The North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission of Sullivan County says it's been selected by the Environmental Protection Agency to receive more than $98,000 to clean up buildings on 8 parcels of land.

They're in the footprint of the future East Locust Creek reservoir---which is to address water needs in Sullivan and adjacent counties. The Commission says the vacant properties have been used for residential, agricultural, and commercial purposes, with some contaminated by asbestos, PCB's, and pesticides.

The North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission says, once hazardous materials are removed from the structures, the Commission will execute a demolition, salvage, and removal plan. Because the East Locust Creek Reservoir design and construction are overseen by federal and state agencies, and because it's a water supply reservoir, the Commission must follow what the Commission called stringent guidelines in hazardous materials removal.

Commission Chairman, Rick Gardner, said the grant is great news, and will get the Commission one step closer to removing dangerous buildings which pose a health and safety risk. He said he's most grateful for the Environmental Protection Agency's approval, and support for the grant from Senators McCaskill and Blunt, and from
Congressman Graves. Gardner said the Congressional Delegation has been nothing short of amazing in their support for the reservoir. He said their bipartisanship is exactly what is needed.

Commission General Manager, Brad Scott, said---with over 3,100 acres purchased---which is 70%---it's time to begin clearing structures from the lake footprint. Scott also said he's grateful for support the lake has received on federal and state levels, and he feels blessed elected officials have worked together to help what he called this critical regional project.

The North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission says anyone caught vandalizing or stealing from Commission property will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The Commission asks suspicious activity to be reported to the Sullivan County Sheriff's Department. The Commission says its property is monitored by electronic surveillance.

The North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission also says---while work will proceed on properities it owns, not all properties at Boynton are owned by the Commission.
