Subject: [CPEO-BIF] ‘North River’ site, Fort Wayne, Indiana
More clean-up needed at ‘North River’ site; $283,400 federal grant approved

Fort Wayne News-Sentinel (IN)
July 16, 2019

The city paid $4.63 million for the 29-acre “North River” former industrial site in 2017. Now a federal grant of up to $283,400 will pay for additional environmental clean up and monitoring.

The city’s Redevelopment Department will soon begin remediatio work at the former OmniSource scrap metals recycling site thanks to a grant from the Indiana Brownfields Program, funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA has approved up to $283,400 for removal of up to 2,400 tons of potentially contaminated soils. Additionally, 10 groundwater monitoring wells will be installed as part of the grant. There are five existing monitoring wells on the site at this time, and samples from those existing monitoring wells have not indicated any groundwater concerns.
