DEC clarifies O&G trucking permits

Jamie Larson reports in the Register-Star:

Hudson River environmental advocacy organization Scenic Hudson has withdrawn its appeal of the issuance of a Freshwater Wetland permit by the Department of Environmental Conservation to the O&G trucking company for “maintenance” to a section of the controversial old railroad bed causeway through the city of Hudson’s south bay.

…because the DEC has explained the limits of O&G’s current permit. O&G trucking company was issued a Fresh Water Wetland Permit on Oct. 30, 2009 to fix a road (or turn-around) for trucks, along, “two 200+/- foot spans along adjacent shoulders of Route 9G where the Hudson causeway emerges on the west side of the road and on the east side where the causeway continues on to Greenport,” Larson reports. But the company, “will need a Certificate of Occupancy to actually run any trucks over a potential new road,” the story states.
