Colonial Pipeline continues to make progress on site assessment and remediation efforts at the Sugarlimb Trap Facility.
Assessment activities along the north and south sides of Sugarlimb Road continue. Nearby residents might notice an increase in activity and different equipment at the site; however, the site remains stable, and the estimated volume of product has not increased.
No product has been observed in surface water receptors, and we continue to visually inspect nearby Hubbard Branch and the Tennessee River daily.
Some of Colonial’s work at the site involves efforts to minimize erosion, including seeding grass, installing fences, and laying gravel. Colonial recently donated excess gravel from the site to the City of Loudon Police Department to help improve access to the county’s training facility that benefits not only the Loudon Police Department, but other surrounding agencies that use their facility.
Colonial remains committed to protecting human health and the environment and appreciates the community’s support as we work to safely remediate this area.
