Didn't this happen a decade ago? The picture below, taken by Peter Jung, shows the tent erected over the cleanup site in the early part of this century.

A public hearing on the project will take place on February 28 at 6 p.m. at the Hudson Area Library. The public comment period, during which DEC accepts written comments, begins today and runs through March 19.
