Mark McPherson, the chief of land and water quality for the county, called me with an update of the meeting between his office and Renova Partners, the developer working to decontaminate the former fuel storage facility. Click here or scroll down for background.

There’s not much to report, he said – his office is working with Renova to reevaluate the firm’s existing community health and safety plan in light of the homeless shelter next door.

He said some new considerations might include increased coverage of the excavation sites overnight, because people will be using the adjacent site 24 hours a day.

We’ll have a full story on this shelter and the environmental/health concerns tomorrow.
