"Cover Story" piece on Corinna, which the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
"Cover Story" piece on Corinna, which the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) added to its Superfund list in July 1999, because of chlorobenzene pollution caused by the Eastland Woolen Mill. Demolition of the mill, which closed in 1996, began in December 1999, and since then, the town's Main Street has been destroyed, the East Branch of the Sebasticook River that flows through the town has been moved, and the main highway, Route 7, has been relocated. Residents have flocked to the sidelines of the 23-acre construction site to watch excavators flatten the near century-old village center. In March, the EPA awarded the town an $82,500 Superfund Redevelopment Grant to hire consultants to come up with a reuse plan. When there is agreement on what kind of development is appropriate and can compete with adjacent business in Newport, planners will come up with design standards.
