MARYVILLE, Tenn. – August 11, 2015 – CSX continues to monitor the area surrounding the site of the July 1 derailment in coordination with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Water Resources Division (TDEC) under the Tennessee Division of Remediation Voluntary Oversight and Assistance Program.
Last week, CSX began loading excavated soils at the staging area on Old Mt. Tabor Road for permanent removal and disposal. CSX expects all soils to be removed by next week. Appropriate air monitoring is in place and will continue until all loading is complete. The soils are being disposed of in compliance with environmental regulations in a permitted hazardous waste facility.
CSX continues to monitor surface and ground water on a routine basis in coordination with TDEC. The well water advisory remains in effect as a precautionary measure as sampling continues.
CSX will continue weekly public updates to keep the community informed on monitoring results and progress. We remain in close contact with the City of Maryville and Blount County and appreciate their continued coordination as we work through restoration activities.
Community members who have been affected by the derailment can request an application for compensation by calling 1-877-TELLCSX (1-877-835-5279) or downloading an application at the following link: http://www.csx.com/index.cfm/about-csx/contact-us/blount-county-compensation-process/
