Dunn Dump Still Dumping
With an expired permit and the blessings of DEC, the Dunn Dump continues churning up known environmental and health hazards, in a residential neighborhood 500 feet from a school. The Rensselaer Environmental Coalition was formed in a futile attempt to prevent the siting of the dump in that location in the first place, and has been fighting it every step of the way. Bob Welton of the REC summarizes the ongoing saga for HMM producer Cathy Silber, and previews the group’s August 25 press conference, at which important new findings about DEC’s approval process will be released.
