Status Update JUNE 1st 2019

“In speaking with the contractor working the site; other than seeking hot spots and getting the last bit of hot ash excavated, they cannot locate any source of fire, combustion, or potential source of re-ignition. This of course will need to be confirmed, but things appear to be going well” – Tom Judson BVPOA-COO

May 27, 2019 – Report of on-site work the Bella Vista POA has completed for Phase 1: 

Excavation activities were performed

Hot spots are being identified and addresses in the other areas, guided by thermal measurements

An exploratory trench was dug near the southern boundary of the Site to identify background temperature readings

The excavated materials had no evidence of burning or ash, and no smoke was observed

Air Curtain Technology will be used 24/7 to address the accumulation of large tree trunks and stumps

The Air Curtain Technology was re-loaded with material this morning, which caused a reduction in temperature and an increase in smoke emissions for a limited amount of time until temperatures increased to operating temperatures

Water discharge occurred from the site as a result of the rainfall and fire-fighting water

Overnight crews continued to manage site security and addressed the potential for flare-ups

Aeration system was operated to aerate the water prior to discharge through the weir

Water samples are collected daily from the discharge point of the weir

Air monitoring was performed before, during, and after the event consistent with the Air Monitoring, Noise Monitoring, and Hazard Communication Plan

The air quality measurements from yesterday, May 26th, show no exceedances of action levels
