The owner of the former DeWitt Clinton Hotel in Albany, N.Y., will be required under a state Superfund agreement to install a depressurization system to vent toxic vapors. Nearly 2,100 tons of polluted soil have been cleared from the site, which is near an area planned for redevelopment as a convention center. The hotel was found to have elevated levels of several chemicals, including two carcinogens. It is set for a $48.5 million rehabilitation project.
