Update from RACER Trust
RACER, along with their contractor The Environmental Quality Co. (EQ) and consultant Conestoga Rovers and Associates, Inc.. (CRA) have begun implementing the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) approved remediation activities at the CVO Site (2901 Tyler Road, Ypsilanti, MI). The work over the past two weeks has included the installation of site erosion control measures, assembly of a water treatment system, and a sewer re-route. Excavation began with the removal of reusable overburden soils that are staged on plastic with straws bales used along the perimeter of the stockpiles. The stockpiles are covered daily with plastic. Perimeter air monitoring levels have been significantly below actions levels established in the MDEQ and EPA approved work plan.
