There are two areas of contamination: one a shallow plume that exists above 20 feet down from the ground’s surface, the other a deep plume that runs below 20 feet.

According to the DEC, no “site-related surface water impacts have been identified.”

At the meeting, DEC and DOH staff will describe the contents of a cleanup proposal, called a Proposed Remedial Action Plan.

The DEC is accepting written comments about the proposed plan through Jan. 30.
