Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Toledo (OH) Beryllium plant
No cleanup planned for former beryllium plant

August 31, 2005

BOWLING GREEN - Remediation plans for a former beryllium production
plant near Luckey do not call for cleaning up or removing the buildings
on the site, but the Army Corps of Engineers now says it will test the
soil beneath the buildings and "determine if further action is needed."

That's the good news, said Graham Mitchell, chief of the Office of
Federal Facilities Oversight for the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.

"[This] is the first we've heard that they intend to do some sampling
under the buildings. That's a real positive sign," Mr. Mitchell told a
group of neighbors, company officials, and local and federal
officeholders gathered at the Wood County Health Department yesterday.

Representatives of the Army Corps of Engineers, which is charged with
cleaning up the former defense site, did not attend the meeting, but
sent written responses to a long list of questions posed by Brad Espen,
director of environmental health for the health department.
