Decades of blight and uncertainty are coming to an end as the city of Des Moines agrees to take ownership of the Des Moines TCE Superfund Site, known as the Dico site locally. This agreement is a major milestone that continues protection for the city’s water supply and moves the site one step closer to productive reuse for the citizens of Des Moines.
