The NYSDEC has opened a 30 day public comment period on the renewal of the State Air Facility Permit for the East 91st Street Marine Transfer Station through July 24, 2015. This comment period provides an opportunity for the community to submit written testimony in opposition to the renewal of the Air Permit and state our concerns over air quality and traffic safety. These letters of opposition are necessary to apply pressure on the NYSDEC to hold a public hearing, and this is an integral next step in our fight against the MTS.
Send letters of opposition to:
Iver M Anderson , NYSDEC Region 2 Headquarters , 47-40 21st St, Long Island City, NY 11101-5407
Or email to DEP.R2@dec.ny.gov and please be sure to include “Comments on proposed renewal of NYC-DOS East 91st Street MTS” in the subject line of the email.
Comments should be substantive and specific complaints pertaining to the negative impacts on Air Quality and changed conditions since the permits were first issued.
You can review a list of changed conditions and negative impacts on Air Quality at
Even if you have already submitted previous letters, please take the time to do so again directly to the NYSDEC during this most important 30 day comment period.
