3. The FMC "Keeping You Posted' update. Click here to download.

4. The DEC internet source for a Buffalo News article concerning what they called "Nasty Sites" in Niagara County. The report claimed FMC was such a site and they had off site ground water contamination. Also the article stated the plant was used for disposal of pesticides without mention of pesticide manufacturing. The reporter used only the negative parts of the DEC information. The DEC admits they need to better keep such internet pages of information more up to date. Click here to download.

5. A DOH Biological Monitoring Study done in 1987 using Roy-Hart school students using hair and urine samples to detect levels of arsenic and lead. The results were then compared with results of tests using students from a school in Greenbush, NY, near Albany. The results showed no statistical differences. The agencies have stated one reason they did not recognize the Exponent study which tested Middleport residents for arsenic was hair samples were not used and they felt those samples would be more accurate. Hair samples were used in this DOH study. Click here to download.

6. A DOH Incidence of Cancer study done in 1987 in Middleport comparing expected cancer cases with actual occurrences. Seventeen of the most common cancer types for men and women were studied. No statistical increase in cancer cases over expected were found in this study. Click here to Download.

Keep in mind the two above studies were done before any remediation of residential property or the school football field was done.

Information and news about the CIG
The June meeting of the Community Input Group will be different than our usual meeting. Instead of one part with updates from FMC and the agencies and the second part a discussion between CIG members only, June's meeting will be devoted to a question and answer session with the agencies. The questions have been submitted to the EPA, DEC and DOH. They include many which have been asked by Middleport citizens over the years. The meeting will begin at 5:30 PM at the Masonic Hall and end around 7:30. The usual lite meal will be available. All citizens are welcome to attend. To review the questions, click on the "Read Full Article" link below. It is expected the agencies will send their answers in advance so they can be reviewed prior to the meeting. When received, they will be posted on the site as well.
