Schumer to visit Alcoa Wednesday


MASSENA - Sen. Charles E. Schumer will be visiting Alcoa’s Massena West Plant at 11 a.m. Wednesday, his office confirmed Tuesday afternoon.

Mr. Schumer will meet with company officials and discuss the proposed modernization of the Massena facility. He will also address Alcoa’s concerns about the proposed future phases of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Grasse River cleanup. Alcoa needs more information on the cleanup’s costs and details and how it will be involved before moving forward with the modernization project, Mr. Schumer’s Press Secretary Meredith C. Kelly said.

Mr. Schumer will be relaying those concerns to the Environmental Protection Agency, Ms. Kelly said.

“They can’t move forward with future expansion plans until they know what’s going on with the EPA,” Ms. Kelly said. “They need some certainty that they don’t have right now.”
