Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Lewisburg Wholesale building site, Ronceverte, West Virginia
Ronceverte site focus of Brownfields Grant application

The Ronceverte Development Corporation and Ronceverte Main Street intend to
submit a grant application to the Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields
program for cleanup of the former Lewisburg Wholesale building site.


The Lewisburg Wholesale property has had environmental assessment work done in
the past. Originally built in the 1920s, the structure sited on property at 107
Chestnut St. in Ronceverte has been used by several different businesses and for
multiple uses.

If all goes as planned, cleanup of the site will occur in two phases. Phase I
will include demolition of the structure and will be funded through the West
Virginia RISE Slum and Blight Program. Funded through the Brownfields Grant (if
awarded), Phase II will include capping of the site to minimize contact with
remaining contaminants in the subsurface soils and then entering the site into
the West Virginia Voluntary Remediation Program.
