Story map showcases innovative way to control demolition dust at McLouth Steel site in Trenton
August 11, 2021
The latest story map from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy features an innovative method used to minimize demolition dust on part of the fomer McLouth Steel site.
The challenge involved the demolition of five, multi-story stoves that were lined from top to bottom with brick that contained asbestos.
The first attempts to demolish the stoves resulted in violations. EGLE staff worked with the contractor to develop a robust system of water spray to keep dust on site and reduced risk to the public.
