Former Bendix and Bandbox Buildings located at 2 & 6 Hodskin Street, Canton, St. Lawrence County, New York 13617

Project Description: The Village of Canton has entered into a Voluntary Cleanup Agreement with the NYSDEC to investigate the former dry cleaning facility. A Remedial Investigation (RI) & Interim Remedial Measure (IRM) Work Plan has been developed to address environmental concerns at the site. As part of the investigation work plan, an IRM has been proposed to excavate and remove contaminated soils which have been impacted by dry cleaning solvents. The impacted soils will be removed for off site disposal at a secure landfill. The soil and groundwater will be tested to determine if cleanup goals and groundwater standards have been achieved. If cleanup goals are achieved, the site will be restored and utilized as a municipal parking lot.
