Clean Soil Backfill of TCRA Excavation Scheduled for Week of January 14, 2008

January 11, 2008

Beginning on January 15, 2008 the RFS Facility Team will backfill the excavation pit of the former Forest Products Laboratory Wood Treatment Laboratory. The soil in this area was removed in October 2007 under a Department of Toxic Substances Control Time Critical Removal Action and shipped for off-site disposal. The clean backfill material is currently stored at the RFS between Buildings 149 and 128. DTSC has approved use of this soil for backfill. It is expected that it will take two days to complete the backfill activity. Dust control measures will be implemented during the backfill.
