Scituate Groundwater Sites Public Health Consultation in Rhode Island
Providence County, Providence, Rhode Island
Friday, January 16, 2004
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), a public health agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, today announced it will hold a public availability meeting on Jan. 26 to inform the Scituate and Johnston, Rhode Island, communities of the release of the public health consultation on the Scituate Groundwater Sites. These sites include areas of Danielson Pike and Peck Hill Road.
The public health consultation finds no apparent public health hazard to residents from chlorinated solvents in groundwater. However, prudent public health practice suggests that continued long-term exposure should be avoided where possible.
The public availability meeting will afford community members the opportunity to meet one-on-one with ATSDR representatives to discuss the findings of the health consultation. The session will be held Monday, Jan. 26, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the North Scituate School, 46 Institute Lane, North Scituate, RI 02857, 401-647-4110.
ATSDR's conclusions and recommendations are included in the health consultation, which is available for review at the following repositories:
Hope Library (Scituate)
374 North Road
Hope, RI 02831
North Scituate Library
606 West Greenville Road

Marion J. Mohr Library
One Memorial Ave.
Johnston, RI 02919
