TEAR DOWN: Former AlTech Steel Lucas Avenue plant expected to be gone by year’s end

Dunkirk Observer (NY)
February 9, 2014

It seems like it was always there looming in the background.

If it had eyes, the Lucas Avenue Plant that housed some manufacturing operations of the former AlTech Specialty Steel company would have seen the area's athletes playing over the years at the fields across the street.

A public hearing on the LAP's future was held in October 2012 by the state Department of Environmental Conservation at Dunkirk High School. At that time, DEC officials said the building would come down in 2014.

It was explained then there were three choices for the site, with the first being to do nothing. Second would be removing all the contaminated soil to allow for unlimited reuse at an estimated cost of $17.5 million. Third was restoration for industrial or commercial reuse, which is the plan proposed. This would cost an estimated $4.6 million and remove what is considered hazardous waste.
