Information session regarding environmental findings at former Hardesty Federal Complex scheduled tonight

Northeast News
December 5, 2013

Residents are invited to attend a public meeting tonight (Dec. 5) to learn about the environmental sampling findings at the former Hardesty Federal Complex located in Historic Northeast.

The public meeting will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the North-East Public Library, 6000 Wilson Rd., Kansas City, Mo. Short presentations will be given at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. regarding the environmental sampling to-date and the next steps in the cleanup process. Representatives from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Terracon (an environmental engineering firm), and Hardesty Renaissance (current owner of the property) will be present to answer questions throughout the evening.

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

During World War II, the complex served as a U.S. Army Quartermaster Depot, storing military supplies and chemically treating soldiers’ clothing. Over time, some of the chemicals used in support of depot operations were released into the environment. The site is now undergoing an environmental study to determine the type and extent of pollutants due to historical operations.

The public is encouraged to attend the public information session to learn more about the facility and  past, present and future testing. This information session is a follow-up to the session held June 20, 2013, and to several conversations with community members. It is also an opportunity for those not yet familiar with the environmental work to learn more about all testing and results to date.

For additional information before the public information session, or if you will have special needs for the session, please leave a voicemail at (816) 926-6903 or email r6environment@gsa.gov. For more information, visit GSA’s website at http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/173655 and MDNR’s website http://dnr.mo.gov/env/hwp/fedfac/hardesty.htm.
