Glens Falls fight for environmental protection agency grant

Posted:

GLENS FALLS, N.Y.—A push to clean up "brownfield" sites that some call eyesores and health concerns was made in Glens Falls Thursday.

Senator Chuck Schumer stood in front of one of the sites to fight for an environments protection agency grant.

Senator Schumer said the six brownfield sites are not only hurting downtown redevelopment, but are a matter of public health.

An even bigger concern is that some of the sites are in highly concentrated residential areas and near schools.
