Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the release of a landmark engineering and groundwater modeling investigation, as well as the beginning of a public comment period on a proposed Amended Record of Decision to fully contain and treat the plume of contamination caused by industrial waste from U.S. Navy and Northrop Grumman manufacturing facilities in Oyster Bay, Nassau County. The Department of Environmental Conservation's new comprehensive investigation of the nearly four-mile long and two-mile wide underground plume confirms that construction, long-term operation and maintenance of an estimated $585 million full containment and treatment system is feasible and can effectively halt the further spread of contaminants.
