Environmental Progress

An initial investigation of the site has helped understand past landfilling practices and waste materials. Minimal groundwater impacts were identified. Additional groundwater investigations have been conducted with the primary objective of delineating off-site impacts to groundwater. Semi-annual groundwater monitoring has been conducted and is ongoing in order to monitor plume stability and/or contaminant concentration trends. An Ecological Risk Assessment is in progress to allow for evaluation of possible future site use. It is anticipated that use of the property will be restricted to non-residential and use of groundwater will be prohibited. Work is being performed under the RCRA Corrective Action program under the oversight of the U.S. EPA.
