U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is recommending habitat enhancement along with additional vegetated cover be used to address the undeveloped floodplain along Stony Creek contaminated by pollution from the former Bridgestone Americas (Firestone) facility. Firestone contaminated Wilson Ditch and Stony Creek with an industrial chemical compound called polychlorinated biphenyls, better known as PCBs. Residential areas in the Stony Creek floodplain were cleaned up as an interim measure in 2008-2009 while additional, area-wide investigations proceeded. This latest cleanup proposal tackles remaining environmental issues in the undeveloped floodplain section of the Stony Creek study area.
