Legal challenge looms against DEC for allowing regional waste transfer facility

ITHACA, NY – County Line Restoration Facility, a decommissioned waste transportation facility in Kayota, has been approved by the New York State Division of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to just accept municipal and business waste. They had been additionally allowed to move the ensuing leachate to the Ithaca District Wastewater Remedy Facility (IAWWTF).

The leachate is the results of water seeping by way of the waste, extracting compounds which can be typically dangerous to the setting and human well being, except correctly handled.

However there is a large drawback with the County Line’s leachate disposal plan: The IAWWTF by no means knew {that a} waste switch facility would ship the leachate for processing.
