The Former Texaco Beacon Research Facility Community Advisory Panel met on June 13, 2018 at the Slater Chemical Fire Hall. The meeting began with self-introductions and a safety moment. The safety moment dealt with keeping yourself safe during tick season.
The primary agenda topic was upcoming site investigation field activities that are proposed for later in 2018. Mark Hendrickson and Craig Butler described the field activities and how the analytical results would be included in the future Remedial Investigation (RI) Report submittal to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC). The RI Report will capture the results of all the environmental site investigation activities conducted on the property over the years. The RI Report, in turn, will support the future Feasibility Study (FS), which will identify potential remedial alternatives that may be appropriate for the site. The FS will be prepared and submitted to the NYSDEC, and the agency requires that the public have an opportunity to comment on it.
