Public meeting on Harshaw Chemical and Towpath Trail
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District's project delivery team will be available November 12 to answer questions regarding the Harshaw Chemical Company Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP) Site and the upcoming deconstruction of Building G-1 to allow further investigation of the groundwater at the site.
The 55-acre Harshaw Chemical Company FUSRAP Site is located at 1000 Harvard Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio.
From 1944 to 1959, the former Harshaw Chemical Company was contracted by the Manhattan Engineer District and the Atomic Energy Commission to produce uranium that was then sent to Oak Ridge, Tenn., for isotopic separation and enrichment.
The pollution on the Harshaw Chemical site has caused many logistical challenges to building Stage 1 of the Towpath Trail Extension Project. Planners now believe that they have a viable alternative that circumnavigates the toxic site.
This is an opportunity to learn more about the site cleanup process and how the Army Corps is addressing related groundwater issues.
