Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Former Fort Slocum (NY)
Brownfields projects to receive state funding

Mid-Hudson News (NY)
October 1-2, 2005 

New York?s Environmental Restoration Program, under the Clean
Water/Clean Air Bond Act, is going to fund a couple of brownfields
remediation projects in the Hudson Valley.


The city first acquired the property in 1967 upon closure of the Fort
Slocum Military Base. Consolidated Edison took ownership in 1968, but
the city reacquired the property in 1976. The city/county partnership
plans to remediate the property prior to transferring ownership to
Westchester County, which plans to redevelop the island as a public
park. Historical sources of contamination may be attributable to the
prior storage of transformers, several on-site aboveground and
underground storage tanks, a former on-site incinerator, use and storage
of pesticides, and landfill activities. The U.S. Army Corps is currently
funding a number of activities including building demolition, debris
removal, establishment of a staging area, and removal of
asbestos-containing materials.
