Current Activities
On June 11, 2009 EPA contractors and landscape professionals remobilized to the site.  The EPA OSC and the lead contractor evaluated all the properties to identify the landscaping needs for each location.  Many lawns were reseeded and were fertilized. Perennials and shrubs were planted to replace those lost to the removal action.  Some re-grading was needed on the main excavation area, and after re-seeding, an erosion prevention mat was placed on the slopes. 

Planned Removal Actions
The OSC will distribute copies of the individual property reports to the property owners.

Next Steps
Control of the site will be remanded to the State of Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management.No further action.  Case closed
