On-Site Disposal Facility Borrow Area

Fernald stabilized a stretch of eroding banks along Paddys Run Stream
Fernald restores 190-acre area used for construction of the On-Site Disposal Facility    (6319D-3522)

To restore the 190-acre "Borrow Area" -- a primary source of soil and clay for the construction of the On-Site Disposal Facility (OSDF) -- Fernald will create a series of wetland basins and pools to carry water towards a permanent pond in the southwest corner of the project area. Workers will plant native grasses and shrubs in the excavated portion of the Borrow Area and trees and shrubs along the perimeter.

Fernald will complete Borrow Area activities in seven phases from 2002 through 2005, and implement grading and seeding in phases through 2006 to establish desired water features and native vegetation. Workers completed activities in the first two phases of the Borrow Area and initiated grading to create the planned drainage features during 2002.
