DEC and DOH are committed to supervising a careful and thorough cleanup of the Study Area and other locations outside the Study Area which potentially have similar concerns. The investigation and cleanup are being completed to address potential exposure to contaminants above the NYS residential soil clean up objective (primarily arsenic, cadmium, lead and semi-volatile organic compounds).

As with previous in person availability sessions the agencies make themselves available to answer your questions, concerns and interest in the ongoing environmental activities in the Study Area. Project experts from DEC, DOH, Corning Incorporated and partnering consultants will be available to provide detailed information on the extensive work completed this summer, the ongoing work, and plans for future investigation and cleanup activities including areas in the surrounding community. We look forward to addressing your questions and concerns.
