Discussion related to community issues
About one year ago, FMC proposed a Correction Action Manage Unit (CAMU) to be located on the east side of their property in Middleport. This unit would contain arsenic contaminated soils removed during the various remediation projects for permanent storage. These projects include village properties as well as the tributary (creek) and culvert running through the village. Under environmental regulation, no hazardous materials would be stored at the site. The government agencies (DEC/DOH/EPA) will have to approve FMC's application before a CAMU could be established. The formal application was submitted in March of this year.

Soils which have been removed during previous remediation activities such as the school yard, Vernon St. and Park Ave. are now located in the proposed CAMU area. This current soil storage area is considered temporary. The application to the agencies is for approval of a design for a CAMU which would be permanent. The application as it was submitted is in the document repository of this web site. Click here to go there directly. Click the "Read Full Article" link below for more of this story.

In the document repository (select from the main menu), under the sub heading "Document Repository" then under "Meeting Presentations" you will find a presentation made at the May, 2007 CIG meeting. In that document are three maps of Middleport which show properties that would get remediated if the trigger number was 20, 30 or 40 PPM (the ones in green). Look at those maps and find out about your property.

Information and news about the CIG
Over a span of more than a decade, Middleport residents have attended many of the public meetings hosted by FMC and the Agencies (DEC, EPA and DOH) in regard to the o­n-going environmental investigation and remediation. As part of the overall RCRA environmental program, these meetings were held to keep the community informed of the progress and of the work that took place as part of this program.
