Dominion/CNG Transmission Spill 9912031 Closed for Questionable Reasons

On 7/28/16, Toxics Targeting released for public review a Dominion/CNG Transmission spill profile (9912031) which documented that extensive contamination at 1103 Higby Road, New Hartford, NY was never cleaned up in compliance with New York State standards for 16 years after the petroleum release was reported on 1/18/2000.

At that time, the spill was administratively active and did not meet clean up standards.

On 7/29/16, the State Department of Environmental Conservation administratively closed the spill on the same day the pollution release received extensive media coverage even though the State Department of Environment Conservation reported, "SOME CONTAMINATION REMAINS IN DITCH."
