President Doctor Tim Brewer says the completed environmental studies turned up no major concerns.  While the college isn’t responsible for building demolition, it is responsible for environmental clean-up.

(AUDIO – Doctor Tim Brewer): “Found some diesel fuel contamination as well as some hydraulic fuel contamination, but not at any significant levels that couldn’t be removed.  There were no PCBs or ground water contamination.”

Brewer expected demolition of the old building to start yesterday, although as of late afternoon, the site looked un-touched.
