It will host a public meeting on the proposal from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 23, at the Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County's Rundel building, 115 South Avenue.
The clean-up plan focuses on removing silver sediment from an area near the Kings Landing wastewater treatment plant, the shores of the riverbend south of Riverside Cemetery, and a two-acre wetland near the Turning Basin, according to a DEC fact sheet.
Under the plan, about 29,000 cubic yards of dredged sediment would be hauled to a disposal facility. The plan calls for post-cleanup monitoring.
Silver is a heavy metal that's an essential component of photographic products such as film and paper. It can be detrimental to aquatic species in large amounts, though the DEC claims the levels found in the clean-up sites posed a relatively low risk to people and the aquatic environment.
As part of that agreement, new tenants and owners of the park are absolved of responsibility for Kodak's historic pollution.
The DEC is accepting comments on the proposed clean-up plan through November 15.
