La reunión pública: Sitio del Superfondo del Penacho de Solventes Clorados de Grant

7 – 9pm MST

La Región 6 de la Agencia de Protección Ambiental de los Estados Unidos (EPA), en coordinación con el Departamento del Medio Ambiente de Nuevo México (NMED), organizará una reunión comunitaria virtual para proporcionar una actualización del estado de la limpieza del Sitio del Superfondo del Penacho de Solventes Clorados de Grants (Sitio GCSP), ubicado en Grants, condado de Cibola, Nuevo México.

El Sitio GCSP consiste en la contaminación del suelo y aguas subterráneas que contienen los solventes clorados tetracloroetileno (PCE) y tricloroetileno (TCE). La presencia de estos solventes es el resultado de liberaciones pasadas de operaciones de limpieza en seco. La limpieza ha incluido el uso de tecnologías de aplicación de calor para destruir los contaminantes en el suelo y la introducción de microorganismos para consumir y descomponer los contaminantes en las aguas subterráneas. Además, se han instalado sistemas de tratamiento del aire interior en varios edificios residenciales para reducir los niveles de vapores de solventes que ascienden desde las aguas subterráneas y se introducen en los edificios.

La reunión comunitaria virtual está programada para el martes, 7 de febrero de 2023, de 7:00 p. m. a 9:00 p. m., hora de la montaña. Las instrucciones para asistir a la reunión virtual, utilizando el software Microsoft Teams, están disponibles en Internet en http://www.epa.gov/superfund/grants-chlorinated-solvents.

Alternativamente, se puede acceder a la reunión por teléfono llamando al (844) 608-7693 Estados Unidos (llamada gratuita), ID de conferencia telefónica: 689 573 506 #

Public Meeting: Grants Chlorinated Solvent Plume Superfund Site

7 – 9pm MST

The United States Environmental Protection Agency Region 6 (EPA), in coordination with the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED), will be hosting a virtual community meeting to provide a status update on the cleanup of the Grants Chlorinated Solvent Plume Superfund Site (GCSP Site), located in Grants, Cibola County, New Mexico.

The GCSP Site consists of soil and groundwater contamination containing the chlorinated solvents tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE).  The presence of these solvents is a result of past releases from dry cleaning operations.  The cleanup has included the use of technologies to apply heat to destroy the contaminants in soil and introduce micro-organisms to consume and breakdown the contaminants in groundwater.  In addition, indoor air treatment systems have been installed in several residential buildings to reduce the levels of solvent vapors that moved upward from groundwater and intruded into buildings.  

The virtual community meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 7, 2023, from 7:00-9:00 PM Mountain Time. Instructions for attending the virtual meeting, using Microsoft Teams software, are available on the internet at http://www.epa.gov/superfund/grants-chlorinated-solvents.

Alternatively, the meeting can be accessed by telephone at (844) 608-7693 United States (Toll-free), Phone Conference ID: 689 573 506#
