Update on New York State Industrial Runoff Permits


Here’s a quick update on our challenge to NY DEC’s MSGP (industrial)general permit. NYDEC served a demand to change the venue from Westchester to Albany. In response, we served an affidavit showing that Westchester is the proper venue. Now NY DEC  will file a motion to transfer, and we will oppose such a transfer and try to keep the case in the proper venue. Poor rules pertaining to industrial facilities contribute pollutants to the Sound, rivers and other waterways.
