Announcements and Key Topics
The field work for the second phase of interim cleanup was completed during the first week of March 2020. This phase of the cleanup used In-Situ Chemical Oxidation (ISCO) to treat contamination in a 1.9-acre area. The area treated by ISCO is north of the area that was successfully treated by Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH) in 2018.
Public Participation Opportunities
The EPA and NCDEQ have conducted a broad range of community involvement activities to meaningfully involve the community and to ensure that the Asheville community remains informed about site activities throughout the site cleanup and evaluation process. Outreach activities have included public notices and information meetings regarding site progress and activities. Outreach activities have also included work with the local government.The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) has also engaged in outreach activities along with the EPA and North Carolina Department of Health (NCDPH) to inform the community on contaminants of concern. EPA staff distributes Community Updates via email. If you would like to be added to the email distribution list, please sign up here.
In 2013, EPA awarded the POWER (Protecting Our Water and Environmental Resources) Action GroupExit a Technical Assistance Grant (TAG). The TAG helps communities participate in Superfund cleanup decision-making. It provides funding to community groups to contract their own technical advisor to interpret and explain technical reports, site conditions, and EPA’s proposed cleanup plans and decisions throughout the Superfund process. The EPA Remedial Project Manager (RPM) and Community Involvement Coordinator (CIC) work closely with the technical advisor to coordinate technical reviews of work plans and reports.
