Area doctors given data on pollution

State hopes information aids diagnosis of illnesses

Press & Sun-Bulletin (NY)
May 24, 2004

Doctors in the Binghamton area are being offered a crash course in
illnesses that could be related to exposure to pollution in Endicott. 

Last week, 400 doctors in the Binghamton area and northern Pennsylvania
began receiving information kits from the state Department of Health
that include fact sheets about pollution in Endicott and case studies of
illnesses related to chemical exposure. 

The inten tion is to inform local care providers of the problem
affecting Endicott homes and businesses so they are better able to
diagnose illnesses that could be related, said Claire Pospisil, a
spokeswoman for the Department of Health. 

Packets include information about two chemicals that have been found
wafting from a subterranean plume of pollution into hundreds of homes
and businesses in Endicott: trichoroethylene, also known as TCE, and
tetrachloroethylene, also known as PCE. 

IBM Corp. is installing ventilation systems to keep the chemicals out of
about 480 structures in a 300-acre area south of its former campus on
North Street. The Department of Environmental Conservation is evaluating
samples from homes in a 50-acre area immediately to the west, where
traces of chemicals have been found.
