GENESEO – The removal phase of the soil from the site of a Main Street Ford dealership that operated before the 1950’s has begun, and the toxic soil is being transported and dumped within a few hundred yards of not only the Genesee River but farmland that is protected by the Genesee Valley Conservancy.
The GeneseeSun.com followed a dump truck loaded with dug-up material from the construction site about a half mile to Rte. 63 just south of the Genesee River, where piles of contaminated soil has been spread.
The site is a few hundred yards from land that is protected by the Genesee Valley Nature Conservancy and is near the Genesee River.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation forced the Village of Geneseo to remove the soil as part of the Main Street project, saying that the soil is too contaminated to remain under Main Street.
