The Quapaw Tribe Environmental Office will begin hauling chat at the Catholic 40 site beginning December 17, 2013 and continue until the Christmas holiday week of December 23, 2013. Cleanup activities will resume after the Christmas and New Year's holidays. General hours of operation will be from 7 am to 7 pm, Monday through Saturday.
The Catholic 40 site is a culturally and historically significant site to the Quapaw Tribe as it contains evidence of important events in the history of the Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma. Due to the sensitive historic and cultural nature of the Catholic 40 site, the tribe feels it is best suited to protect cultural and historical features at the site during remediation and mitigate the potential for accidental damage or removal of any structures or associated items which may help the Quapaw Tribe come to a better understanding of their history.
The Quapaw Tribe Environmental offices asks that citizens of the community be cognizant of additional trucks on the road due to excavation and hauling of chat from the Catholic 40 site to the repository.
