Delist Petition

Site Name: Airmont Cemetery Dump Site
Site Address: South Airmont Road
Airmont, NY 10901
County: Rockland
Site No.: 3-44-033

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has received a Petition for Removal of the Airmont Cemetery Dump Site (Class 4 Site No. 3-44-033) from the New York State Registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites (The Registry). The site is located on South Airmont Road in the Village of Airmont, Town of Ramapo, Rockland County. The site was placed on the Registry because residential wells in the area sampled by the Rockland County Department of Health contained 1,1,1-trichloroethene (TCA) above the drinking water standards.

The Petition alleges that no source of 1, 1, 1 TCA has ever been located at this site and that the analytical results for groundwater samples from two of the existing monitoring wells indicated no presence of 1,1,1, TCA or any other source of groundwater contamination on site. Furthermore, the Petition states that contaminant levels off-site have decreased significantly and consistently.

Additional information about this site can be found at the DEC web page: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/cfmx/extapps/derfoil/haz/details.cfm?pageid=3

DEC has initiated an internal review of the Petition. Written public comments on the proposed deletion can be sent by March 15, 2007 to :

Negative Declaration

Sullivan County - The New York State Department Of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed North Branch Sand and Gravel Pit, New Mining Application will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the applicant proposing to mine approximately 240,000 tons of sand and gravel from 16 acres of an approximately 40 acre site over the course of ten years, with approximately 8.4 acres to be mined in the first 5 years and the remaining 7.2 acres in the second 5 year period. The site was until recently operating as a poultry farm, with the majority of the site occupied by fields for feed corn. The current slopes limit use of the equipment on the fields. The proposed reclamation objective for the site is a return to agricultural land with more even slopes. No excavation below the water table is proposed. Material processing on site will be limited to the use of a portable screening plant with an expected production of approximately 300 tons per day. The project is located at 46 Stewart Rd, approximately 1000 feet north of County Route 121 (locally known as North Branch Road) and east of Stewart Road in the hamlet of North Branch, Town of Callicoon, Sullivan County. Buck Brook flows along the east edge of the property.
