|Description||In 2016, DNR entered into a legal agreement with Ecology to cleanup contamination. Due to the lack of approval of a state capital budget, cleanup actions had to be delayed. In early 2018, the capital budget passed and DNR is ready to begin cleanup work. Cleanup actions include:
•Removing approximately 6 trees (to allow access for the work). Nearby neighbors may notice some noise and vibration.
•Removing about 145 cubic yards of contaminated soil and disposing at an approved facility.
•Pumping groundwater as needed during soil removal.
•Disposing of contaminated soil and water off-property at an approved facility.
•Collecting soil samples to determine if any contamination is left.
•Sampling soil stockpiles to determine if they are clean and can be reused as fill or if they need to be disposed of at an approved facility.
•Backfilling the excavation with clean soil and then planting a grass cover.
•Sampling and reporting on groundwater concentration levels to determine the overall cleanup effect.
