Creosote Clean Up Continues

Clean up work at the creosote site began in early August and is expected to continue into December. Crews have been working to move two stormwater pipes that carry water under the levee and across the site to the river. Workers are also building a temporary flood control barrier made of giant sandbags in case there is flooding this winter. Also in October, work will begin to install an underground wall around the contaminated soils. The site will remain closed to the public until late 2015. However, the walking path on the top of the levee is open and provides a great view of the construction site. Questions and concerns can be directed to Debra Sherbina, EPA, 1-800-424-4372.
