Cleaning Up the Soil at the Lundy Site

The NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will hold a public meeting about soil clean up at the Lundy/Transtechnology site on Thursday, March 2, from 7 P.M. to 10 P.M. at North Shore Middle School, Glen Head.

According to the DEC, the purpose of the meeting is to discuss the Proposed Remedial Action Plan (PRAP) for SOIL CLEAN UP ONLY—not groundwater, proposed uses, or any site plan that has been circulated. Also according to DEC, the PRAP is available for review at Glen Cove Public Library; the public comment period is from February 22 to March 23.

The 7-acre Lundy / Trans Technology site is located at 1 Robert Lane, Glen Head, south of Todd Estates and adjacent to the railroad tracks on the north side of Glen Head Road behind the stores on the block just west of the tracks.

As stated in the DEC notices of December 27, “The Town of Oyster Bay, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Petition of Dumond Enterprises, LLC, and Trans Technology Corp. for a Change of Zone may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) must be prepared. The action involves a change of zone to allow construction of 16 single family residences and 47 townhouse units.”

The DEC contact is William Fonda, DEC Region I, Stony Brook (631-444-0350); the TOB contact is Aldona Lawson, TEQR Division, Town Environmental Quality Review Division, Syosset (516-677-5717).

I am so glad to find this information posted on this blog site. I am very interested in attending the DEC meeting regarding the Lundy site on March 2. The Nassau County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) can provide soils information about the site to the Town of Oyster Bay should they require such. The SWCD works with municipal officials, county agencies and private landowners on erosion control measures, stormwater information and water quality issues in the county. We are not regulatory, but provide technical advice on these issues. Thank you so much for posting this important information. I look forward to attending the meeting on March 2.
