NY, Corning study whether fill is health hazard

The Associated PressJuly 14, 2014 

— The state Department of Environmental Conservation and the Corning company are doing a study of fill that was dumped over three decades to build up an area in the city of Corning that now has several schools, playgrounds, and over 200 homes.

The fill consists of glass chunks and other materials from glass and brick manufacturing in the city during the first half of the 20th century.

The Elmira Star-Gazette (http://stargaz.tt/1sQtsFV ) reports that Corning Inc. will pay for the study and the state Health Department and DEC will determine if there are any environmental or health concerns. The agencies also will determine whether remedial action is needed.
