The meeting starts at 6:30 Tuesday night. It will be at the St. Francis de Sales Parish Center on Exchange Street. Next week the DEC will be meeting individually with homeowners to discuss the results specific to their properties.

On Tuesday, people in Geneva can get some answers after learning about hundreds of acres of contamination involving their properties.

This involves about 220 properties or so all around the old Geneva Foundry Site - so Genesee Street, Lewis Street, Exchange Street and State Street. Last week, the DEC found high levels of lead and arsenic in the soil around there.

On Tuesday night they'll be hosting a meeting to tell people living there what their options are.

For perspective - the Department of Health says the objectives for lead in soil is 400 parts per million. They say in one property they found over 6,000 parts of lead per million - 15 times the objective.

The DEC is offering to clean up the area. We expect them to tell residents about that plan on Tuesday night. Doctors with the University of Rochester say those residents should pay close attention.

Dr. Katrina Korfmacher, Department of Environmental Medicine: Because soil gets disrupted over time and blows around, it can contaminate your house, get on your hands and then get into your body. And it's particularly risky for children. So it is a good idea to find out what the risks are and to make sure they're dealt with, whether it's removing the soil or making sure that it's well covered.
