Oceanside/Town of Hempstead Dump


I live in Rockville Centre, NY and the next town over, Oceanside, has a dump in it that is now in the process of recovering natural gas from the decomposing garbage. I used to work at a clam bar that is located right next to the dump (and no, the clams were not taken from the water next to the dump) but I do know for a fact that the water around the dump and the power plant connected to it has unusually warm water all year round.
