Residents of Lewiston and Porter whose property was once part of the former Lake Ontario Ordnance Works can find out more about what federal regulators have planned for the investigation and cleanup of the site during a public session scheduled for Wednesday night.
The session, hosted by the Army Corps of Engineers, starts at 6 p.m. and runs through 9 p.m., in the Lewiston Senior Center, 4361 Lower River Road.
The Army Corps of Engineers have categorized more than 550 parcels that were part of the former 7,500-acre federal weapons facility (click for map) into 33 groups, based on several characteristics, including current use, location, suspected impacts by Department of Defense activities and eligibility under the federal cleanup program.
Anyone who owns land a piece of land on the former LOOW should bring the tax ID number for their parcel to help find which group it belongs in.
