The state Controlling Board has released nearly $200,000 for cleanup activities at the former Davidson Metals property in Youngstown.

The $198,986 in Clean Ohio funding will pay for monitoring wells, soil tests, an asbestos survey and other work as part of the second phase of an environmental assessment of the 8.18-acre site at 1630 Wilson Ave.

The property, which includes a half-dozen buildings, housed industrial operations for more than 60 years, including Harr Iron Co., Bates Expanded Steel Corp., Warren Manufacturing and National Strapping Corp., according to documents.

Davidson Metals operated at the site from 1985 to 2006, followed by a waste-oil recycling business until 2009.

The funds released by the Controlling Board on Monday were requested by city officials to continue environmental assessments of the property, with hopes of preparing it for future industrial uses.
