The EPA has extended the deadline for public comment on the South Cavalcade Street Superfund site in Houston, Texas until September 23, 2013. During this time period, the EPA invites interested parties to review the proposed cleanup plan and provide feedback. I decided to contribute by providing environmental information on the site’s history, contaminants, and remediation activities.
According to the EPA website, “The extension for public comment will allow the community more time to review the Agency’s proposal and provide valuable input to shape our proposed plan. EPA will conduct additional outreach with the community during this timeframe to share information and answer questions.
The proposed plan includes:
- Install additional monitoring wells and verify the boundaries of the contaminated ground water plume.
- Conduct long-term ground water monitoring to ensure early warning if the contaminated ground water plume get larger.
- Restrict access or use of ground water within the contaminated plume.”
