We make every effort to ensure the data presented here is accurate based on the best available information currently on file with DEC. It is therefore subject to change as new information becomes available. We recommend contacting the assigned project staff prior to making decisions based on this information.
The City of Thorne Bay submitted a request for a DEC Brownfield Assessment during the 2010 request period. Thorne Bay's Old Fire Hall is contaminated with cement asbestos siding on the exterior of the building. Other environmental hazards that may be present include soil contamination at the site due to the previous storage and maintenance of vehicles and equipment. The Old Fire Hall was erected in the 1970s for the Thorne Bay's volunteer firefighting squad. The City constructed its newer "Roth Building" in 1991 to house both the EMS and firefighting operations and decommissioned the use of the old fire hall as a municipal building. Currently, City staff utilizes it to store sand for winter road maintenance activities.
