CLEANING OF BROOKFIELD LANDFILL TO BEGINDepartment of Environmental Protection and Department of Environmental Conservation officials have announced that contractors are planning to build a ramp to connect the Korean War Veterans Parkway to the site via a Richmond Avenue overpass in the next two weeks. That will allow the 100-200 trucks that will be utilized to haul dirt each day to avoid local roads. They will also create an external slurry wall that will surround the site to hold water and soil contaminants. The entire remediation of the site is expected to take three and a half years. This is great news for Staten Island, but I have a question. After reviewing news articles from October 2006 when it was announced clean up would begin in May 2007 the announcement indicated "the 272 Acre site 's environmental restoration is imminent", but the current announcement states "cleanup of the 127 acre site has officially begun", my question-what happened to the missing 145 acres?December 13 2009 - Staten Island00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
