Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino has announced that the Town of Oyster Bay, together with state and local organizations, will host an educational hearing regarding cleanup efforts of the Grumman Navy Plume this Wednesday, May 24, at Bethpage High School beginning at 7 p.m. The school is at 10 Cherry Ave., Bethpage,
“After 13 years of working to get New York State and our governors on board with cleaning up the contamination in our groundwater, we are finally getting close to making this a reality,” Saladino said. “I am appreciative to be working with the residents, the Bethpage Water District, and the leaders of the Bethpage community in an effort to fully remediate and finally clean up the contamination of the Grumman Navy Plume.”
Saladino said there is an urgent need for immediate action.
“Now is the time to get this done, while the option of hydraulic containment is still a possibility,” he said. “The clock is ticking and this Town will lead the fight for action to protect the safety and welfare residents, the quality and quantity of our water supply and the interests of our taxpayers.”
