Published June 10, 2015

ST. LOUIS – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District will hold an open house on the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program and current sampling efforts Wednesday, June 24, 2015 at the Hazelwood Civic Center, 8969 Dunn Road, Hazelwood, Missouri, 6 to 8 p.m.

FUSRAP protects human health and the environment by addressing the risks at designated sites contaminated with radioactive waste from the Nation’s early atomic weapons development and production activities. FUSRAP is committed to protecting human health and the environment, executing approved remedy for cleaning up radioactive contamination above health-based cleanup guidelines, and minimizing adverse effects on area business operations. Since 1997, more than 1 million cubic yards of soil have been remediated by St. Louis District FUSRAP.

The open house will provide the public with updates on Coldwater Creek/North County sampling. In addition, the public will have the opportunity to learn about the FUSRAP program and discuss their questions with FUSRAP experts. Using an open house format allows the public the opportunity to address specific issues, concerns, or questions one-on-one with FUSRAP subject matter experts.

“This is an important mission for the Corps of Engineers, and our continued success relies in great part on keeping the communities we serve informed,” said Mike Petersen, chief of Public Affairs for the St. Louis District. “We look forward to providing an update on how work is progressing, and addressing any questions or concerns people may have about FUSRAP.”
