Site Cleanups Across the State, One Site in Broome County

In the interest of public health, The Department of Environmental Conservation is awarding thirteen contaminated municipal sites across the state $8.4 million in funding to complete site cleanup.

One of those sites is right here in Broome County on Maple Street in Endicott. The site was formerly a circuit board manufacturer that went out of business, and was deemed contaminated by t-c-e, which was a common industrial contaminent.

According to officials, the Maple Street location will be receiving over 58,000 dollars to finish the cleanup that they have already been working on.

"We removed as much of the contamination as we could and we've treated the remaining contamination that's there. So now the site's clean. This is the last little piece of it, which is to do the final legal and engineering work to button up the site," said Frank Evangelisti, Chief Planner with the BC Dept. of Planning.

The state-wide sites are a part of the state's environmental restoration program, and the money will be through NY Works funding.
