Right, fully-loaded trucks departing the site will first be covered with thick plastic by workers manning these two scaffolds. The entire truck bed is lined with plastic before the dirt is loaded. Then, it is covered with foam and the plastic is folded over the load. Local political leaders and activists listen as National Grid officials point out the steps to digging and disposing of the toxic soil at the former LILCO Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) site at Beach 108 Street and Beach Channel Drive. Officials took the locals through the process step by step and then answered numerous questions. A protective dam all along the site separates Beach Channel Drive from the toxic soil. The dam is driven far underground. The dig site is covered with a large tent that will be moved to cover each quadrant as the dirt is excavated. The entire tent is cleaned of dirty air by a filtration system, shown here.
