2010 April 27: NY Rochester: State Proposes New Regulations for Wood Boilers

By: Veronica R. Chiesi

The New York State Department of Conservation proposed new regulations to cut pollution from outdoor wood boilers.
The goal is to reduce the impact of smoke plumes on neighbors, and the impact on the environment. Among the rules are – emission limits, fuel restrictions, stack height requirements and a ban on the use of existing boilers in the summer, unless the units meet the requirements applicable to new boilers.
Public hearings are set to begin on the plan in June.
