Amazing video from waters, showing Evident Damage to Wetlands
April 9, 2017
This video had a large impact on me. This is a video of both neighboring residents taking a boat out in the waters of these NYS/Nationally Protected Wetlands to visibly see what damage has been created from this toxic landfill, that has been created next to their Homes, and dumped directly into these protected waters.
The death of the trees in this video only starts, and ends at the property line of this business that has dumped Illegally transported construction/demolition debris into these waters. The entire business property has been accepting, and dumping many various types of very questionable toxic debris all over the property. However most of the debris dumped here as the new banks of these wetlands, were debris transported by tractor trailers, through out many nights, to the Upstate Catskill, NY region. The debris admittedly coming from NYC/Long Island appears to be the destruction of Hurricane Sandy down in those areas.
With severe Cadmium poisoning that has come up for one of the Mothers residing next to this property, hazardous levels of Lead, and many other Health Ailments for both neighboring families.
Speaking with a concerned individual with an agency, it appears that the toxic debris here in the wetlands may be the Hurricane destruction debris from some type of Industry, or Factory that was leveled during the Hurricane. It was removed from Long Island/NYC to be Illegally transported, and dumped here in the beautiful Catskill's, and our Protected Wetlands. It was dumped onto a property that is snuggled in-between two family homes, dumped into the wetlands as the border of the back of the landfill property, instead of being taken to a proper Solid Waste Facility, or Recycling center that FEMA paid Big $$$ for. This same type of dumping was admitted to being dumped up the road from this landfill, and also down on Rte 9W, in Kingston, NY. There is a long list of Municipalities, and Environmental agencies that are going to Great Lengths to keep this property from being uncovered, or simply tested, and I mean GREAT LENGTHS to keep their dirty secrets buried. Even going to disgusting lengths to keep the children from getting the Health care they desperately require, from the exposure to Industrial Toxins.
