Melanie Lekocevic in the Greene County News reports that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation says the state will soon resume removal of the remaining copper- and zinc-contaminated soil at the American Valve manufacturing site, at 170 Mansion St. in Coxsackie. At one time the Greene County IDA considered a project for subsidized housing on the location. The DEC will soon move the contaminated soil into a secure, capped landfill already on the site. The contaminated soil is then covered by clean topsoil and re-seeded. A permanent gravel service road will be built along the western edge of the property, at Cato Street. “Removing this material and adding it to the site’s constructed landfill will complete the cleanup of the property and leave it fit for residential use,” according to the DEC report.
