Issues related to the RCRA process
The USEPA and the NYSDEC have made available the RFI Report concerning the former FMC property located near the corner of Route 31 (Rochester Rd.) and Vernon St. known as the Former FMC R&D Facility. This property has been used for commercial purposes and is privately owned, not by FMC

The RFI report, Volume III, documents the results of environmental investigations (soil sampling and analysis) that has been conducted on since 1973. Click here to download and review this document.

The USEPA and the NYSDEC will open a comment period for anyone to submit written comments concerning the RFI report from March 3 to April 2, 2014. Only written comments are requested and it does not appear there will be an open comment session in Middleport.

Written comments should be mailed to:
Michael Infurna
EPA Project manager
290 Broadway
New York, New York 10007-1866

E-mail: infurna.michael@epamail.epa.gov


In addition to the EPA/DEC study, Niagara County Department of Economic Development retained a consultant to perform a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) at the property. A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment was performed in 2007. The phase II study was conducted to identify the level of environmental contamination and to determine feasibility of remediation and redevelopment. The EPA/DEC study looked only at soils at the site, however the Niagara County ESA sampled soils and groundwater. Also an inventory of remaining containers and materials in and out of containers was performed along with an asbestos and lead-based paint survey of the existing buildings

Issues related to the RCRA process
Senator Maziarz and Assembly Woman Corwin submitted a guest view to the Lockport Union Sun & Journal which appeared in the Thursday, September 26, 2013 edition. It may also have appeared in other local newspapers such as the Medina Journal-Register.

The view is in support of a less drastic approach to remediation in Middleport and suggests the only person who can change the remedy decision made by the DOH/DEC is Governor Cuomo.
