State, local investigators inspect illegal Deer Park dump site

State and local investigators examined an illegal dump site in Babylon that sits atop a sensitive wetland area and drains into the Great South Bay. The Babylon site is one of several dumping tips authorities say they have received as a result of an investigation in Islip Town, complicating the task for investigators as they try to get to the bottom of who is responsible for dumping an estimated 32,000 tons of asbestos-laden debris at Roberto Clemente Park in Brentwood.
