(GENEVA) — When and where do they start? That’s been the lingering question for people in the area surrounding the former Geneva Foundry site.
The State Department of Environmental Conservation has hired contractors to remove lead and arsenic contaminated top soil and replace it with clean fill and plant new trees and greenery where needed.
According to new plans released yesterday, this summer two home daycare operations in the area will be dealt with first as well as 16 homes on the block directly across from the foundry. The work is expected to begin in July and finish in December.
The DEC and State Health Department will have a pair of public sessions next Wednesday at the Salvation Army at 41 North Street. The meetings will be from 3 to 5PM and from 6 to 8 PM.
