The Endicott Interconnect (EIT) Waste Treatment Facility is comprised of
many interconnected buildings, tanks, and associated piping. (highlighted).
Building 259 is an incinerator. Is it still being used?

EIT in Endicott has at least 2 SPDES (wastewater discharge) permits, so they routinely make discharges legally into the storm sewers, which drain directly into the river:

There was a leak in Feb 26, 2013 of between 4,000 gallons and 17,000 gallons when a valve rusted and broke, draining a tank containing untreated leachate into the ground, storm sewers, and the Susquehanna River. DEC Spill Incident #1215896  

Other trucks seen entering the EIT facility were followed to Williamsport PA.,
although it is not clear whether they were dropping off, or picking up waste.
