This property, the site of the former Pulaski Incinerator Facility, has long been a concern to the state Department of the Environment. In the 1990s, when the incinerator was still operating, numerous citations were issued for failure to comply with air emissions standards and to contain surface water runoff from the ash disposal area. Incinerator ash was subsequently spread across the 19-acre site, and other environmental problems dogged the property for years. In January 2007, the New Pulaski Company entered the state’s Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP), which is meant to encourage the cleanup of properties contaminated with hazardous substances. The state is now in the process of issuing a certificate of completion to the company, which means the program has been completed and, at least in the eyes of the Department of the Environment, the remediation is complete. According to City Council spokesperson Lester Davis, the company has proposed a variety of development options for the site, including retail and warehouse spaces.
