Wolverine Worldwide is preparing a Feasibility Study to evaluate options and next steps for our House Street property. This process is part of the comprehensive PFAS remediation plan agreed to last year in the Consent Decree between Wolverine Worldwide, the State of Michigan, and Plainfield and Algoma Townships.
As part of our work on the Feasibility Study, we have met with neighbors on and around House Street, as well as Plainfield Township officials, EGLE staff, and the Community Advisory Group. During these meetings, we shared information about an option to preserve our heavily wooded property and enhance it with additional trees and recreational trails. This nature preserve option would also include scientifically proven methods to accomplish environmental remediation in accordance with the Consent Decree.
To learn more about the Feasibility Study for our House Street property, including the nature preserve option outlined above, please review these slides.
We will be submitting the Feasibility Study to EGLE on February 19, 2021. Between now and then, we will be evaluating the feedback already received and any additional feedback that we receive in the next couple of weeks.
We will continue keeping the community informed through regular updates on this blog, www.WeAreWolverine.com, and through information posted at kiosks and in other locations accessible to the public. As always, residents with questions or feedback are encouraged to contact Wolverine Worldwide directly at HouseStreet@wwwinc.com or (616) 866-5627.
