A requested permit renewal for the solid-waste transfer station on Meadow Street is in the hands of state Department of Environmental Protection after a public hearing at City Hall on Monday night.

Although the state DEP earlier made a tentative determination to approve the renewal application submitted by Waste Management of Connecticut, Inc., some residents have concerns about the facility

Just ask Jackie whats going on,she was warned about this type of remediation on the land next to the transfer station when she pushed for it to be a city owned but privately run station.They washed trucks and dumpsters here for years without any bales of hay to catch any contaminants from running into Village creek.A recent oil spill recorded by the US Coast Gaurd was also an event on this small street.Why has there been commercial trailors on this street when the city has never given City Carting permission to use the street as a parking lot?Do those filters have those drain ponges in them?

Norwalk has always been so diligent in keeping the environment clean with drain sponges .Those storm drains on Meadow should have them right?

click on and read the whole thing its a lesson most who take our Norwalk river seriously should address.

Michael Yeosock, Norwalk's senior engineer, said replacing drain filters is "pretty darned expensive."
Bird shit, gasoline, dirty syringes, fast-food trash, pet feces, motor oil, cigarette butts, lawn fertilizer, road salt, used condoms, car wash detergent, ooze from rotting septic systems.
Some variation on this potentially toxic sludge cocktail is getting washed into storm drains in every urban area in Connecticut after every heavy rain or snow melt. It flows into our streams, rivers, lakes, and eventually into Long Island Sound. It's what forces the shut-down of state and local beaches and swimming areas in the wake of almost every big downpour. Some environmentalists worry global warming could make the whole mess worse.
Stopping it is going to cost a whole lot of money. If you want proof, consider Norwalk's $500,000 experiment.
In 2005, U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman earmarked a chunk of federal money for a test project using high-tech storm drain filters to keep pollutants and sediment from washing into Norwalk Harbor and its oyster beds.
Norwalk officials were hoping to find a cost-effective alternative to dredging polluted sediments from the harbor every four or five years, at about $250,000 a pop, according to the city's senior engineer, Michael Yeosock.
The filter idea wasn't part of any U.S. Environmental Protection Agency plan. Steven Winnett, an environmental scientist with the agency's regional office in Boston, recalled that Lieberman got the $400,000 and basically said, "Here, EPA, give this to the city of Norwalk."

Now hazardous material has been found on this road wonder how long is it going to take until Moccia admits things have been done wrong here?
