EPA Proposes Eighteen Mile Creek Cleanup

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a plan that calls for a variety of actions to address contamination in the Creek Corridor portion of the Eighteen Mile Creek Superfund Site, in Lockport, N.Y.

The Creek Corridor is approximately one mile in length and extends from the Erie Canal to Harwood Street in the City of Lockport.

The Creek and several adjacent properties are contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and other contaminants, including lead. This portion of the site cleanup would cost an estimated $23 million.

The cleanup proposal, which is the second phase of cleanup at this site, calls for the complete removal of contaminated sediment in the Creek Corridor.

The plan also proposes a combination of excavation and off of the site disposal, capping, and institutional controls to address contaminated soil at Upson Park, the former Flintkote Plant, White Transportation, and former United Paperboard Company properties.

During the removal of contaminated sediment, the dilapidated Clinton and William Street dams would be removed.

The EPA will hold a public meeting on September 7, 2016 to explain the proposed plan and take public comment on the various cleanup options. The meeting will be held at 7:00 pm at the 4-H Training Center at the Niagara County Fairgrounds. Written comments will be accepted until September 30, 2016.
