Ever wondered just what kind of chemicals were leached into the ground under the former Hardesty Federal Complex during its use as the Army Quartermaster depot? Environmental testing results will be released at a public information session Thursday, Dec. 5, at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the North-East Public Library, 6000 Wilson Rd.

Representatives from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) will join staff from Missouri’s Department of Natural Resources, Missouri Health and Senior Services, Terracon, an environmental engineering firm, and current site owner Hardesty Renaissance to review and discuss environmental samplings done on the site to date as well as how future clean ups of the property will be handled.

Spanish and Vietnamese interpreters will be on site to provide assistance.
