Environmental Progress

Historic testing found concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) above regulatory criteria. To investigate historic exceedances and other potential releases, environmental investigations at the plant began in the spring of 2011, and were substantially complete in December 2014.

Based on the data collected, there are concentrations of VOCs (including 1,4-dioxane), SVOCs, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and metals at Plant 3 above applicable criteria.

A draft Corrective Measures Study (SMS) was submitted to MDEQ in June 2014; an updated CMS will be  submitted to the MDEQ after completion of additional field-scale pilot testing in 2015. The CMS report will be updated to include the results of post-June 2014 investigations and data evaluation activity and will summarize those areas under consideration for corrective measures, provide an explanation of options with associated costs, and identify the proposed corrective measures for applicable areas within Plant 6.

Implementation of the corrective measures will begin after MDEQ approves the CMS. Interim measures, such as targeted excavations or other design-related studies, may be completed prior to MDEQ’s approval of the CMS. Groundwater monitoring will continue to allow for evaluation of concentrations trends.
