Town allows city operation,if needed, with conditions

(Continued)

A weather station is to be installed, so data will be available as to conditions at the time of possible odor issues.

Spill-contingency plans and disaster plans need to be placed on file.

The permit also calls for the town to have authority to demand the plant temporarily shut down in the event of odor complaints, after consultation with the Advisory Committee, DEC and the town water and wastewater director.

The permit is in effect for five years from the date it is issued, or until any state or federal permits expire, whichever happens first.
