TUTU WELLS SUPERFUND SITE
TUTU, ST. THOMAS, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS

Tutu, St. Thomas

On Tuesday, October 7, 2003, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold an informal Public Availability Session to discuss activities at the Tutu Wells Superfund Site from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM. The information session is an opportunity for community members to meet with EPA representatives to ask questions and discuss concerns related to activities at the site.
EPA recently secured funding to implement the Remedial Action (RA) at the Tutu Wells Site. The RA includes cleanup of the Curriculum Center soils and site-wide groundwater. Groundwater cleanup will include the installation of recovery wells to contain the spread of groundwater contamination and the construction of two treatment facilities to treat the extracted groundwater. In-situ (in place) soil vapor extraction (SVE) treatment will be used to address Curriculum Center soils. It is anticipated that construction and initial startup of the treatment systems will be completed by Spring 2004.
Interested citizens are encouraged to stop by the Availability Session to be held at the Department of Education Curriculum Center located at 44-46 Konges Gade in Tutu, St. Thomas, any time between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM. EPA representatives will be available to address questions and concerns regarding the cleanup construction. For further information, contact:
