(Dallas, Texas –August 19, 2009) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $63,000 as part of a cooperative agreement to the City of Denton to clean a Brownfields site located at a potential Transit Park. Historically the Transit Park site, which is less than a mile away from the Downtown Square, was used for light industrial, commercial, and automotive repairs. The cleanup project will consist of two phases. The first phase will consist of removing asbestos floor tiling from one of the three buildings scheduled to be demolished. The second phase will consist of the development of a Municipal Setting Designation which will address groundwater contaminants: arsenic and lead. In addition to the cleanup project, the City of Denton will conduct outreach activities to inform citizens and surrounding communities about the site’s progress.
