DEC says Damage Protected Wetlands from Beaver Dams? Not Toxic Landfill?
April 10, 2017
We believe these photos are extremely important to this experience, and has many amazing aspects about them. Theres two concerning aspects relating to this set of photos.
First off is the crystal clear damage, and then the DEC excuse that will really leave you wondering. After hearing so many of the lamest excuses ever heard, (even from a 2year old child) the DEC excuse almost takes 1st place as the most ridiculous. These photos were taken when both neighbors of the landfill took a boat ride to see the very obvious damage from the toxic dumping, and witnessed the impact to our Nationally/Federally/NYS Protected Wetlands. It is crystal clear where the dumping on the toxic landfill property is. We are very grateful the neighbors put an end to the landfill owners intent of extending his property all the way across our waters, but there is still a tragic extent of damage already done. It's damage that will continue to increase as this illegal dumping of toxic debris continues to sit into our protected waters, and rot directly down into the waters. The slope of the entire toxic landfill, all runs down straight to the waters. So even the large holes filled of many types of debris, will also wash down into the waters with rain. The witnessed air conditioners, and refrigerator's will eventually rust out, for the dangerous fluids to run into our waters as well. The other very amazing issue about the evident damage on the landfill property, is how the Region 4 DEC is protecting this landfill. I'm still amazed our own (DEC) Department of Environmental Conservation is stating the damage only on this landfill property, is from a couple beaver dams far down-stream? Yes! 2 small Beaver dams far down stream is responsible for all the death to the trees only across the toxic landfill, and its effects to the; -Aquatic life in the waters. Like the absence, and death to algae. Lilly pads, any plant life in the surrounding waters near the illegal toxic dumping. Trees only dead along landfill property? All this damage only on the landfill property, and Protected Wetlands could Not be the result of the admitted large tractor trailer loads, dumping through many nights directly into the waters, of illegally transported toxic debris, admitted to be from Long Island/NYC? Such strategic little beavers to only damage the Landfill property, water life, trees, vegetation around the illegal debris? Honestly, If the contamination can create this damage, kill trees, etc. Then what damage, has it truly caused to the young neighboring children's bodies?
