PUBLIC NOTICE – 348
The Downtown Environmental Alliance (DEA) has submitted an Institutional Controls Plan for the Capitol City Plume (EPA I.D.

The site has undergone extensive soil, groundwater and soil vapor sampling and investigation. The Institutional Controls Plan presents the DEA’s selected remedy for the site. The Department has completed the review of the Institutional Controls Plan and determined the plan to be complete. The Department has prepared a draft modified Settlement Agreement to incorporate the Institutional Controls Plan by reference.
