Environmental Protection Agency crews will begin demolition and soil excavation work Monday at a former manufactured gas plant Superfund site in Norfolk.
The site has been contaminated with a number of toxic chemicals. Plans call for excavating contaminated soil to a depth of 10 feet below the ground surface and then taking samples from the area. If samples show contamination exceeds cleanup goals, the excavation will continue.
Work is scheduled to be completed by the end of April. The EPA will then continue groundwater monitoring. The project will cost an estimated $2.8 million.
