ENDWELL (WBNG) - On Thursday, a public hearing was held at the Town of Union offices showing potential plans of redevelopment at 600 Main St. in the Town of Union, where BAE Systems was before the flood of 2011 destroyed the facility.

The Air Force, which cleaned up the site after the damage, was required to present in the hearing. The site, referred to as Air Force Plant 59, has contamination according to the (DEC) Department of Environmental Conservation.

Brian Jankauskas, the project manager of the site who works in the DEC’s Division of Environmental Remediation spoke to 12 News about soil contamination that remains at the site.

“The soil contamination is related primarily to the sub grade material to the parking lot,” explained Jankauskas.
