Meeting on Lower Rouge River Sediment Cleanup This Week

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold a public information meeting on March 28 to discuss the Great Lakes Legacy Act cleanup of contaminated sediments in the Lower Rouge River Old Channel in Detroit, Mich.

EPA is partnering with Honeywell, Inc. on the cleanup.

According to the EPA’s official announcement, the meeting will feature a presentation on the project, a question-and-answer session and informational posters.

The Lower Rouge River Old Channel is in the Rouge River Area of Concern which the United States and Canada identified as one of 43 toxic hotspots in the Great Lakes basin.

The channel is located adjacent to Zug Island, a highly industrialized area of Detroit. Sediment in the channel is contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from coal tar and petroleum products.

Beginning this spring, EPA and Honeywell will remove 70,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment from the bottom of the channel.

The meeting will take place at People’s Community Services of Metropolitan Detroit, Delray Neighborhood House, 420 South Leigh Street, Detroit.
