TOPICS IN FOCUS
Cleanup work at this site has been partially funded by $3.7 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
These funds allowed EPA to begin work in 2010, one year earlier than expected. Part of a landfill berm, and a berm along the river that will help contain dredged sediments have been constructed with the funds.
