Old steel mill property yields tons of scrap metal in Utah County

A transformation expected to take up to 20 years to complete is under way at the former Geneva Steel site.
For 60 years, a steel mill operated on the 1,680 acre property, supported by more than 100 miles of railroad track and 100-plus buildings. Today, the land is being cleaned up and prepared for redevelopment.

The developer, Anderson Geneva, envisions a massive mixed-use project with residential, commercial and industrial uses.

So far, more than 140,000 cubic yards of concrete have been removed from the site as part of the cleanup.
Stewart Park, Anderson Geneva project manager said those areas will be remediated for industrial use. A map of the development shows 5.5 million square feet of planned industrial land.

The 45,000 tons of scrap metal and 100 tons of copper extracted have been recycled, used and sold off for other purposes, Park said. Deseret News
