During this meeting, representatives from the Exide Group, the owners of the property on the Post Road where the cleanup is taking place, and TRC Engineering, the firm that has been conducting the cleanup work on behalf of the Exide Group, will present information regarding work that was completed in 2014 and will give a preview of work planned for 2015.
