Statement from Cabot Corp. re: Washington Street Quarry property As part of Cabot Corporation's Property Management program, we have offered to donate land we own on Washington Street to the city of Kokomo, Indiana for public use. Throughout our ownership of the property, which was historically a quarry and a landfill, we have worked closely with the proper authorities to ensure the cleanup of the site. In order to put this former landfill site back into productive use, Cabot has taken action to remediate the land and remove any potential environmental contamination. In the final stage of this process, Cabot is removing industrial grinding wheels that were left at the property. Thorough testing and analysis determined that these grinding wheels contain very low levels of naturally occurring radioactive material (â€œNORMâ€�), pose no health concern and are well below the level at which they would be subject to regulations. However, in an abundance of caution, Cabot has chosen to remove the wheels before the property is donated to the City. Cabot is committed to being a responsible and respected citizen in the communities in which it operates, and wants to ensure that the people of Kokomo have a clean and safe area to enjoy for the future.
