Congoleum demolition on Sloan Rd Hamilton NJ
Residents in Hamilton, NJ, Mercer County are very worried. They are worried because their leadership again remains silent on a critical issue.
For several months the old Congoleum site on Sloan Rd has been in demolition mode. Over the past week a unique thing has been happening.
THE GEESE ARE DYING on Sloan Road!!
There are numerous dead geese scattered near the site on a daily basis. Why are all the geese all of the sudden dying since the active demolition at the site? We have not had a lot of rain and on numerous days during residents daily exercise runs,there are dust clouds that blow through the neighborhood from the site. It's overwhelming.
Initially, during the demolition there were water trucks out there, but that lasted just a few days. The team drivers driving the demo equipment are also not wearing protective gear. That is not acceptable. They are being exposed to all the toxins on that site. Residents were under the impression that there was a lot of soil, water and other remediation to be done prior to demolition. Everyone is very surprised to see the demo taking place at the expediated rate that it is.
The residents of the Cornell Heights in Mercer County, Hamilton Township, area deserve a SAFE ENVIRONMENT! the lack of continued response from the leadership is not acceptable. So residents reached out to the DEP and they look forward to their response.
We hope to see in the near future a detailed report and update on what is going on at the site remediation. They have also asked the DEP what they are doing to ensure the safety of the surrounding Miry Run area, and the waters surrounding the area, since the demolition began.
