A notice in this week's District Register
says that JPI has applied to remediate the land it recently purchased at 23 I Street
, as part of the District Department of the Environment's Voluntary CleanUp Program
. Quoting: "The application identifies low to elevated levels of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) and Benzene in soil and TPH, Benzene, and methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) in groundwater." JPI is planning a 420-unit residential building with ground-floor retail on the site, with construction expected to begin sometime in 2008. The VCP application for 23 I is not yet online, but you can see JPI's 2005 application for 100 I Street
and the city's 2006 application to clean up the stadium site
to get the idea.
