Summary of the grant application:

- Place a clean fill plug on these piles of soil to minimize risk to human or ecological health from contact with affected surface soils and the immediate vicinity.
- Revegetate the sites with native spices
- Perform site sampling after implementation, to ensure the soil layer is stable and contaminants do not leave the restored area
