We, the undersigned, demand that the NYS DEC hold a Public Hearing on the DEC’s granting a permit to the Sand Land Mine, a known polluter. In September, 2018, the DEC stopped the operations of the mine, citing the Suffolk County Health Department’s report that found contaminants in our groundwater from the Mine’s operations. These contaminants, including carcinogens, pesticides, radio-active chemicals and excessive lead, iron and other metals, were found in our groundwater beneath the Mine. Despite this evidence, on March 20, 2019, the DEC gave the Mine a permit to operate for 8 years and dig 40 feet deeper and closer to our groundwater. We demand an opportunity to voice our concerns and have our questions answered at a public forum immediately.
