The New York State Departments of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Health (DOH), along with representatives from the Unisys Corporation and the Elmira City School District, invite the public to attend a Public Availability Session on June 14, 2018, at 5:30 p.m. at the Elmira High School gymnasium.

School families and local residents are encouraged to attend and get an update on the ongoing cleanup actions related to the Former Sperry Remington Site.

According to the DEC, New York State is overseeing a thorough cleanup of contamination found below ground on portions of the Elmira High School property, and is committed to ensuring the students, faculty and community are safe and informed of these actions.

Individual stations on various aspects of the cleanup and public health protection efforts will be staffed by experts from DEC, DOH and Unisys providing opportunities for interested residents and community members to have specific questions answered. DEC, DOH, and Unisys staff will provide detailed information on the ongoing cleanup efforts and environmental studies being conducted at the site and will be available throughout the evening to speak to members of the public personally or in small groups.

Additional information about the Former Sperry Remington Site is available on DEC's website or the Elmira City School District website.

If members of the public are unable to attend, they are encouraged to send comments and questions related to the project to: Timothy Schneider PE at DEC's Division of Environmental Remediation, 6274 East Avon Lima Road, Avon, NY 14414, or emailed to timothy.schneider@dec.ny.gov or by calling 585-226-5480.

Site-Related Health Questions can be sent to: Dawn Hettrick, PE at DOH's Bureau of Environmental Exposure Investigation, Empire State Plaza, Corning Tower Room #1787, Albany, NY 12237, emailed to BEEI@health.ny.gov or by calling (518) 402-7860.

One would logically think that hearing from the professionals who have researched and investigated the matter for decades would be more productive than venting on social media, FB and YouTube presentations....but we'll have to see if logic prevails ;)
