BUFFALO, NY -- The developers behind a high-profile project on Buffalo's Outer Harbor had to pay a $50,000 fine to the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recently, according to a document released by the organization Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper.
The document released Wednesday shows Queen City Landing had to pay a fine of $50,000 after a concrete wall from the Freezer Queen plant collapsed into Lake Erie in November.
In a statement, Queen City Landing says they are complying and actually replacing their legal and environmental consultants to address the DEC's concerns.
They also said they plan to resume remediation work next week at the site, and then pending DEC approval, they hope to move on to actual construction work.
