Wallace Yard and Spur Line
Consent Decree Signed
On April 20, 2010, a settlement was approved for cleanup of the Wallace Yard (former rail yard) and Spur Lines near Wallace, Idaho. The settlement was approved in federal court between the Union Pacific Railroad, BNSF Railway, Inc., and the State of Idaho and the United States on behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It includes an approved work plan and design drawings so that construction can begin this season, and after construction is done, the Wallace Yard will be available for reuse subject to private property transactions and local planning.
The Engineering Evaluation/Cost Analysis report is also available at each of the information repositories in Coeur d'Alene Basin. For more information about the site and the cleanup, please contact the site manager, Ed Moreen at 208-664-4588 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
