TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) - Tonawanda Coke has requested a hearing from the New York State Department of Conservation following a cease and desist order issued by the state last month.
In a letter to the DEC dated July 31, attorneys for Tonawanda Coke state that the company is expending significant resources in an effort to address the situation.
The hearing will take place some time in the next 60 days.
DEC said in a statement Wednesday that they will schedule the hearing, although "this action does not relieve the company from our rigorous oversight of all plant operations and we will continue to use all legal tools to pursue the company for any violation of law".
