BRENTWOOD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Initial tests on the groundwater near a Long Island park allegedly used as an illegal dumping site have found contaminants.
The water near Roberto Clemente Park in Brentwood contained elevated levels of lead, cobalt and zinc, WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall. The report by Enviroscience Consultants Inc. of Ronkonkoma, however, cautioned that no definitive connections could be drawn from the tests. All groundwater is treated to remove contaminants, and no contaminants have been found in public wells so far, Newsday reported.
More tests will be conducted.
