Beartown #2

The Beartown Road #2 site is an approximate ½ acre portion of an 80 acre parcel of Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) Trust land. The property is vacant forest land. The Little Carp Creek runs northeast through the property. Unregulated dumping of household garbage, tires, oil filters and appliances extends approximately ¼ acre directly adjacent to the Little Carp Creek in a ravine bordering Beartown Road. A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment was completed in May 2011. Site issues consisted of open dumping of hazardous and household waste. NRD staff conducted a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment in July 2011 consisting of 5 soil samples.
