EPA has determined in the five-year review that the cleanup at the Midvale Slag Superfund site is protective. This means that the current remedy is protective of human health and the environment and allows for residential, recreational and commercial reuse. Drinking water is provided by the Jordan Valley Water Conservation District Exit with groundwater use being restricted by the Salt Lake Valley Ground Water Management Plan and the Midvale City ordinance. The ordinance also describes the procedures for workers handling soils at depth and Midvale City staff oversee any redevelopment projects.
In April 2015, EPA, state, and local agency representatives joined business leaders and elected officials and staff at the FLSmidth Plaza in Midvale City to celebrate the removal of the Midvale Slag site from EPA’s Superfund list. Also at the ceremony, Region 8 presented the second “Excellence in Site Reuse” awards to the Midvale City, Utah, for their efforts to reuse and redevelop the Midvale Slag Superfund site into Bingham Junction. EPA deleted the site from the National Priorities List because all required cleanup activity at the site is complete. This marks 20-plus years of collaboration and dedication at the federal, state, and local level to transform a once contaminated land into a thriving development.
