Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Corn canning factory, Norway, Maine
Canning factory site being evaluated

NORWAY - The results of the second phase of an environmental study of the old corn canning factory on Lake Road will be revealed next month, but early indications show there may be no significant hazards.

"There's nothing too ominous on any of the sites," said Janet Pelletier from the Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments. A $200,000 Environmental Protection Agency grant was awarded in 2005 for the testing of five potentially hazardous sites, including the corn shop at 61 Lake Road.

While the specific results of the water and land tests won't be revealed until a public hearing at 7 p.m. Sept. 18 in Norway Town Hall, Pelletier said it doesn't appear that the tests, which included groundwater and soil sampling, will show anything "too bad."
