EPA issues final NFR for Cook Canton plant

CANTON - In 2004, Canton officials celebrated getting a draft "no further remediation" letter from the state Environmental Protection Agency, indicating no further cleanup was required for the northeast corner of the former International Harvester plant site. That cleared the area for development. Now that area has been developed with construction of the Cook Canton medical-device production facility. The Cook plant apparently was built according to standards. On Tuesday, April 12, the city received from the EPA a final no-further remediation letter for the property. It was the first such official endorsement issued for any part of the IH site.

"It's been 14 years in the making since the fire" on Aug. 6, 1997 destroyed most of the plant, said City Attorney Chrissie Peterson on Thursday. She added the EPA file had still referred to the old IH property as the CyberAmerica site. CyberAmerica was the name of the latest operation at the plant site prior to the fire.
