Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Vapor intrusion at CooperVision, Scottsville, New York

Contact lens maker CooperVision is in the midst of a third round of environmental tests near its plant in the village of Scottsville, trying to track vapors from industrial solvents that spilled or leaked over the years at the manufacturing facility.

State environmental officials said the next step will be indoor air testing at apartments and townhouses just east of the CooperVision facility, to determine if the vapors might be seeping into the buildings from the earth below.

"We're looking to make sure that round happens early in the new year," said Bart Putzig, regional hazardous waste remediation engineer for the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
