The cleanup is starting at the San Jacinto River Waste Pits Superfund Site according to THEA director Jackie Medcalf, and an announcement from the EPA in Dallas. Initially the work will involve the Southern Impoundment site, not the Northern Impoundment.
In addition to the announcement, EPA is planning a Community Town Hall Meeting on December 5. According to Jackie Medcalf, here is what we know about the plan:
Phase One of the cleanup started this week. This includes removing vegetation from the site, building fences, and building a water treatment facility on location.
Physical removal of the waste will start in late December or early January. About 25-30 trucks will haul the toxic waste away to disposal facilities.
