Our community’s Technical Advisor, Dr. Peter deFur will be in town to share information regarding the recently released Terry Creek Dredge Spoil Areas/Hercules Outfall Site Operable Unit One (OU1) – Outfall Ditch Consent Decree. This legally binding document includes information on how Hercules and the EPA plan to clean up the chemicals in Terry Creek, including pesticide manufacturing wastes, and all the other chemicals released from the chemical plant over the past 107 years.

This is an opportunity for our community to learn more about the Superfund Site, where we are in the process of the cleanup, and share your questions, comments, and concerns with our Technical Advisor.
