October 28, 2009

Governor David A. Paterson today announced that New York State and the federal government have reached an agreement resolving financial responsibility for the cleanup of radioactive waste at the Western New York Nuclear Service Center, also known as West Valley Site, in Cattaraugus County.

The resolution ends a decade-long dispute over the allocation of cleanup costs between the state and federal governments.

"This resolution is a significant milestone in our ongoing work to decontaminate the West Valley Site and ensure the area's long-term environmental health and safety," Governor Paterson said. "With this agreement, our state and federal governments may proceed with a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities."
