Residents want more pollution data Clinton West Plaza neighbors frustrated by lack of information By Krisy Gashler Ithaca Journal (NY) August 19, 2008ITHACA - Environmental investigations in and around the Clinton West Plaza have just started, which accounts in part for why answers at a Monday night public meeting were so hard to come by.
There was also evident frustration among some of the 35-40 residents in attendance about what is already known but wasn't being shared with them.
"I felt like it was a lot of work to extract information," Valerie Pavan said after the meeting. Pavan is a Southside resident who said she lives "500 feet away" from the Clinton West Plaza on Plain Street.
Detections of tetrachloroethylene, or PERC; trichloroethylene, or TCE; and other potentially carcinogenic compounds were described as low and non-problematic, but neither Fagan engineers, the consultant hired by Clinton West Ltd., nor representatives from the state departments of Health and Environmental Conservation could provide any information about exactly what was detected and at what levels.
