Greetings!

 

We have exciting news to share. Last week, we began operation at the Corning Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) to Paint Pigment treatment project. Now that water is flowing, our project team would like to invite you out to Corning for a tour and celebration on Monday, October 29, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Light refreshments from My Little Bakery will be served. Please join us at the John Altier Park in Corning. For navigation purposes, you can use this address for the Corning Post Office: 105 Washington St, Corning, OH 43730. The park is directly across the street.
