Questions and Answers
- INTRODUCTION -
The Sebasticook Committee for a Clean Environment (SCCE) was formed to manage the EPA Superfund Technical Assistant Grant (TAG) associated with the Eastland Superfund cleanup in Corinna. With this grant, the SCCE has hired technical experts to review EPA documents, answer questions and provide the public with information about the cleanup process.
The SCCE meets on the first Monday of every month at the Stewart Library Building in Corinna at 7:00 p.m. We encourage the public to attend our meetings.
Over the next few days, the SCCE will present a series of questions and answers about the potential for development on Superfund cleanup sites. The information was prepared by the SCCE and its technical assistant Keith Taylor of Summit Environmental Consultants, Inc. in Lewiston, Maine.
