BILL O'BOYLE Wilkes-Barre Times Leader (PA) August 26, 2009WILKES-BARRE - Air quality test results over the next few days could determine if a new building constructed to house King's College students, offices and a day care facility can open.
Citing two concerns, the state Department of Environmental Protection has recommended the city not issue an occupancy permit for Gateway Corners, the new building at the corner of North Main and North streets.
However, a temporary occupancy certificate was issued before the city was made aware of DEP's concerns. Some King's students are already living in the building and more are scheduled to move in this weekend. A day care center is scheduled to open there in September.
According to DEP spokesman Mark Carmon, the two concerns are sewage backing up into neighboring homes along Meyers Court and potential vapor intrusion in the building caused by old petroleum and dry cleaning storage tanks that have been removed from the site. The building sits on land once occupied by the former Mary MacIntosh Dry Cleaning.
