DEC performs more testing on Lee Ave. site

NORWICH – The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is currently performing more soil tests on the ground near Lee Avenue where a chemical spill took place in the mid 1990s.



URS Engineering Corporation, sub-contracted by the DEC, has hired Nature’s Way Environmental to perform soil borings and install monitoring wells in the neighborhood near the railroad and east of a factory that was previously home to Gee Wiliker’s Kid’s Clothing. The building now houses The Label Gallery.

The company will be continuing previous testing to determine if there are heightened levels of trichlorethylene in the area. TCE has been used as a metal cleaning solvent, a paint stripper and an adhesive solvent.
