Sooner, Rather Than Later
Tonight, June 20 at the South High School Auditorium at 7:30 p.m., a presentation will be made to the Board of Trustees of the Great Neck Public Schools and the public, by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the New York State Health Department (SHD) regarding the next proposed step in cleaning the plume of contamination that has traveled quietly and steadily underground through the aquifer system from the former UNISYS site on Lakeville Road and Marcus Avenue in a north/northwest direction. In a preliminary meeting on June 12 with community leaders, Ray Cowen, P.E., regional director of Region One, DEC stated that the agency has decided, with the willingness and cooperation from the Lockheed Martin Corporation, to put the off-site cleanup on a "fast track" because the number one goal is to prevent the plume from reaching the pristine and critical underground reservoir in the North Hills Special Groundwater Protection Area (SGPA).
