Contaminated soil at the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority’s headquarters – located at 2700 S. Industrial Highway – will be evacuated and remediated under a $119,980 contract with PM Environmental. The AATA board voted to approve the contract at its Feb. 21, 2013 meeting.
The remediation activity dates back to 2010, and will address an in-ground gas leak that was discovered when the AATA upgraded a fuel tank monitoring system. A final assessment report (FAR), based on monitoring wells and ground water sampling, was filed with the Michigan Dept of Environmental Quality on Dec. 15, 2011.
The amount will be reimbursed by the AATA’s insurance carrier, Chartis, which is a subsidiary of American International Group Inc. (AIG). The AATA’s deductible for its policy was $25,000, which the AATA has already expended.
This brief was filed from the downtown location of the Ann Arbor District Library at 343 S. Fifth, where the AATA board holds its meetings. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
