State to hold public forum on remediation plan for illegal dumping in Brentwood park

Long Island Newsday (NY)
September 30, 2014

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will host a public forum next week to hear the public's concerns and to explain a proposal for remediating the estimated 50,000 tons of toxin-tainted debris illegally dumped in Brentwood's Roberto Clemente Park.

Community members, local advocacy groups and elected officials have held a number of protests, vigils and forums since news broke of the illegal dumping scandal on April 22. At nearly the same time, Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota subpoenaed records from the Town of Islip relating to a soccer field project at the 27.9-acre park. The Brentwood park, along with three other sites, remains the subject of a criminal investigation by the district attorney, who impaneled a special grand jury last month into illegal dumping.
