Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Ohio beryllium site
Neighbors fear delay in beryllium site cleanup
Some worry Luckey plant to change hands

April 21, 2005

LUCKEY - Like many Luckey-area residents, Steve Shaffer has waited years
for the Army Corps of Engineers to begin its long-promised cleanup of a
former beryllium production plant on the edge of this Wood County village.

Now, he and local officials fear time may be running out. They are
concerned about rumors the property may change hands and a scrap steel
recycling facility may begin operating there.

"If this site becomes another commercial industry, there would be no
need for such an extensive cleanup," Mr. Shaffer wrote in a recent
letter to his neighbors. "The Corps of Engineers could easily justify
the less costly proposal to do little to nothing on the site since the
new owners would more than likely contaminate the area again."
