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.
