DEC taking public comments on Alplaus housing project. Residents oppose proposed plan as too big

The state Department of Environmental Conservation is starting its own review of plans to clean up the contaminated site along the Mohawk River where a controversial multi-unit housing development is being proposed.

DEC is seeking public comment on a brownfields cleanup program application filed by Prime Mohawk LLC of Cohoes, the entity that wants to build a 228-unit development on 84 acres at Mohawk Avenue and Maritime Drive. If DEC approves, the program could provide state income tax credits to the developer for cleanup of the former industrial site, so that condominiums or apartments could be built there.

A roughly 34-acre portion of the site is contaminated with PCBs, petroleum residues, volatile organics and metals including mercury, lead and silver, according to DEC. By all accounts, all the contamination has to be removed before any kind of residential development can occur there.
