NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will host an open house at North Providence Town Hall on Wednesday, Aug. 1 from 7 to 9 p.m. The open house is for interested residents who want to learn about the restoration of the Allendale Dam and details about the "non-time critical" cleanup action at the Centredale Manor Superfund Site.
The cleanup site is located on Smith Street in North Providence and includes the Woonasquatucket River and the flood plain between Route 44 downstream to, and including, the Lymansville Dam.
The next phase of cleanup addresses the shores of the Woonasquatucket River between the Centredale Manor and Lymansville Dam. The plan involves the excavation of about 2,500 cubic yards of dioxin contaminated sediments and bank.. The excavated material will be excavated and transported off-site for treatment. The plan also calls for the restoration of Allendale Dam.
