EPA to fund Hollow site cleanup in Rensselaer

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday that they have provided $200,000 in funding to the city of Rensselaer to aid in the clean-up of the Hollow site on Third Street, "an undeveloped and under-used" parcel. The site was used as a firing range from 1894 until 1938 and is thus contaminated with metals.

The funding, through EPA's Brownfields Program -- separate from the state Brownsfield program run by the DEC -- will be used to support community outreach, according to the press release.
