The Week In Review-The Weekend Ahead

Public Hearing Monday on Beaver Dam Lake Dam Reconstruction

The Orange County Legislature will meet at the Legislative Chambers in the Government Center 255 Main Street, Goshen on Tuesday May 22 at 5:15 pm to receive public comment on the proposal for the increase and improvement of facilities of Beaver Dam Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District.

The reconstruction project is being budgeted for up to $5,000,000.

Water will be emptied from the lake into the Moodna Creek.  The lake had shown some levels of PFOS/PFOA contamination, particularly at the end nearest Stewart International Airport.   Several inquiries to the NYS DEC about the potential benefit of retesting the toxic sediment before emptying the lake into the Moodna Creek  have remained unanswered.
