GLEN COVE, N.Y. (AP) - Federal environmental regulators in New York City have proposed additional cleanup efforts at the site of a $1 billion development in Long Island that once housed a metal-processing plant, salvage yard, oil storage tanks and a city dump.

Newsday reports (http://nwsdy.li/1ZeJE3G ) the federal Environmental Protection Agency says soil tests found some areas are contaminated beyond allowable levels at the site of the Garvies Point waterfront project in Glen Cove.

Agency officials previously said the 26 acres of industrial land had been remediated enough for development.

The new cleanup proposal is scheduled to be released on June 13.

The EPA estimates about 8,500 cubic yards of soil must be removed.

Those remediation efforts are expected to be finished this year.
