Presentation set tonight on Ordnance Works board
LEWISTON -- The Army Corps of Engineers will hold a public meeting tonight that will include a presentation about the federal agency's renewed proposal to establish a new advisory board for the former Lake Ontario Ordnance Works site.
In 2008, the agency announced it wanted to restructure a group known as the LOOW Restoration Advisory Board, which includes area residents with technical expertise in chemistry and radiation. At the time, members of the group and area governments said they wanted the existing group to continue.
Tonight's meeting also will include a report from the U.S. Department of Energy on its review of potential radiological contamination left over from the Manhattan Project on land in Lewiston and Porter.
The public meeting, which will include a round-table discussion, will run from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Lewiston Senior Center, 4361 Lower River Road.

WHEATFIELD A member of the staff of Rep. Chris Lee, R-Clarence, will be available for one-on-one meetings from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Thursday in the Community Center, 2790 Church Road.
