Green Candidate Hassig Presents Plan for Minimizing Harm at NY Air
Brake Superfund Site

Dulles State Office Building, Watertown, New York USA
First Floor Lobby

The residents of the Watertown neighborhood that is near the NY Air
Brake Superfund Site have suffered a horrible public health disaster.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and
the New York State Department of Health (DOH) have the blood of many
on their hands.  This is so wrong.

Cancer Action NY will take immediate steps to minimize the harm that
will result from the presence of industrial contaminants on the lands
of the NY Air Brake factory.  We will put up a pollutant carcinogen
exposure minimization education page on our website and conduct door
to door educational outreach in the impacted neighborhood.  We will
begin advocating for active comprehensive cancer prevention
educational outreach by the DOH in the affected community.  We will
commence an investigation of government inaction and deception in
matters concerning the contamination of Kelsey Creek, the NY Air Brake
site and the outdoor atmosphere in the vicinity of the NY Air Brake
site.

“I am outraged by what I heard at the North Side Improvement League NY
Air Brake Superfund Site meeting that took place last week in
Watertown.  The people of this community have been abused very badly
by NY Air Brake, the DEC and the DOH.  It is time for corporate and
government accountability in Watertown.  Where is the US Environmental
Protection Agency?  This is unconscionable in America.”-Donald L.
Hassig
