CORNING, N.Y. (WENY) -- The New York State DEC is changing the status of a Superfund Site in Corning, stating the location no longer poses a significant public health threat.
According to the agency, the site located at 37 East Pulteney Street has been reclassified from a "Class 2" to a "Class 4" on the state's registry. Officials say interim remedial measures were implemented in 2010 and 2012, under the State Superfund Program. This included excavation of contaminated soil, followed by the installation of a soil vapor extraction system.
An environmental easement will limit the use and development of the site to restricted-residential, commercial or industrial use. It will also prohibit the use of groundwater at the site as a source of potable or process water without prior approval.
