Site Updates

April 2015

Negotiations with the site responsible parties to design and implement the site remedy began in April 2015 and should be completed by the end of 2015.  Remedy design would then begin in 2016.

Next steps for the site cleanup include negotiations with responsible parties to implement the cleanup followed by design and construction of the remedy. EPA hopes to begin cleanup negotiations by the end of 2014.

EPA will also revise the community involvement plan, and is asking citizens if they would like to get involved. Interviews were conducted in the community for a community involvement plan.

EPA worked with several residents and the City of Dayton on a reuse plan. The plan was presented to the City of Dayton on potential re-use of the property.

EPA reached out in the Turkish and Business leaders in May 2014 giving them an update on the site. Many residents, groups and city officials were interested in becoming part of a Community Advisory Group (CAG).

EPA, helped by the Ohio EPA, is proposing to install a solid waste cap, a perimeter extraction system for liquid seepage and gas extraction wells to clean up and contain remaining waste at the North Sanitary Landfill.

A meeting is in the works to start a kickoff of a CAG in late summer once the draft community involvement plan is distributed for the community to review.
