A representative for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said Tuesday it had completed its emergency response to groundwater contamination at the former Electro-Plating Services, having spent $3.1 million, and will pass oversight on to state officials.
“Our goal was to stabilize the site … and return the site to EGLE for long-term remediation,” said Tricia Edwards of the EPA during an online update, referring to the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy. She discussed over a year’s work at a “very complicated site.”
Edwards said weekly monitoring for hazardous chemicals at the Madison Height site in recent months showed “no imminent threat to humans or the environment.”
