CHICAGO (July 28, 2009) - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 and U.S. Steel will hold a public meeting Tuesday, Aug. 4, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the main branch of the Gary Public Library, 220 W. 5th Ave.

Representatives from EPA, Indiana Department of Environmental Management and U.S. Steel will discuss and answer questions about the use, operation and air monitoring of the remediation waste disposal unit (sometimes called a corrective action management unit or CAMU) at the site. The CAMU was used to dispose of sediments from the Grand Calumet River and, subject to EPA approval, may be used for disposal of remediation waste from the cleanup of Gary Works.

An official document file has been set up at the Gary Public Library.
