The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) and Riverview-Trenton Railroad Co. (RTRR), entered into a Consent Order, called a “Corrective Action Consent Order," or CACO. Pursuant to the CACO, RTRR will undertake certain corrective actions within the approximately 76-acres that comprise the northern portion of the former McLouth Steel Corp facility.

RTRR has agreed to do the following:

  • Perform the first phase of the corrective action (environmental investigation and response activities) that includes investigation of the five known waste management units, or WMUs, on the northern portion of the site.
  • Clean up the WMUs if needed.
  • Investigate groundwater contamination.
  • Control dust.
  • Evaluate stormwater management options to eliminate flow to the Trenton Channel of the Detroit River.

EGLE will use the information collected during the first phase of the corrective action and other sources to help determine if additional phases of corrective action are necessary.
