Town of Islip Begins Recovery Process; Work Begins for Removal of Asbestos at Clayton Street Fields in Central Islip

The Clayton Street fields are the first site to be remediated and are part of a comprehensive remediation and recovery program that also include a small area at Bay Shore Marina, as well as at Roberto Clemente Park, where thousands of tons of unauthorized and contaminated material was discovered this past April.
