As part of a May 2014 federal court approval of Kodak’s bankruptcy settlement, the company created an environmental trust to fund remediation and monitoring activities at Kodak’s Eastman Business Park and to conduct an investigation to assess whether the Genesee River suffered damages associated with discharges from Kodak’s historic operations. NYSDEC is administering the trust, which is funded by Kodak.
The river investigation being directed by NYSDEC will assess the sediments, water, biota and floodplains in the lower Genesee River in Rochester from near Route 104 (Veterans Memorial Bridge) to the mouth of the river at Lake Ontario. NYSDEC finalized the investigation work plan in April 2015, and the investigation will start this year.
The investigation work plan and additional information about the upcoming investigation are available on the NYSDEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/97804.html"
