A plan to clean up contamination at the site of a proposed redevelopment of a Niagara Street gas station is under review by state environmental regulators.
Petroleum and radiological contamination has been reported at 710 Niagara St., according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation. The site has three, 6,000-gallon gasoline tanks underground. The radiological contamination is from what's known as "slag," which was used as backfill.
Plans for the property, owned by Surjit Singh and Bajwa Property Holdings LLC, call for the gas station to be reopened, along with a convenience store and restaurant franchise.
Environmental testing had been announced in June.
