EPA is updating the Community Involvement Plan (CIP) for this site and expects to release the updated CIP in summer of 2019. Once released, EPA will provide a link to the updated CIP on this page.
EPA is currently addressing residential soil contamination in three North Birmingham, Alabama, neighborhoods. To date, more than 440 properties have been remediated by EPA’s Removal Program, across four different phases. More than 50,000 tons of contaminated soil have been excavated from the three communities and sent for disposal at an approved off-site landfill. Under current conditions, EPA anticipates that cleanup activities will be completed by 2023.
Public Participation Opportunities
EPA conducts a range of community involvement activities to solicit community input and to make sure the public remains informed about site activities throughout the cleanup process. Outreach efforts have included public notices, public meetings and interviews on clean-up activities and other updates. The latest Fact Sheet is being finalized for distribution to the stakeholders. The Community Involvement Plan (CIP) is currently being updated.
The Community Involvement Plan (CIP) is designed to assist the public in understanding the project decision making process during project design and cleanup and the community’s role to provide meaningful input into that process. EPA anticipates releasing the updated CIP in the summer of 2019. Once released, EPA will provide a link to the updated CIP on this page.
