Time and water can do many things, including hide a 500-gallon propane tank. Workers from the Village of Margaretville, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and workers from the environmental clean-up firm Op-Tech, removed just such a tank from Margaretville’s Binnekill stream last week.
The tank was there, forgotten, for at least the last 20 years, but only recently started to leak.
Village Code Enforcement Officer Pat Davis says people recently began smelling a gas odor in the skate park and near Ming Moon Restaurant.
