Public Meetings and Information Sessions
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 protected and informed of these actions. As with previous in person availability sessions this will be an open format dedicated to your questions, concerns and interest in the ongoing environmental activities at Elmira High School (EHS), Southern Tier Commerce Center (STCC) and along Coldbrook Creek. Project experts from DEC, DOH, Unisys and EHS will be available to provide detailed information on the extensive work completed this summer, the ongoing work on the football field, and plans for future investigation and cleanup activities including areas in the surrounding community. We look forward to addressing your questions and concerns.
