The Town of Silver City was recently awarded a Brownfields Cleanup Grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. As part of the grant requirements, an Analysis of Brownfields Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) must be prepared and presented for public input. The grant will cover cleanup of lead, asbestos and bat guano in the building, as well as stabilization of the collapsing pump room floor. Alternatives vary from “no action” to total removal of hazardous materials.
The ABCA can be viewed at the Town’s website
, or at the Town Assistant Engineer’s office on the first floor of the Town Annex, 1203 N. Hudson.
Written comments can be submitted by email
or to the Assistant Engineer at the Town of Silver City, P.O. Box 1188, Silver City, NM 88062.
