News Release April 1, 2013 New York State Department of Environmental ConservationDEC Selects Remedy for Cleanup of Contamination at Northrop Grumman Site in Bethpage
Remedy Cleans Up Hot Spots and Restores Bethpage ParkAfter carefully considering nearly 200 public comments, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has selected a remedy to clean up contamination at Operable Unit 3 of the Northrop Grumman - Bethpage Facility site (Former Grumman Settling Ponds) in Bethpage, DEC Commissioner Joe Martens announced today. The remedy requires the cleanup of hot spots of contaminated groundwater that will significantly lessen the threat of migration to public drinking water supply wells. In addition, Bethpage Park will be cleaned up and restored for future use.
"DEC listened to and carefully considered the concerns of the public before selecting a remedy to address the long-standing contamination at Northrop Grumman site," Commissioner Martens said. "The remedy protects Long Island's drinking water by addressing hot spots of contaminated groundwater. The remedy also will restore the park so it can be used in the future. These actions help protect public health and the environment of Nassau County."
"Ensuring that the people of Long Island have access to safe and clean drinking water is vitally important to EPA," said Judith A. Enck, EPA Regional Administrator. "We appreciate the decision by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to move forward on this groundwater cleanup plan and will continue to work with the state, the local water districts and the public on finding a long-term solution to this water contamination problem."
