Frankfort, Kentucky (April 23, 2019)—The state contractor blamed for thousands of gallons of construction waste ending up in a Bullitt County creek has 26 contracts for taxpayer-funded jobs in Kentucky. A search of the commonwealth's transparency website show Bluegrass Contracting agreements total more than $6 million. The dumping came to light earlier this month when one of Bluegrass Contracting's tankers got stuck in the mud during a dump.
The Department for Environmental Protection will host a public information meeting to provide updates on the scope, progress and future steps of the remediation project in Bullitt County, Kentucky, where a concrete slurry spill occurred along Blue Lick Creek. Jon Maybriar, the director of the division of waste management, and Peter Goodmann, the director of the division of dater, will be in attendance and will be available to answer questions.
