Future Open House Informational Sessions

On Tuesday, September 18, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold an open-house information session to discuss the 2018 work activities associated with the Grasse River Superfund Site. Construction work on land-based facilities to support future in-river work resumed in late May 2018.

EPA and Arconic staff will be available between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. to discuss the work and answer questions from the public. This is an informal opportunity for one-on-one dialogue with members of the project team. Open houses will be held monthly (future dates and locations TBA) while construction is underway.

2017 - 2018 Projects

Construction on land-based facilities to support future in-river work for the Grasse River remediation project started in spring 2017 and will continue in 2018. This work includes construction of a staging area next to the river, near the intersection of County Route 42 and Route 131.
