would be governed by the existing WF-2 waterfront zoning regulations, but would include a maximum development cap of 500 dwelling units, a commercial component, and a minimum of 500 parking spaces in a structured parking facility(ies) in proximity to the Metro-North railroad station. The project location is community redevelopment area generally bounded by Metro-North Railroad, terminus of N. Water Street, Route 9 and Requa Street, with an extension along Central Avenue to the intersection of Washington Street, plus relocation sites on Lower South Street.
