Environmental Remediation of Valmont Butte Property

The city of Boulder, Colorado and Honeywell International reached an agreement to clean up hazardous materials on the Valmont Butte property. The 102-acre site was once used for industrial milling and debris disposal. Honeywell, the successor to Allied Chemicals, Inc., operated the property from 1939 to 1976. The terms of the agreement call for Boulder and Honeywell to be equally responsible for the cost of the cleanup, the amount of which will be determined through the courts. Honeywell also agreed to pay the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency $350,000.
