Vacated Kokomo GM Site Remediation Could BeginPosted: Updated:
Preliminary work to clean up a site that was home to automotive manufacturing for more than 70 years could get underway next week. The Kokomo Tribune reports The RACER Trust is planning to invest more than $7 million into the project. You can read a full description of the Howard County property by clicking here.
The RACER Trust is an organization that prepares and re-markets abandoned former General Motors sites.
A RACER Trust official tells the paper it is looking to excavate the bad soil and combine it with lime to cause a reaction that would disperse contaminants.
The facility was demolished in 1993 and was originally erected by Apperson Brothers Automobile Co. in 1915.
It served as a GM Delco circuit board manufacturing facility from the mid-1950s until 1991
