The BoRit Asbestos Superfund Site Community Advisory Group announced that it is scheduled to meet with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection on Wednesday to discuss a proposed residential construction on the Bast parcel in Ambler.
The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Upper Dublin Township Building, 801 Loch Alsh Ave., Fort Washington.
The Community Advisory Group works with the EPA to oversee the remediation of asbestos sites in the area. The CAG said the Bast parcel, located near the Ambler train station, has been approved for apartment construction by the DEP but still consists of 90 percent asbestos.
Scheduled to address the meeting is the developer of the project, John Zaharzak. He is expected to explain how he will clean and construct on the parcel, and the DEP is expected to review its guidelines for development of the parcel. - Inquirer staff
