BROWNFIELD ZONE: Funds to help remediate former Emkay plant

By Matt Surtel, Batavia Daily News (NY)

A total of $500,000 in federal funding has been awarded to help clean up a brownfield site in the village.

The brownfield clean-up grant was awarded to WCBC North LLC, which is managed by the Wyoming County Business Center. The site was most recently the former Emkay Dairy Processing plant.

“On behalf of the community, I am very grateful the WCBC North, LLC, has been awarded an EPA Brownfield Cleanup grant of $500,000 to assist with the mitigation of the former Emkay dairy processing facility in the Village of Arcade,” said Manager James Pierce of the WCBC North LLC in a news release. “This abandoned and contaminated property has been a public health hazard for over 20 years, and the grant funding is a critical first-step in cleaning up and developing a clear path for future site development.”
