EPA lists top ten New York polluters
NEW YORK – The annual U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report on the amount of toxic chemicals released to the land, air and water by industrial facilities in New York State in 2009 showed a decrease over the past reporting year. The Toxics Release Inventory report issued today by EPA covered 646 New York facilities that are required to report their releases to the Agency. Total releases to land, air and water by these facilities decreased by nearly 26% from 24.7 million pounds in 2008 to 18.3 million pounds in 2009.
On Wednesday January 5, 2011 the Rhinebeck Zoning Board of Appeals will be holding a public hearing that will set a precedent for how private and public entities in the Town of Rhinebeck will be held accountable for polluting our land, air and water sources.
