DEQ seeks public comment on draft work plan addressing contamination near Goodson Road, Caldwell
Friday, August 09, 2019
BOISE - The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking public comment on a draft work plan to address contamination at a rural site near Goodson Road north of Caldwell.
The property, located at 18252 and 18254 Goodson Road, has soil contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls and metals as a result of past illegal dumping on rural agricultural land.
The purpose of the Voluntary Remediation Work Plan is to guide cleanup of the site and describe implementation of the proposed cleanup method. The cleanup will involve targeted excavation and proper disposal of waste and contaminated soil. Upon the completion of remediation, the site is expected to continue to be used for agricultural purposes.
The draft work plan is available for review on DEQ’s website (download at right), at DEQ's Boise Regional Office, 1445 N. Orchard St., and the Caldwell Public Library, 1010 Dearborn St.
DEQ's Voluntary Cleanup Program works with eligible individuals; associations; local, state, and federal governments; and public and private corporations to revitalize properties with hazardous substance or petroleum contamination. To learn more, see link at right.
Submit written comments by September 9, 2019, at 5 p.m. MST on DEQ's website or by mail or email to:
