Recently, Wolverine Worldwide and GZA provided the Wolverine Citizen Advisory Group with their preliminary plans for the House Street Feasibility Study. Their willingness to reach out to the CAG and the neighbors and to seek feedback was certainly welcomed and appreciated. However, there are many concerns with the options provided and several significant questions remain about these plans. Please review the links below to learn more about the contamination at this site, and Wolverine’s suggestions for addressing this. The public is also encouraged to attend the Wolverine CAG meeting on February 19th where this will be discussed further.
Wolverine World Wide will be making a presentation to the CAG on Thursday from 7:00-8:00 p.m., concerning the House Street Feasibility Study (FS). The FS document is required to be submitted to EGLE by February 19, 2021. Updates will be provided on the remediation alternatives proposed for the House Street Site.
