FMC Middleport Facility
Corrective Actions to Address Environmental Contamination
Front entrance to the FMC Middleport facility
FMC's Middleport Facility is a pesticide formulation and packaging plant that formerly manufactured arsenic-based and other pesticide products. As a result of past manufacturing operations and waste disposal practices at this facility, chemical releases have occurred at the site that have affected sediment, surface water and groundwater at the facility's property and also in adjacent off-site areas.
Cleanup to address environmental contamination at this site is being addressed by DEC's Resource Conservation and Recovery (RCRA) Corrective Action Program, in cooperation with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the New York State Department of Health (DOH). These three cooperating agencies are referred to as "the Agencies" for convenience in project documents.
