Halt in Work at Glenwood Site Until Runoff Is Controlled
The New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation reports that a Notice of Violation has been issued to the owners of the construction site at the northwest corner of Glenwood Road and Kissam Lane for beginning work without a NYS SPDES permit, see Glenwood Landing Bids Farewell to a Piece of History, May 25; Stormwater Controls Implemented at GWL Site, May 25; Stormwater Runoff Controls Needed at Glenwood Landing Site, May 12. These permits are designed to control runoff, a major source of pollution and silt build up in Hempstead Harbor and virtually all other waterways. A temporary stop work order has been issued until the site has been stabilized and the conditions required for a permit are satisfied.
