The objectives of the sediment remediation activities are to:
- Address the direct contact exposure pathway for MGP-related impacts in sediments and riverbank soil.
- Meet Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) compliance criteria for groundwater venting to the river.
- Restore the river to meet MDEQ flood stage requirements.
- Complete the work in a manner that is protective of people living, working and going to school in the vicinity of the site.
After the remediation work in the river and along the riverbank is completed, the site and surrounding area will be returned to pre-remediation land uses. Trails, walkways, benches and picnic tables will be restored in their present locations, and trees, shrubs and other plants will be reestablished.
