Ongoing work by NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and NYSDOH have minimized the potential for human exposure. This work included installing mitigation systems indoors and protective cover outdoors. However, we do not have information about the potential levels and pathways of exposure for these contaminants prior to the year 2000. Current and former Elmira High School employees are encouraged to contact NYSDOH so that we may better understand their health history relative to dates of employment, and other related information. We encourage you to do so no matter what the start and stop dates of your employment were at the school. This information will help NYSDOH in its ongoing efforts to work with the ECSD and community stakeholders.
