New Meeting Location for Li Tungsten Scheme
- Business & Finance
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has changed the location of its previously announced public meeting to explain the proposed plan for cleanup work and future land use at the former Li Tungsten Superfund site.
Due to a scheduling conflict, the meeting has been moved from the Robert Finley Middle School to the Glen Cove High School Auditorium. The date and time (Monday, June 13 at 7:00 p.m.) of the public meeting were not changed, only the meeting location.
On June 1, the EPA proposed a plan to do some additional excavation of contaminated soil in some areas of the former Li Tungsten Property in Glen Cove, N.Y.
The EPA plan includes removing and disposing of arsenic and lead-contaminated soil from portions of the site and backfilling the area with clean soil or provide covering. The EPA also announced a change in the future land use for a portion of the site due to a change in the cleanup levels for contaminated soil at a portion of the site, which was based on updated sampling.
Public comments will be accepted until July 1.
