Town Board calls on DEC to accept Tonawanda Coke site into Brownfield Cleanup Program by ALAN RIZZO Ken-Ton Bee (NY) May 7, 2019 Citing the safety of the community, the Tonawanda Town Board is asking the state to expedite its investigations of the former Tonawanda Coke Corp. plant property so that it can be redeveloped without delay. In a resolution introduced at the end of the board’s May 6 meeting, Town of Tonawanda Supervisor Joseph Emminger requested that the state Department of Environmental Conservation place the property in its Brownfield Cleanup Program. “Without the benefits of the BCP, industrial sites may take decades to clean up and then sit idle/vacant longer, while waiting for a developer to choose between similar industrial sites in the community,” he said, reading from the resolution. “The BCP has a long and proven record of successfully remediating environmentally contaminated properties in Western New York and throughout all of New York State, and the Tonawanda Coke property is located in close proximity to the Niagara River and residential neighborhoods within the town, and a complete, safe and expeditious cleanup of the site is in the best interests of the community.” … For the entire article, see https://www.kentonbee.com/articles/town-board-calls-on-dec-to-accept-tonawanda-coke-site-into-brownfield-cleanup-program/ -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
