The DEC plans on beginning to remove contaminated soil from around approximately 40 homes in neighborhoods located near the former Geneva Foundry site next month.
LaBella Associates of Rochester will be performing the second phase of the work until all impacted properties are cleaned up. According to the DEC, sidewalks, driveways, trees, shrubs, lawns, garden beds, sheds and decks will all be replaced and fixed if they are impacted during the cleanup process. Contaminated soil will be excavated and taken away, with clean fill being brought in to replace it.
The Our Lady of Peace Parish Center will host availability sessions for residents to talk with the DEC and Department of Health March 27th from 3 until 5 p.m.
