Project Accomplishments    |     Site Characterization

Collaborative efforts at the local, state, and federal levels from agencies, contractors, neighborhood associations, legislators, and other interested stakeholders have greatly contributed to the accelerated project work since 2014.

Technical Team and Working Groups
A technical team was put together in the summer of 2014 to expand the cleanup effort by working to solve the complex hydrogeologic and engineering challenges posed by this remediation site. The team is comprised of agency staff and contractors and includes national and world renowned experts in their fields.
