Hundreds Express Opinions On Proposed Tire Burn

Ticonderoga, NY – The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation recently issued a draft permit for International Paper to conduct a test burn of tire-derived fuel at its Ticonderoga, New York mill. The first public hearings regarding that permit were held Wednesday in Ticonderoga. Hundreds of people attended an afternoon and another evening session to state the pros and cons of the plant's plan. WAMC's North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley was at the hearings.
