The city took over the property on East Broad Avenue next to the river in 2002, knowing it might be contaminated with lead.
The EPD ordered the city to clean it up, and they have at a cost of more than $900,000.
Now, there may be more work ahead. "They have come back and had some indications from EPD that there are some other chemical evaluations or monitoring that they might want us to do," said Bruce Maples, City Engineer.
The city has installed monitoring wells at the site, and is responsible for all cleanup there.
