The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), held a public meeting on December 9th to discuss the proposed remediation for contamination related to the Ozone Industries State Superfund Site. The site consists of eight bays beneath the abandoned elevated Long Island Railroad (LIRR) located across the street from 101-32 101st Street in Ozone Park.

New York's State Superfund Program (SSF) is responsible for identifying sites suspected of being inactive hazardous waste disposal sites. Sites in the program are categorized as those that pose a significant threat both to public health and the environment. During the course of remediation, a proposed site will go through an investigation, evaluation, cleanup and then monitoring. NYSDEC generally attempts to identify parties responsible for site contamination and require cleanup before committing State funds.
