The Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) issued in July by the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court prohibiting all mining activities at the Sand Land Mine has been suspended by an upstate judge. The motion will be reargued on September 19. The NCC is part of the lawsuit with the Group for the East End, the Suffolk County Health Department, the Citizens’ Campaign for the Environment and Assemblyman Fred Thiele, Jr., against the DEC’s decision to grant the Sand Land Mine a permit to excavate 40 feet deeper and closer to our aquifer for another 8 years. (The Health Department’s water tests determined that the operations at the Mine contaminated our aquifer with arsenic, radioactive nuclei, carcinogens, pesticides, excessive lead, iron, manganese, and other heavy metals. The aquifer is everyone’s water supply. Formerly the Mine processed construction and demolition debris along with vegetative wastes at the site in Noyac.)
Next Meeting: October 15. (This is one week later than our usual 2nd second Tuesday meeting to accommodate our Jewish friends who will observe Yom Kippur.)
