A special meeting of the Zionsville Redevelopment Commission was held on May 3 specifically to discuss the environmental concerns on the Dow property deal.
August Mack Environmental presented the RDC a comprehensive study with results of its subsurface investigation.
The Phase II subsurface investigation determined the areas that were suspected to have contamination were not an environmental threat to the proposed development. Samples from a total of 22 borings identified metals and other traces of contaminants found at the surface level but were under the screening levels set by the Indiana Dept. of Environmental Management.
The study was performed by August Mack Environmental, a full-service environmental health and safety consulting firm that specializes in regulatory compliance, environmental due diligence/risk management, site investigation, remediation and sustainability services.
Brian Wilson, a representative with August Mack Environmental, gave specific details on the boring locations throughout the site and his firm’s conclusion of the study to the RDC.
“We did not identify any constituents of concern at reporting levels above the IDEM screening levels,” Wilson said. “In our subsurface samples, we found no chemicals of concern above our lab reporting levels.”
The Zionsville Redevelopment Commission held the second of the two special meetings last Friday to discuss the timeline, Crowe Financial analysis, assignment agreement with the Zionsville Community Schools and the exclusive development agreement with Rockland Development, LLC.
More details on the proceedings of the second special meeting to come.
