Redevelopment at the Site

In 2008, the EPA selected a final cleanup plan to address remaining contamination. Cleanup included excavation and off-site disposal of contaminated sediment and surface soil. The plan also included on-site treatment of groundwater and deep contaminated soils using in-situ solidification/stabilization (ISS). The responsible parties completed these cleanup activities in December 2014. The EPA worked with the site owner to allow continued use of the property during and after cleanup activities. Today, MERECO uses an on-site building as an office and to process materials containing precious metals.
