Environmental activities at the site are ongoing, and include installation of groundwater monitoring wells, soil vapor points, and passive soil gas modules. A pilot study is planned for 2017.

In 1998, an environmental consulting firm conducted a Phase II environmental assessment on a vacant parcel at 851 N. 3rd Street during investigative activities associated with the LAUST Corrective Action Program. Three soil borings were drilled and groundwater sampled from each boring for volatile organic compounds.  PCE was detected in all three groundwater samples, with concentrations ranging from 3.1 μg/L to 10.3 μg/L. Several investigations have been conducted since this original discovery, and the relevant reports are available from the download list below.
