Minding the gap is the latest push for group monitoring cleanup of Elmira chemical site
from Ovserver Xtra
There was a time when Elmira was home to open-air pits containing some of the worst, most hazardous chemicals known to man. Stored in so-called retention ponds on the former Chemtura property on the east side of town, the waste pits would eventually become ground-zero for the water crisis that hit Elmira in 1989. When it rained, the ponds poured their toxic effluence into the surrounding watershed. Some of the toxic mixture was washed away into the Canagagigue Creek over the decades, contaminating the communities living downstream.
