CHADWICKS, N.Y. – A cleanup project on a Chadwicks property on Oneida Street is now complete. According to the Department of Environmental Conservation, crews worked to remove contamination caused by industrial activity.
The DEC says the site is in good enough condition to be removed from the state’s registry of Inactive Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites, commonly known as the State Superfund Program.
“New York’s State Superfund Program successfully works to identify, investigate, and clean up contaminated sites that present a threat to public health and the environment so that communities are protected and can thrive,” said DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos. “DEC is working aggressively to address historic contamination in communities throughout the state, and this property has been transformed so that it can help contribute to the local economy once again.”
The work at the site included cleaning machines containing PCB oils and fluids, as well as removing contaminated soil. The DEC says all areas of the site now meet unrestricted or residential use soil cleanup objectives.
Public comments on the state’s proposal to remove the site from the registry will be accepted until Nov. 29.
