Subject: [CPEO-MEF] PCBs: Fort Worth (TX) water treatment and the Air Force
Fort Worth will get $4.8 million from Air Force for cleanup of former treatment plant

FORT WORTH - A long-delayed cleanup of pollution at the abandoned Riverside Wastewater Treatment Plant will continue, now that the City Council has finalized a $4.8 million settlement with the Air Force.

For seven years, the city has been working to determine the source of PCB pollution that is still in some of the plant’s equipment and surrounding land. At least some of the pollution came from the aircraft plant that is owned by the Air Force and has been operated by Convair, General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin.

It will take $16 million to $20 million and several years to fully clean up the site, Water Director Frank Crumb said. Any costs not covered by the settlement will likely be borne by Fort Worth water customers. The treatment plant has been closed since 1979.
