On June 23, 2018, Unisys began cleanup activities to remove contaminated soil from below the parking lot and bus loop located on the southeast side of EHS. Also referred to as Interim Remedial Measure (IRM) No. 2, this work is being coordinated with EHS in a phased approach to allow for the replacement of the parking lot and completion of the new bus loop and canopy before the start of the school year. Unisys completed the rest phase of cleanup in July on schedule for EHS canopy construction and completed the remaining cleanup and back ll activities by August 28th for EHS bus loop and parking lot construction.

As part of the cleanup, approximately 11,000 tons of hazardous waste have been removed from the site as well as 6,000 tons of waste deemed non-hazardous. 

Additionally, cracks in the slab and floors of the school are being sealed as a precaution. This work is expected to be done by the first of September.

It's almost like the district has been doing what's right all along and all the hype was for nothing.
