Cleanup scheduled to start at Michigan superfund site.
Cleanup is scheduled to start this month at a federal Superfund site in the northwestern Lower Peninsula.
The work is at the former Grand Traverse Overall Supply Co. in Leelanau County's Elmwood Township. The site is near the unincorporated community of Greilickville, northwest of Traverse City.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will remove about 7,480 cubic yards of soil from the site and dispose of it at Glen's Landfill in Maple City.
The EPA no longer considers the soil as hazardous waste, allowing its disposal at a landfill.
Cindy Fairbanks, an environmental quality analyst at the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, says the soil is the source of a groundwater pollution plume that ends up in Grand Traverse Bay.
