Grumman Groundwater Contamination to be Addressed at Meeting By Chris Boyle Bellmore Patch (NY) July 17, 2012A forum will be held to address concerns about cleanup of toxic groundwater at the former Navy aerospace site in Bethpage that is flowing southward and threatening to contaminate the drinking water supplies of residents in Bellmore.
...The meeting comes as concerned residents are pressing the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to make sure potentially cancerous toxins from the Grumman site removed before affecting water supply wells serving Wantagh, Seaford, Massapequa and Levittown. The public comment period on the state’s plan to address the Grumman cleanup ends on July 30.
The plume of wastewater at the Bethpage site that is posing a risk to residents in southeast Nassau County derives from waste that was buried and covered by Grumman going back to the 1950's. One of these plumes, called Operable Unit 3, or OU3, was discovered 22 years ago and is currently threatening to contaminate the drinking water supplies of residents in Wantagh, Seaford, Massapequa, Levittown, Bellmore and Merrick. Thursday's meeting at the Seaford Fire Department headquarters is being hosted by the Seaford Harbor Civic Association, Nassau Coalition of Civic Associations and the Massapequa Water District.
