D.C. United Stadium Site Is Contaminated, Needs Major Detox

The District has yet to come to an agreement with developer Akridge on the 89,251-square-foot site planned for the D.C. United Stadium. Regardless, the District filed an application on Friday to clean eight parcels of the site from metals, petroleum compounds, and volatile organic compounds. According to Washington Business Journal, the development agreement between D.C. United and Washington, D.C. requires a voluntary clean up plan. If the soil is contaminated by petroleum, it can be cleaned by excavation of the soil. The deadline to clean up the site is March 1, 2016. If the District and Akridge do not come to an agreement, the site will be seized through eminent domain.
