EPA: OPEN HOUSE AT THERMO-CHEM SITE JUNE 2


U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 will hold an 
open house to discuss cleanup progress at the
Thermo-Chem Superfund site, Muskegon, MI.  The meeting will 
be held Tuesday, June 2, from 4 to 7 p.m., at the
site, 4375 Evanston Rd., Egelston Township, Muskegon.

EPA has recently completed construction of the soil and ground-water 
cleanup facilities at the site. In addition, old
buildings, debris, and contaminated soil have been removed and 
properly disposed.

At the open house, residents can tour the new facilities and learn 
about the next phase of the cleanup from EPA
and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality staff. Representatives 
from the companies responsible for the
cleanup will also be available to answer questions. Parking is 
available at the front of the site, off Evanston Road.

Residents who want more information about the cleanup but 
cannot attend the open house may call EPA's
Community Involvement Coordinator Cheryl L. Allen at 
1-800-621-8431.  Site documents are available for review at
Egelston Town Hall and at Hackley Public Library, 316 West Webster, Muskegon. 

The 10-acre Thermo-Chem site was a solvent reprocessing and 
liquid waste disposal facility from 1969 to 1980.
Hazards being addressed at the site include ground water, soil, 
and sludges contaminated with industrial chemicals.
