Brunswick Wood Preserving Site 

Technical Assistance Update July 2008

By Dr. R. Kevin Pegg


A progress tour of the site was provided in late June to view ongoing remediation efforts at the creek and the impoundments, and to see changes in the position of the slurry walls prior to construction of the trenches.  Cleanup has advanced considerably. Treatment of the former impoundments is nearing completion and the large mounds of loose toxic materials are gone. The contour of the slurry wall was expanded to contain newly discovered waste deposits.  Contaminated sediment removal from the creek near the site is progressing. The site is much safer from the work conducted so far, and the workmanship of the remediation effort is being conducted with a high degree of professionalism.

Contaminated sediments are being removed from Burnett Creek
during periods of low tide.
