The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), a public health agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has extended the public comment period for its public health consultation (PHC) of the Colonie Site in Albany, N.Y. through Nov. 3, 2003.
The public comment period, originally slated to close Oct. 3, 2003, has been extended to Nov. 2 based on a request from a local assembly member. The consultation will also be accessible on the agency website. Members of the community are invited to provide feedback and comments on the current PHC.
The document is available at the following repository:

Comments received, without the names of individuals who submitted them, and ATSDR's responses to the comments will appear in an appendix to the final public health consultation. Names of those who submit comments, however, will be subject to release for requests made under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act.
