Announcements and Key Topics

EPA is conducting a time-critical cleanup this summer to remove PCB-contaminated soil at eight properties of the Ten-Mile Drain Superfund site. The cleanup is done in consultation with health agencies and is based on soil samples taken in the area last year, which showed elevated levels of PCBs at or near the surface of the eight properties - six public right-of-ways and two residential yards. The soil removal locations are on Bon Brae Street, except for one area on Lange Street.

EPA is contacting property owners prior to each individual property cleanup. Due to COVID-19 concerns, EPA personnel and contractors will adhere to protective measures including social distancing, increased sanitation, and the use of face masks when in enclosed spaces. These special provisions, among others, are documented in the site-specific Health and Safety Plan (PDF) (60 pp, 869.43 K, About PDF). The cleanup is at no cost to the property owner.
