EPA removes Griffiss land from Superfund list By JENNIFER BOGDAN Utica Observer-Dispatch (NY) March 23, 2009 ROME —More than 2,800 acres of land at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park are ready for development after the Environmental Protection Agency removed them from its list of significant hazardous waste sites.
The step, which occurred Friday, is a major milestone that could help officials better promote the property, officials said.
"This removes a huge marketing impediment from the area, and opens up the area to many more possibilities in terms of growth," said Steve DiMeo, president of Mohawk Valley EDGE, a Rome-based economic development agency for Oneida and Herkimer counties. "That label is like the scarlet letter."
The EPA removed 2,900 of the 3,552 acres at the former Air Force base from the National Priorities List, a list of hazardous waste sites eligible for cleanup funding under EPA's Superfund program.
