Public comments on Allied Site cleanup plan due Dec 1

The EPA is taking public comments on their proposed cleanup plan.  The plan recommends consolidating the existing contaminated sediment on to 27 acres of the property, capping, and long-term monitoring.  This plan will allow for areas outside of the cap to be redeveloped.  A full copy of the cleanup plan and other supplemental materials can be found on EPA’s Kalamazoo River Project website, including how to submit your comments for public record.  The City of Kalamazoo and many community organizations are in support of this remedy at the former Allied Landfill site.  [Download the factsheet]
