GM To Address Public On PCB Clean Up Effort

Last updated on Tuesday, December 3, 2013

(BEDFORD) - Ten years ago General Motors started its PCB cleanup project but now the project is winding down.

Project Manager Ed Peterson says on Wednesday at 6 p.m. officials will give a progress report on the environmental investigation and clean up and the public is invited to attend.

The meeting will be held at the CRA Field Trailer, south of the plant, located near the corner of Fourth Street and GM Drive. Parking will be available in the trailer's gravel lot.

In October officials reported there were only two areas off the company's property that still needed address those were:

"Spring 18," a spring near Bailey Scales Road, where water used to leak out of the creek. Peterson believes the leakage has stopped, and now the crews are focusing on restoring that area to a natural state.

"Parcel 40" and "Parcel 81," near Peerless Road, which also need restoration.

At this session, the public will be able to visit one-on-one with the project team to talk about specific and individual issues.

Information on the project is always available at www.BedfordPowertrainCorrectiveAction.com.

You can also look through project documents at the Bedford Public Library.
