Issues related to the RCRA process
Due to additional questions from Middleport residents about the FMC proposed Corrective Action Management Unit (CAMU), FMC has submitted an article for posting on the CIG web site. It explains what type of material will be placed in the CAMU and presents questions and answers pertaining to the use of a bottom liner, the environmental effect on the area, soil source, if it's hazardous and long term responsibility. Click the Read Full Article link below to read the article. Please post your comments at the end.

Issues related to the RCRA process
In 2003, FMC contracted an outside firm (Exponent) to investigate the actual human exposure to arsenic in soil in the Middleport area. During that summer urine and toenail samples were taken from 439 Middleport residents which included 77 children under 7 year old. This represented more than a quarter of the population in Middleport and a little less than half of the children under 7 who lived in the area at that time. Tests were also performed on samples of vegetables from area gardens, house dust was collected and soil samples analyzed. The detailed report from Exponent is in the document repository of this web site in the Arsenic in Soil - Related Documents.

It should be noted the government agencies have declined to accept the results of this study. The Community Input Group is seeking a clarification of the reasons.

Issues related to the RCRA process
The Corrective Measures Study (CMS) work plan for the Air Deposition Area is now in the document repository. You can find it in the RCRA Document Library of the Document Repository in the Main Download section. There are two parts, click here to go to them directly: Part 1 and Part 2.

The air deposition area consists of the residential homes between Main St. and the Niagara/Orleans county line and the canal to Route 31 (Rochester Rd.). The CMS does not include the School property since that has been remediated.

An overview of the RFI/CMS process was presented to the CIG at their March 2007 meeting. Since some progress has been made toward the next steps in this process, the points he addressed are pertinent.
