EPA Meeting on Muskegon Sediment Cleanup Set for Tomorrow

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a public meeting on March 15 to discuss the ongoing Great Lakes Legacy Act cleanup at the former Zephyr Oil Refinery on Holton Road in Muskegon, Mich.

EPA and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality will summarize last year’s work and preview the next phase.

The former refinery is in the Muskegon Lake Area of Concern which the United States and Canada identified as one of 43 toxic hotspots in the Great Lakes basin. Lead and petroleum releases from the former refinery have contaminated sediment along Muskegon Lake.

This spring, EPA and MDEQ will remove approximately 44,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment from wetlands and a former fire suppression ditch.

Because the sediment has a strong petroleum odor, EPA’s contractors will monitor air quality and take measures to control odor during the removal.

EPA and MDEQ will also visit nearby residences to provide information and answer questions on March 14 -15.
