k. Description of Transfer: Pyrites Associates is a general partnership organized under the laws of the state of New York, consisting of the general partners Hydro Development Group, Inc. (Hydro), and Hydra-Co Enterprises, Inc. (Hydra). The application states that the proposed transfer will result from CHI-Dexter, Inc., a Delaware corporation, purchasing the remaining interest of Hydra as a general partner in Pyrites Associates. Under the purchase transaction, Hydra will cease to be a general partner and CHI-Dexter will become a general partner in the partnership entity that will continue to operate under the name Pyrite Associates. The application states that the purchase transaction will arguably cause a technical dissolution of Pyrites Associates under Section 60 of New York's Partnership Law.

The applicant states that operation of the project will not change as a result of the proposed transfer and the current operator, Hydro, will continue as operator.
