CPAC soldiers on despite the best efforts of Chemtura and the Ministry of the Environment. This includes the very best efforts of Mark and Sandy should also be mentioned. This is most interesting especially when folks realize that according to those involved there is no way possible for CPAC to operate well without Chemtura and the M.O.E. attending. Woolwich Council have claimed that CPAC is done without the input from the other two.

On May 28/15 at 6 pm. CPAC will hold another regular monthly meeting. This is important as the teamwork of CPAC less
Mark is something that we don't want to lose. CPAC's continued resolve to bring honesty and transparency to the cleanup
is unshaken. Part of this resolve is due to neverending research and learning about other sites. This work is never
done and this is how the Velsicol Chemical site in St. Louis Michigan was discovered.

There are numerous similarities with our Chemtura site here in Elmira. DDT was manufactured there as well as here. The contamination goes very deep into the ground as well as into the local river directly beside the site. DNAPLS have been found on both sites and require remediation. The difference of course is that across the border they take this contamination seriously and local politicians do not rule the day and overule doing what is right.
