Issues related to the RCRA process
FMC and the government agencies have come to an agreement on how to proceed with the CMS for the Air Deposition Area and Culvert 105. There were 4 requests from the list of directives by the Agencies for changes to FMC's CMS report which FMC did not accept in their letter to the Agencies dated December 10, 2010.

In a letter dated December 21, 2010, FMC accepted the Agencies' modified directives and therefore avoided any action that would lead to filing for dispute resolution under the current Oder of Consent. FMC has set a target date for May 20, 2011 for completion of the revised CMS report. At that time there will probably be another review and comment by the Agencies before an agreed to report can be ready for public review.

The MCIG does not anticipate a need for the next meeting until the May time frame. An announcement will be made at the appropriate time. Updates will be made monthly using the "Keeping You Posted" notes available in the Document Repository under Meeting Materials.

Information and news about the CIG

Assemblywoman Jane Corwin met with members of the Middleport Community Input Group on Friday, August 6, 2010, to discuss their concerns with the arsenic cleanup project in the village and surrounding areas and the Corrective Measures Study report submitted to the Government Agencies by FMC for review and comment. In the photo at right is Bill Arnold, MCIG Chairman; Julie Maedl, Village Mayor and Assemblywoman Corwin.

Some of the topics discussed were the slow progress and length of time the project has been going on, the belief the Agencies will not look at the Corrective Measures Study objectively, the proposed CAMU and the lack of communications between the Agencies and residents along with the lack of resident involvement in negotiations.

The Agencies responses to comments made during the open public session are available in the Document Repository.
Click here to download a copy.

There were only two written comments submitted during the period and there were no verbal comments made during the session at the fire hall.

There were, however, at least two questions or comments made during one-on-one discussions between residents and representatives from the agencies at the fire hall. Even though these comments may be pertinent to the subject of cleanup and safety, they are treated as private discussions by the Agencies and are not included.
