Public comments sought for Phase III of Crescent Mills Brownfield site redevelopment

Work continues to clean up the former Louisiana Pacific Mill site in Cresent Mills.

Following several years of negotiating planning and liability challenges, cleanup efforts are well underway. Over the past two years, Sierra Institute for Community and Environment (Sierra Institute) has made significant progress in cleaning up the site and has been advancing a variety of planning processes necessary to redevelop this Brownfield site into a wood products campus.

Sierra Institute is applying for an EPA Brownfield Cleanup Grant to fund cleanup and redevelopment of the former Louisiana Pacific mill site. Prior to submitting the application, Sierra Institute is seeking public comment on the proposed action.

The following documents are available for review and comment either online or at the Sierra Institute’s office in Taylorsville, Ca at 4438 Main Street.
EPA Cleanup Application for Phase 3 (DRAFT)
EPA Cleanup Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) for Phase 3 (DRAFT)
