Brownfield to reimburse doctors for cleanup

Traverse City Record-Eagle
September 27, 2008

TRAVERSE CITY -- A group of Traverse City doctors will front an estimated $476,000 to help clean contamination left by area gas station owners.

The doctors plan to build medical offices at the southwest corner of Front and Division streets, and the Grand Traverse County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority eventually will reimburse their cleanup costs through the capture of local property taxes, said county brownfield director Jean Derenzy.

The authority may then file a lawsuit or join a state action to recover costs from those responsible for the contamination.

The physicians agreed to sink wells and pump out residual gasoline that is floating on top of groundwater at their site on the bank of Kids Creek.
