DEC Confused about Our Comments?

Christine - I was reading through your report today, and noticed a collection of articles related to California mining industries, regulations, etc., and a history and mission for the PJHRP. But I did not see any comments or concerns relative to this operation, and the regs and NY specific situation and standards, or site-specific concerns that you had that you were requesting responses on. I understand that California has ozone and air quality related problems, however, Pittstown is not on the same air quality level as California (thankfully), so I am not understanding the correlation. Did you have site-specific comments and concerns for this proposal? could you send them to me? sorry.......
