|Cleanup will likely involve technologies to remove or treat contamination in soil, groundwater and the nearshore lake sediments. An extensive restoration plan would re-establish and expand wetland areas and increase riparian habitat at the shoreline.||
The Time for Action
More than $7.3 million has been spent by the current property owners to study and cleanup historical contamination over the past 25 years.
Without an opportunity for redevelopment, funds to pay for the cleanup will not be readily available to the property owners.
A reasonable, timely, environmentally protective and cost effective cleanup can be achieved when approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
