The Mill has an historical importance as it was one of the earliest manufacturers of the natural cement in all of the United States. In 1814, Juba Storrs brought the company from Williams certain land and all the mill rights to Juba Storrs and Company who had interests in Canada and Canandaigua, New York. Because that Williams owned the land adjacent of the mill pond, Williams required the company to lower the dam down, mostly to prevent his property from getting flooded. The first patent for the manufacturer of natural cement is known as the water lime granted in the year 1819 when this material was used in the making of the Erie Canal. Today its known best as an historic landmark in
Two months ago, we at Farnsworth hired a consulting firm, Terra Engineering, to analyze the area surrounding our landfill. They drilled test wells at several points between the landfill and the lake and found no detectable level of alkalies in the groundwater, even though we had been dumping our fly ash there for years.

The best way to soak them is in a sink with cold water and OXY clean for a couple of day.
I am from a small farming community in southern Indiana, Ellettsville. Ellettsville is located 50 miles south of the state capitol, Indianapolis, and 8 miles West of Indiana University. Ellettsville was founded by limestone merchants in 1837; Edward Ellett was the very first limestone merchant to become established. Due to this heritage the town motto is “Builders of American History”, due to the amount of limestone that has been shipped from the town all over the United States used in many structures. In the 2010 census, the population of Ellettsville was 6378.
I personally only had to clean an oven and a freezer, and to pick up some debris that blew into my backyard. Here it is, October 19th, 2012 and I still have water damage to my house. The housing manager has stated that it could take the rest of the year and possibly into 2013 to fix all the the damaged houses here on the base. So pretty much everything is back to normal. The Hurricane was bad but not as bad as it could have been.
They also drove out to more rural areas within Napa County to review damage to historic buildings. The team members filled out FEMA's “Combined Building and Site Condition Assessment" forms (developed by the National Park Service), talked to homeowners, photographed damaged buildings, and passed out informational flyers with helpful links to disaster recovery resources, historic structure evaluation following an earthquake, and preservation emergency response and protection strategies. Since the earthquake hit, the community had experienced many aftershocks, and some residents and business owners are still unable to occupy their buildings due the level of damage caused by the earthquake. With well over 600 historic buildings and structures on the red- and yellow-tagged lists, they are
Ike was a huge economic burden to the U.S. and “estimates suggest Ike may become one of the costliest hurricanes on record” (FEMA 10). Hurricanes are known for causing severe structural damage to houses, but also have an effect on many businesses as well. Many people had to evacuate and be out of work for up to two weeks due to power outage and debris. Also, some businesses were damaged by flooding and wind, which caused the loss of crucial business equipment. Businesses were flooded along the Texas coast and lost all of their vital technology such as computers, telephones, and other office equipment.
After the TVA report was released, Triana mayor Clyde Foster, concerned that the local citizens might have been contaminated, requested that residents be checked for signs of DDT in their bodies. The Center for Disease Control, based in Atlanta, Georgia, was sent to test the residents. Initially, twelve inhabitants were tested for DDT in their blood. The results showed that not only was DDT present in their blood, but that the levels were three times the normal levels of DDT found in other case studies. The compared case studies were of workers at DDT plants, yet none of the residents tested in Triana had ever worked at such a facility.

The housing stock in High Point consists primarily of homes built before lead-based paint was banned in 1978. Approximately 75% of the existing 35,933 housing units in the City were constructed in eras when using lead-based paint was the norm. Lead-based paints were banned for use in housing in 1978. Lead is a highly toxic metal used for many years in paints and other products found in and around our homes. This suggests that most of the homes and apartment buildings that have not been recently renovated, or have not been built in the last 32 years, contain some lead based paint (The City of High Point, 2010, p.23).
