Public Notice of EPA Brownfields Cleanup Grant Application by Morgantown Utility Board
The Morgantown Utility Board (MUB) is announcing plans to submit a cleanup grant application to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for cleanup of the former Dinsmore Tire site, located at 195, 197, and 199 Don Knotts Boulevard in Morgantown, WV. This property has had environmental assessment activities performed in the past, including a Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessment. Assessment results indicate the presence of volatile organic compounds, semi-volatile organic compounds and heavy metals in soils and groundwater at the site. These environmental impacts require remediation prior to site redevelopment and reuse.
This application is requesting EPA funds to help fund cleanup activities on the site. The EPA encourages public participation in these applications to ensure the local community is being informed and allowed to comment and provide input into the project.
As part of MUB’s community interaction efforts, the public is invited and encouraged to review and comment on proposed cleanup plans. A summary of the project and proposed activities, and an Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives, will be made available November 9, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. during a public meeting hosted by MUB. The meeting will take place during MUB’s regularly scheduled board meeting at the Morgantown City Hall, City Council Chambers located 389 Spruce Street, Morgantown, WV 26505. These materials will also be available for public review through December 1, 2021 at the MUB offices, located at 278 Greenbag Road, Morgantown, WV.
