Abstract:
This dataset includes a point location for each remediation site in New York State which has been mapped as of September 2006. The file formerly known as Inactive Hazardous Waste Sites is now included in the Remediation Site file. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is charged with the responsibility of administering the investigation and cleanup of remediation sites within New York State. The DEC must also maintain accurate records for each remediation site and identify such sites and routinely collect and maintain information about each site in order to facilitate sound decision making practices. The DEC's Division of Environmental Remediation continues to successfully address and cleanup remediation sites throughout New York State. GIS data are updated on an ongoing basis. The Bureau of Technical Support extracts the data from the Division of Environmental Remediation's database and the DIS/GIS Unit converts it to a shapefile. If a more current dataset is needed, contact the Bureau of Technical Support, Division of Environmental Remediation at 518-402-9543.
Purpose:
The extent of a site cannot be determined from this dataset. The points in this file represent only the existence of a Remediation site.
Supplemental_Information:
Items (or Fields) in the Point Attribute Table: SITECODE:The Site Code (a.k.a. Site ID No., Site Number) is the Registry number assigned by the NYSDEC. The first digit represents the NYSDEC Region in which the site is located, the next two digits represent the county and the final three digits designate the particular site within the county. Some sites bear a letter following the final three digits. Site Codes which include a letter following the six digit number are known by the entire string. SITENAME:The Site Name is the formal name of the site as assigned by the NYSDEC. PROGRAM:See Description Below and use links for more information. ProgramDescription Brownfield Cleanup ProgramThis cleanup program is modeled after, and now replaces, the DEC's administrative Voluntary Cleanup Program. State Superfund ProgramThe Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Site Remedial Program. Environmental Restoration ProgramThis is a cleanup grant program under the 1996 Clean Water/Clean Air Bond Act for municipally-owned sites. This program was formerly referred to as the "Brownfields" Program. Voluntary Cleanup ProgramThe program was developed to enhance private sector cleanup of brownfields by enabling parties to remediate sites using private rather than public funds and to reduce the development pressures on "greenfield" sites. On October 7, 2003, Governor Pataki signed into law comprehensive legislation to create a new Brownfield Cleanup Program ("BCP"), modeled after the Department's existing administrative Voluntary Cleanup Program ("VCP"). SITECLASS:The Site Class record is the site's classification according to the Hazardous Waste Site Classification System. Site classifications only apply to sites being remediated under the State Superfund Program and indicates degree of threat and the status of the site in the remedial process. There are designations of sites in this GIS dataset: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Sites which been removed from the States Registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites are designated "C". Site classifications C and A apply to the other Division Programs - Environmental Restoration Program, Voluntary Cleanup Program, and Brownfield Cleanup Program. Additional description and definitions can be found at: Division of Environmental Remediation's Homepage ValueDefinition 01Causing or presenting an imminent danger of causing irreversible or irreparable damage to the public health or environment - immediate action required 02Significant threat to the public health or environment - action required 03Does not present a significant threat to the public health or the environment - action may be deferred 04Site properly closed - requires continued management 05Site properly closed, no evidence of present or potential adverse impact - no further action is required CRemediation Complete (formerly D2): Used for sites in any remedial program where the Department has determined that remediation has been satisfactorily completed. This can include delisted Registry sites and non-Registry sites that have satisfactorily completed construction (in the future these will receive a Certificate of Completion). Note that completed sites may still require some degree of site management associated with either operation, maintenance, and monitoring or with institutional/engineering controls (IC/ECs). AActive: Classification to be used for non-Registry sites in any remedial program where work is underway and not yet complete (i. e., BCP, ERP, VCP sites). ADDRESS1, ADDRESS2:Street address for the site's location LOCALITY:City, town or village where the site is located ZIPCODE:ZIP CODE for the site's address COUNTY:The county name TOWN:The town name REGION:The region number corresponds to one of the nine NYSDEC regions in which the site is located. X_COORD:Easting coordinate of the site Y_COORD:Northing coordinate of the site METHOD:An accuracy method code given to classify the accuracy of the data point. Values are: 4.1 Address Matching. Variable Horizontal Accuracy. 4.2 Utilization of GIS and existing digital spatial data. Variable Horizontal Accuracy. ACCURACY:A description of the level of accuracy. ACCURACYUNIT:The accuracy unit, if applicable.
