Soil removal begins at site for logistics centerDecember 2, 2019
By The Associated Press
EAST CHICAGO — Crews have begun removing tainted soil from a northwestern Indiana site where a company plans to build a large logistics center.
The $26.6 million remediation of the former DuPont industrial site in East Chicago began in September with the removal of trees from the area.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that crews recently began removing about 60,000 cubic yards (45,873 cubic meters) of soil.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved a cleanup plan for arsenic, lead, zinc and other contaminants.
East Chicago Gateway Partners plans to build a 1 million-square-foot (92,903-square-meter) logistics center at the site once cleanup is completed.
The site is near the Gary/Chicago International Airport and major highways. It’s also in a federal Opportunity Zone that provides investors with tax breaks on capital gains income investments.
