November 2012

The Durez Corporation (Durez) submitted an application to renew its 6 NYCRR Part 373 Hazardous Waste Management Permit for their Durez facility in Niagara Falls, NY. The NYSDEC has made a tentative determination to issue Durez a Part 373 Permit renewal.

Purpose Of The Permit Renewal Process

The purpose of the permit renewal process is to allow the NYSDEC, interested citizens and other governmental agencies the opportunity to evaluate the renewed draft permit and permit application as it relates to compliance with the applicable requirements promulgated under New York State Laws. The NYSDEC is required to prepare a draft permit which sets forth all applicable requirements with which the NYSDEC intends to require Durez to comply during the term of the permit. The public is being provided with forty-five (45) days to review the Durez application and draft permit prior to the NYSDEC making a final determination on the permit.

Public Involvement In The Permit Renewal Process

State regulations provide the public with the opportunity to become involved in the permit renewal process through a comment period which can be extended in response to public requests. The comment period for this specific permit renewal begins on December 19, 2012 and ends on February 3, 2013.
