The environmental remediation work at the decommissioned Police & Fire Training Center and an adjacent property has been completed and the report documenting the work has been sent to Texas Commission for Environmental Quality (TCEQ). Once a certificate of completion is received this property will be ready for use by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
This environmental remediation is taking place in what will be the South section of the future bypass channel. Approximately 638 truckloads of contaminated soil were hauled off from the site. This work must be completed prior to the City of Fort Worth relocating a major sanitary sewer line, making way for construction of this section of the channel.
The property was accepted into the Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP) by TCEQ and has an approved Response Action Plan (RAP) to remediate the site. This project will follow the RAP to clean the site and make it ready for USACE use in the future. The work completed on site inluded the removal and hauling of contaminated soils on property to meet TCEQ requirements for a Certificate of Completion from VCP. Once a certificate of completion is received this property will be ready for use by USACE. To date, over 300,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil has been removed as part of the project. In addition to the removing up of contaminated soil, the remediation efforts have also treated and pumped over 44,000,000 gallons of water. The cleanup is vital to get the areas of the project up to residential standards and ready for the digging of the bypass channel.
