Sterling Takes Step Towards Clean Up at Stanley National Facility

The City of Sterling took another step towards the clean-up of the Stanley-National facility Monday night.

During the meeting the council was asked to approve the bid for the removal of Hazardous Waste Material at 1st Avenue, The work would consist of removal of all treatment and chemical tanks, containment’s, pipe enclosures, all piping and equipment used to transport the electroplating wastewater.

The completion date projection is April 30th and City Manager Scott Schumard said the task is actually simple and should be completed by that time.

The city awarded the contract to O6 Environmental fo $163,500 and not to exceed $190,000. O6 Environmental was not the low bidder. Schumard said the low bidder had issues with the work and the city discovered they had several EPA violations in the past. Schumard said they contacted the business and when they did not respond the felt comfortable asking O6 Environmental to do the job.
