DTE Site on Broadway

Stopped. Watched. icon

The Huron River shore has been replaced with new fill and a rocky edge, as part of the DTE/MichCon remediation project. [photo] A backhoe dumps (assumed contaminated) soil onto a truck to be hauled away. It looks like the excavation has uncovered some kind of orange underground structure. [photo]

    Here’s another photo, of the tractor pushing topsoil over an area near the Broadway bridges while other workers are busy in the background. [photo]

    Workers also have been busy on the other side of the river on the exit from the Argo cascade. Looks like they have put in new grass and placed new rocks there, as well as replacing some concrete. Walking past the site on any day, I always see something new and when the wind is right, I’ll get the strong smell of a petroleum product. It reminds me of those cheap vinyl swimming pools left out in the sun on the hottest day in July.

    That orange underground structure may be the rusty remains of one of the round storage tanks for natural gas shown in the photo in the middle of this article: [link]
