Subject: [CPEO-BIF] CITGO gas station, Dolgeville, New York

Dolgeville, N.Y. -

The state Department of Environmental Conservation, working cooperatively with the state Department of Health, has determined that the former CITGO gas station site at 99 N. Main St., Dolgeville, is free from contaminants and is acceptable for residential and commercial use. As part of the process of returning the former brownfield site to the tax rolls, the state department is accepting public comment on its proposal that no further action or steps are necessary to remediate the site. While written comments will be accepted by the DEC until September 2, the formal public hearing on the proposal and the result of the actions taken was held Wednesday.

"As a result of this decision, the village does not need environmental easements, permits or variances to move forward with its intention to sell the property and return it to commercial use," said Peter Ouderkirk of the Region 6 Division of Environmental Remediation Office.
