Senator George Maziarz, Assemblyman John Ceretto, and Assemblywoman Jane Corwin have sent a letter to the Commissioner of the New York State Department of Conservation urging that the 60-day public comment period on the CWM hazardous waste landfill expansion that begins today be extended to 120-days. A copy of the letter is attached.
In early May, Senator George Maziarz and his legislative colleagues wrote to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to call on that state agency to extend the public comment period on CWM’s expansion proposal by an additional sixty days. Today the DEC announced they will heed this request and push back the deadline for the public to submit written comments from early July to September 5, 2014.
