IDAHO DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY: DEQ seeks public comment on draft work plan addressing contamination at a site in Burley

Idaho Department of Environmental Quality issued the following announcement on Aug. 23.

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking public comment on a draft work plan to address soil contamination at a site in Burley, Idaho.

The property, located at 320 W. Main St., has soil contaminated with lead, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and low levels of polychlorinated biphenyls as a result of past use of the property for recycling activities, including lead-acid battery breaking and recycling.

The purpose of the Voluntary Remediation Work Plan is to guide cleanup of the site and describe implementation of the proposed cleanup method. The cleanup will involve targeted excavation and proper treatment and disposal of contaminated soil. Upon the completion of remediation, the site is expected to continue to be used for commercial or non-residential purposes.

The draft work plan is available for review on DEQ’s website (download at right), at DEQ's Twin Falls Regional Office (650 Addison Ave. W., Suite 110), and at the Burley Public Library (1300 Miller Ave.).

DEQ's Voluntary Cleanup Program works with eligible individuals, associations, local, state, and federal government, and public and private corporations to revitalize properties with hazardous substance or petroleum contamination. To learn more, see link at right.

Submit written comments by September 23, 2019, at 5 p.m. MST on DEQ's website or by mail or email to:
