EPA to Hold Two Open House Sessions in Glen Jean

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold two open house sessions on October 27 and 28 in Glen Jean, West Virginia.

The two sessions will answer questions about soil and water sampling conducted this past summer at three locations around Minden, West Virginia that detected low levels of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs).

The open house sessions will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 27 and 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 28 at the National Guard Armory, Glen Jean.

EPA conducted the sampling this past summer in response to concerns from residents about potential health effects from the former Shaffer Equipment Company site where EPA conducted cleanup work in 2002.

The work in 2002 included excavating soil and constructing a cap over about one acre of the six-acre site that included the remains of a demolished building and some remaining contaminated soil. Recent sampling indicates that EPA’s work at the cap site has limited the spread of PCBs.

The former Shaffer Equipment Company used the site to manufacture equipment used in mining that included transformers and other electrical equipment that contained PCBs.
