Environmental Progress

Environmental investigation and remediation activities are under way at the site to address light non-aqueous phase liquid (LNAPL), groundwater, historic discharges, and other environmental issues. Numerous historical investigations have been undertaken, and the primary contaminants of concern include LNAPL, chlorinated solvents, lead and manganese. The U.S. EPA approved a Final Decision on a cleanup approach in 2010 for the southern portion of the site that includes restrictions on groundwater use, extraction of the LNAPL, and engineered covers or excavation of soils that are impacted with lead. Activities to prevent discharge of LNAPL through storm sewer outfalls continues. Work is being completed under the RCRA Corrective Action program under EPA oversight.
