Tomeo Levittown Tribune (NY) September 4, 2009Over 10 years, three superintendents and countless public meetings later, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has selected the final remedy for the lead contamination issue in the basement of Island Trees High School.
Working cooperatively with the New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the Nassau County Department of Health (NCDH), a decision was made after "careful consideration" states the August Remedial Alternative Report (RAR) from the DEC.
The following is a summary of the chosen remedy - Capping: ... The School District will restrict access to pipe tunnel area.This remediation process is part of an Order of Consent the school district entered into with the DEC in April 2006. The area of concern is approximately 5,230 square feet in the high school's basement and is comprised of pipe and branch tunnels and access spaces. In the past, the district has implemented soil removal, room and tunnel closures, warning signs, double-locked doors and plastic polyethylene sheeting.
