More Testing Delays Park Reopening
Contamination inspection in Bethpage also postpones cleanup

The complete reopening of Bethpage Community Park, sections of which
have been closed for almost a year because of soil contamination, will
be delayed by more environmental testing, state and town officials said

The state Department of Environmental Conservation held information
sessions yesterday at Bethpage Community Center to discuss a plan by
Northrop Grumman Corp. to investigate contamination at the 19-acre park
in Oyster Bay Town. Town officials had shut down the park in May after
soil testing on the adjacent Northrop Grumman property also revealed
elevated levels of polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, metals and other
contaminants. Sections were reopened late last year.

Northrop Grumman and the Navy are "equally responsible" for the
contamination, said DEC spokesman Mark Lowery. The Navy contracted with
the former Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corp. on defense projects.
