The Terry Creek site was inspected by EPA on September 15, 2017. No significant issues related to hurricane Irma were discovered. Security fencing around the site was damaged by fallen trees, storm related debris is on the site, and the underflow weir in the outfall ditch was damaged. Hercules, the responsible party, is working to procure contracting resources to remove downed trees, fix security fencing, remove debris, and assess if additional action needs to be taken on the weir.

In June of 2017, EPA approved a record of decision for OU1: Outfall Ditch. The remedial action for OU-1 will reroute the outfall ditch into a newly constructed, concrete lined conveyance structure, and backfill the existing outfall ditch which will prevent any further migration of contaminated sediment.
