A group formed by the Lafarge cement plant will hear from the state Health Department next week on a still-unfinished health study about potential health risks around the plant.

No preliminary findings from the state study, in the works for more than a year, will be released during the closed-door presentation Sept. 30 to the Lafarge Community Liaison Panel, DOH spokesman Jeffrey Hammond said Wednesday.

He said the meeting was to "provide an update on the status of the (assessment); and, answer questions about the status and process ... We won’t be sharing the results of the (assessment) during this meeting as Phase 1 is not yet complete."
