TASK FORCE ON HOOSICK FALLS COULD REPLACE HEARINGS - POLITICO New York's Scott Waldman: State Sen. Kathy Marchione said Monday she wants to form a task force that could examine chemical pollution issues across New York in light of the water crisis in Hoosick Falls. Marchione, a Republican who represents the Rensselaer County village where hundreds of people were exposed to a toxic chemical used in industrial manufacturing, said she was open to legislative hearings to examine the state, federal and local response to the situation in Hoosick Falls. However, she stopped short of calling for them and said a task force would allow all sides to work together more effectively. http://politico.pro/1WLXBrP

Columbia researchers to survey city litter for DEP Back

By Conor Skelding | 06/14/2016 05:19 AM EDT

Researchers at Columbia University will spend the next three months surveying what other people toss away. The research into litter will contribute to a Department of Environmental Protection study of how trash travels from the city's streets to its waterways.

Columbia researchers will "[d]evelop and test a data collection protocol ... to obtain detailed information on trash origin and composition," a summary of the project states.

The project will use the protocol "to track trash to specific points of sale, identify brand items and record visual observations of conditions that could influence transportation of trash to storm drains," the summary states. "This study will help inform the control of floatable and settleable trash and debris component of the Stormwater Management Plan."

The project will "help meet the OneNYC goal of Zero Waste to landfills by 2030," the summary says.

Columbia professors Ester Fuchs, in public affairs, and Patricia Culligan, in civil engineering, will lead the project.

Culligan said the project emerged from a survey conducted by six master's students in environmental science and public policy. The public policy students developed "a survey tool" and the science students developed a predictive model for "trash hot spots based on six years of 311 trash complaints, tax records and other data," she said.

The summer project will survey about 25 sites throughout the city, "three times in wet weather and three times in dry weather," between July 1 and Sept. 30, according to Culligan.

The university will also create a smartphone app "to facilitate and encourage data collection by community groups, students and other citizen scientists."
