Batesville, IN—May Mike Bettice was pleased to announce on Monday that the City received the no final action order from IDEM in regards to the Feller service Station property. The monitoring sites will be removed this week according to Mayor Betice and this completes the project. The monitoring process began in 2017 to make sure all efforts to neutralize remaining benzene, oil and gas were removed from the grouds.
Mayor Bettice stated he has enlisted the help of the Batesville Economic Development group to come up with possible ideas for the future of the site.
Demolition crews removed the former Fellers Service Station in downtown Batesville in August of 2018. Mayor Mike Bettice told WRBI News in 2017 the property could have been sold prior to the demolition, but the city wanted to be sure the site clean up was properly completed.
