EPA Community Updates


In December of 1998, The United States Environmental Protection Agency started an investigation of the Eastland Woolen Mill site. At that time, the agency mailed out the first Community Update fact sheet to the residents of Corinna.

Since then, as the cleanup process has progressed, the EPA has kept the people of Corinna informed by issuing more Community Updates and holding numerous public meetings. 

Erin Heskett, who works in Public Affairs for the EPA, has provided The Cattail Press with the text of the Community Updates issued so far. They are informative and written for the general public. These updates provide a good overview of the EPA's work in Corinna.
