There is more than adequate space right there at the site to contain all the crushed rock/stone that is piled there. It takes 2 pieces of equipment to break down the rubble and spread it, then it will require additional materials to cover it. Should there be some contaminated material there a simple clay cap is the most widely used method of containment. Clay capping is a very acceptable means of containent...as for the rain washing the stone, that is the most rediculous notion Ihave ever hard of. I have handled many properties, contaminated and not and I know what I am talking about. IF the property is contaminated it needs to be controlled, not running off into the eco system. The problem is simple...the solution is simple....the powers that be are SIMPLE!
you don't know what what you are talking about. All the stone was used at the alloy building was used as hard binder and hard pack with vibratory rollers and concrete on top . And the rain water will take the place of the hydrants blowing water for weeks that has caused problems in the past like brown water being disturbed further down the line low water pressure and a big waste of treated water. And the containment you talk about is stone dust that is made when it is being broke down . and will be over seen by the DEC and they will tell you when it is safe to move to the next step

Yes, the piles are still there. The fencing is open in several areas. The place is a mes, looks like a war zone. No wonder Rodmill owners are in no rush to finish fixing their building, who would want to drive through that mess.
I see that the boat company is apparently working though. One of their boats was leaving the building at 2pm today, hmmmmmmm, wonder what is up?

When the hell are they going to haul away that landfill looking pile of a mess on Harbor way almost to where the Canal Fest was? For the name of God get rid of that mess-It was like that months ago and could have been nice for extra parking for the Canal Fest- clean that sh--it up already! What a nice scene to look at it as your attending the fair. Why doesnt the City do something about it?`
What? boats can use the building but no flea market ar you kidding? Come on Mayor get a push on cleaning that crap up! will it still be there come spring? WHy break it up just to let it sit there? is it possible environmental people cant come to a conclusion yet for Gods sake? who is responsible to get rid of that mess?

What contamination? Who said? Probable could not have gone as far as they did with out knowing if there was contamination or not to begin with. DEC phase 2 tests were done, or the Army Corp. Of Engineers would not have allowed initial digging. The site is monitored regularly by those guys. Underground asbestos was rumored to be found on the corner by Mill street, which should not have stopped the rubblization of the remainder of the site. However, leaving it there can't be healthy. Rain has nothing to do with it! Unless, you'd like to start talking about contaminating the water table and the canal.

There is actually very little contamination. What is left to address is some asbestoes wrapped wire - seems that should not be too hard to contain and remove.

Glen, you seem to have accurate info and good sense. The question now is as follows. The multi ton mound of rocks and dirt that are currently sitting above grade level is documented as being contaminated with petroleum waste. This "mound" is only partially covered and I assume is leaching into the ground beneath. There has been ZERO action by anyone, either contractor or the city, visible since July. How long can that contaminated "mound" sit there and presumably contaminate the ground below. This would bring further cost for no good reason. Is this a stall tactic by a Mayor who has openly been opposed to this project from day one? This is a time sensitive issue as I assume the grants will expire at some point. Intentional, or not, the constant long term delays are hurting needed development in that area. Action must be taken NOW.

The state completed the contamination issue and gave their full support to break down the stone and rubble. This information came from F Talerino Jr. The work was supposed to be completed last spring.
The real problem is Joe Fusco does NOT want the Rodmill owners here at all and has done everything he can to stall the opening of the building by threatening the owners and using his Department heads (i.e., codes, fire department) do to so. Mr Fusco has an axe to grind and now he has a lawsuit he is stalling on just like the budget.
The city did NOT lend the Boat people money a bank did, that is why it is not showing on the audit. Another Joe Fiasco.
Too many small businesses are closing and too many are not being allowed to open, Mr Fusco, this is NOT your royal kingdom, let go of your childish vendettas and help the city instead of your wallet!

This development is critical for Rome. It will bring much needed commerce to the Dominick St area. The "stalls" are an outrage. First time a month was wasted because of a fence. Second was a small bit of asbestos found in an isolated corner. Then there was a oil spill discovered. Again in an isolated area. Each one of these issues took FAR TO LONG to address. There has been NO WORK done down there for months. The net result is the city ALMOST cleared a parking lot in one working season. By industry standard, that is laughable. There is still much work to be done and a VERY short time to do it in. The problem is two fold. First, can the city complete the task at hand in the time allowed before these grants expire. Second, why were the delays so long on the work that was done. Im hopeful that the city can doubletalk the state and get an extension on the grants. This does nothing for the Dominick st businesses that have to pay expenses each month and need the additional commerce NOW. It is apparent that some feet dragging is taking place that the TAXPAYING BUSINESS PEOPLE are getting the short end of the stick on. Maybe a highly advertised "taxpayers strike" would get some attention to this problem. Im sure some county and state officials would be interested in the lack of progress that affects their concerns as well. Gov. Cuomo is very pro business development and Im sure he would not be happy after being informed of this issue.

where is this "much needed commerce to the Dominick St area"gonna come from? the 3 boats that dock at the barge overnight? the welfare scum ? the prision? You are dreaming if you really think people are going to dock a boat & WALK to dematteos or the fort or maybe they can tour the emply building next to the canal!..GET REAL!
