Toxic waste cleanup at Fort Wainwright housing complex deemed a success by Sam Friedman Fairbanks News-Miner (AK) May 4, 2011FAIRBANKS - The discovery of buried toxic waste delayed the completion and opening of the Taku Gardens housing on Fort Wainwright in 2005. Now, after years of cleanup, the 55-unit development could be ready for residents as early as October 2012, according to speakers at a town hall Tuesday on Fort Wainwright.
The top level of soil is now considered safe, although new tenants will not be able to dig wells or garden without using raised beds because of contamination deep in the ground, said Joe Malen, the Army’s cleanup manager.
The Army anticipates the private firm North Haven will operate Taku Gardens, but it is prepared if the company is not interested, said Mike Meeks, director of public works at Fort Wainwright.
