Issues related to the RCRA process
The public comment period has ended. The agencies should be replying to all those who submitted comments within the next few months.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the NYS Department of Health (DOH) will be holding public involvement sessions regarding some of FMC's off site environmental investigations. The areas of concern for the open sessions will be the Air Deposition Area which is south of the canal to Rochester Rd. (RT 31) and between Main St. and the Orleans County line and the second area of concern are the properties transversed by Culvert 105 to Pearson Rd. These two areas are covered by Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Facilities Investigation (RFI) Volumes I, II and IV.

The sessions will be held at the Middleport Fire Hall, 28 Main St. on Wednesday, June 10, 2009, where the public can discuss the investigations, ask questions and make comments concerning the contents of the three volumes or any other matters pertaining to the remediation activities in Middleport. There will be two sessions. One from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM will be informal where the public can talk, one-on-one, with members of the agencies or the FMC Corporation. The other session will be held from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM and will start off with brief presentations by the agencies and FMC and then be opened to the public so verbal comments can be made and be placed in the record. Written comments can also be handed to the agencies during both sessions.

A written comment period will run from May 18 to July 2, 2009 where the public can send in their comments to the agencies. These comments should be mailed to:

Mr. Matt Mortifolio
NYSDEC Project Manager
625 Broadway
Albany, NY 12233-7258

To view the text, maps and data tables of the RFI Volumes click here.

The complete volumes are available in the FMC Document Repository at the Middleport Village Library, 9 Vernon St. or at the FMC House at 17 Vernon St.
