NBN Comments on NuHart’s Proposed ROD Amendment

In February 2024, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYDEC) and Madison Realty Capital (MRC), announced to the community that they were making changes to the Record of Decision cleanup plan at the NuHart State Superfund Site.

Further details of the plan were released publicly in March 2024 and a public comment period was open until April 24, 2024.

North Brooklyn Neighbors (NBN) commented on a number of issues, including concerns that contamination would remain onsite, concrete deterioration, and about the way the process unfolded. NBN’s full comments are below.


NBN is also a Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) recipient for the NuHart site. This means that NBN has been given a grant by the DEC to hire independent consultation on behalf of the community. NBN’s consultant, Dr. Alan Rabideau, also submitted comments which can be found below.
