Wolverine Selects Nationally-Known Contractor for Cleanup Work at Former Tannery

In connection with the cleanup work Wolverine is conducting this fall at its former tannery in Rockford, Wolverine is pleased to announce that it has selected Sevenson Environmental Services, Inc. as its lead contractor.

Sevenson’s roots go back to 1917, and today the firm is among the country’s most respected and accomplished environmental remediation contractors, having completed more than 1,475 projects with a total contract value exceeding $4.8 billion. Many of these projects were completed along rivers and other bodies of water, making Sevenson uniquely qualified to lead our efforts here in Rockford.

We described the work and provided detailed maps in a post last week. This week, Sevenson started to move trailers, construction equipment, and supplies onto the site, and the White Pine Trail is being re-routed for the duration of the work. Also, we will share a detailed schedule of all phases of the work once it has been finalized and approved.

Wolverine will be using this blog to keep the community informed as work progresses in the weeks and months ahead, and will also make information available at kiosks and other locations available to the public. In addition, residents with questions are encouraged to contact Wolverine directly at HouseStreet@wwwinc.com or (616) 866-5627.
