State agencies will oversee an investigation slated to begin later this year regarding the extent of contamination at the former site of two knitting mills in Ridgewood, it was announced.

The Times Newsweekly received last Tuesday, Dec. 24, information from the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) regarding a "draft investigation work plan" currently being created for the former Philru Knitting Mills located inside neighboring one-story structures at 1614-1632 Madison St., between Myrtle and Wyckoff avenues.

Public comments on the plan are being accepted by the DEC through Friday, Jan. 10.

According to the DEC, the investigative work will be performed by 1614 Madison Partners LLC, under supervision by the agency and the state Health Department, as part of the Brownfields Cleanup Program, which offers incentives to property owners to clean up contaminated locations for reuse and redevelopment.
