NY American Valve Rears Its Ugly Head Again

January 26, 2010- State Department of Environmental Conservation and Department of Health investigators are teaming up to learn more about suspected air quality problems in and around the old American Valve site in Coxsackie.

Homes around the American Valve site are scheduled to be sampled before the end of March, according to Severino. Eight homes in the vicinity have already been visited by investigators. More than 20 homes are located around the 15.5-acre American Valve property. Soil vapor intrusion occurs when toxins migrate from contaminated soil to the indoor air of structures built directly over, or adjacent to, the polluted area.
