Grant Application Summary:

Recent testing on Kingman Island indicated detectable concentrations of numerous Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH), and metals above the EPA Regional Screening Levels (RSLs) and DOEE Risk‐Based Screening Levels (RBSLs)

If funded the grant project would accomplish the following:

  • Remove existing vegetation from soil piles on Kingman Island
  • Place a clean fill cap on these soil piles to minimize risk to human or ecological health from contact to impacted surface soils and immediate vicinity
  • Revegetate the sites with native spices
  • Conduct post implementation sampling of the sites, to ensure that the soil cap is stable, and contaminants are not leaving the restored area
