Trinity Uptown officials face difficult decision on site cleanup By BILL HANNA Fort Worth Star-Telegram (TX) July 18, 2009FORT WORTH — The Trinity River Vision Authority wants to clean up an environmentally sensitive area in the Trinity Uptown project that, without the authority's help, could become a no man's land in the middle of a bustling development.
For now, the authority's board members appear reluctant to commit any more money to clean up the site for this or three other canals that have been discussed because the project's estimated cost climbed to $880 million last week.
Tarrant County Administrator G.K. Maenius, president of the authority's board, said he believes that the authority will eventually tackle the issue of what to do with the polluted site.
"I think we're going to have to deal with it one way or the other," Maenius said.
The site, which is owned by Luminant, the power company formerly known as TXU, has lead contamination in the soil and vinyl chloride, among other solvents, in the groundwater.
