Wynn Everett announced the contractor on Tuesday that will clean up one of the most polluted stretches of land in the entire Northeast.
Charter Environmental of Boston won the bid recently to remediate the site where Wynn will construct its $1.7 billion resort casino, construction that is projected to begin next spring.
Charter President Robert Delhome was on hand Tuesday night in Everett (too late for Independent deadlines) to begin discussions about the clean up effort on the site that once was home to Monsanto Chemicals. It’s a site that is so badly contaminated that since Monsanto left, nothing has been proposed or developed on the site – which borders the Mystic River.
Charter is reported a veteran owned firm, which counts towards Wynn’s diversity requirements for vendors with the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC).
Veteran-owned businesses were one area in the diversity of vendors that Wynn said it hoped to improve upon during a meeting with the MGC last month.
Also scheduled to present on Tuesday was Matt Smith, a project manager for GZA GeoEnvironmental.
Wynn consultant Chris Gordon was also on the agenda.
The presentation in Everett’s Connolly Center was scheduled to discuss the ins and outs of the clean up process. In particular, one main point to be discussed was how many trucks would be making trips from the site and what route they would be taking.
Wynn has not been able to specify that yet until having a remediation contractor on board.
With that contractor picked, those key details were expected to be clarified.
