Comment Sought On Floodplain Cleanup

By From Staff And Wire Reports

A plan to spend $1 million cleaning up heavy metal contamination in the Osburn area is open for public comment.

The Silver Valley Natural Resource Trustees are planning to remove heavy metals from the Osburn Flats floodplain, restore the floodplain and store the contaminated soil in a repository on the north side of the South Fork of the Coeur d’Alene River at Osburn.

Documents on the project are available for review at the Wallace and Osburn public libraries. The public comment period for the plan is open until Aug. 15. Comments also are welcome at a public meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m., July 28, at the Shoshone County Public Safety Building in Wallace.
