Discussion related to community issues
FMC held an informational meeting on Tuesday, December 3, to bring village organizations up to date on plant activity and the remediation effort in and around the village.

The DEC will continue coordinating the remediation effort in 2020. To be done is State St. from Alfred to Vernon including the stub streets of William and Washington. Current information from the DEC indicates the properties on Robertson St. are clear including the two that are on State that corner with Robertson. There is also a few small areas at the school that need to be finished. 85 main Street has a new owner and will be remediated. It was not done in 2018 when that part of Main was cleaned up.

FMC will take over in 2021 with DEC over site. FMC will finish the CMS for the part of the tributary in OU5 (Francis to Pearson) which is currently being revised with changes requested by the DEC. After approval there will need to be a public comment period. FMC is looking for some flexibility in areas along the creek which are not residential. It remains to be seen if there will be any. There has been no decision on how the part of the tributary that runs under the canal will be cleaned. Actual remediation probably won't begin until 2021.

In addition, any properties the DEC began to remediate in 2020 which are not completed during the construction season will be finished by FMC in 2021.

The area on FMC property in the past referred to as the CAMU may be regraded and closed. The plan for this will need to be submitted to the DEC and if approved will have a public comment period.

FMC will continue with their effort to sample properties in the OU 6 (tributary north of Pearson Rd.) and OU 7 (Jeddo and Johnson Creek) areas during 2020. Only about 40% of property owners so far have agreed to sampling. This effort will most likely continue into 2021.

FMC continues to invest in the Middleport plant with capital improvements. There are 65 full time employees at the site with a current need for more part time employees.

Th Roy-Hart School is planning to replace the play ground and tennis courts lost to remediation the last couple of years. Remediation at the school should be competed in 2020.

The web site will have a make over including organizing the remediation part by Operable Units (OU's). A visitor can click on a particular OU and go to all the pertinent information on that OU. This will be worked on in early 2020.

The next meeting will be held in the June 2020 time frame.

Discussion related to community issues
At the March meeting of the Middleport Community Input Group, April Strong, who administers the Home Value Assurance Program sponsored by FMC, gave a presentation describing the plan, its benefits and differences with the previous plan.

This program is meant to support the appraised value of a home when the current resident and owner wishes to sell. The plan also includes rewards for timely selling. There are major differences between the current program and the Property Price Protection Plan FMC sponsored in the past and which ends June 15, 2009.

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.
