Description The fact sheet describes that outreach staff from the Port of Ridgefield’s consultant will reach out to homeowners of the remaining properties that have dioxin-contaminated soil. Most of the total number of contaminated properties have already been cleaned up. Outreach staff will be confirming that existing access agreements are still valid and asking new homeowners for their agreements. It has been a while since information has been sent to the community about the off-property cleanup. Soon after confirming/getting access, samplers will go out to residential yards measure the depth of dioxin contamination. Areal extent of contamination is known. What’s needed now is knowledge of the depth of contamination, so the port to finish drafting the cleanup action plan.
NOTES Links to all the documents are placed on the Site webpage and the documents are uploaded to DSARS. The fact sheet mailer will be mailed to residents at addresses about ¼ mile east of the Port of Ridgefield property.
