"Phillips 66 is conducting a pilot study to remediate residual ethylene dichloroethane (EDC) impacts south of Isle of Capri Boulevard in a safe and proactive manner. The purpose of the pilot study is to test the technology that will be used to remediate the residual EDC impacts prior the full scale implementation. We will continue to work with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD), Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ), as well as local stakeholders on this important study."
"Several years of groundwater sampling and analysis have demonstrated that EDC impacts in the path of the new I-10 bridge are below established cleanup standards, and no cleanup is required in the path of the proposed new bridge. This pilot study is intended to evaluate cleanup methods that would be employed south of Isle of Capri Boulevard, and away from the proposed new bridge."
