NPS anticipates that EQIS will re-mobilize in late June to conduct additional excavation in any of the four West Site grids that continue to have dioxin-contaminated soil. If soil sampling results support the conclusion that the contaminated soil has been removed from these grids, then it is anticipated that EQIS will re-mobilize to remove haul roads and excavate and sample in the five remaining grids on the West Site that have been used for haul roads and staging.
EQIS is developing plans for grading and revegetating the East Site. Once those plans are approved by NPS and all sampling results have been confirmed, EQIS will survey and begin grading the East Site, most likely in the fall of 2011. Plans for West Site grading and revegetation will begin as soon as all West Site grids achieve the cleanup levels. East and West Site revegetation may be complete by the spring of 2012.
