In 2014, the Superfund Program implemented a new information system, the Superfund Enterprise Management System (SEMS). Efforts to migrate data to SEMS and to enhance data quality control are progressing. The Program will continue to rely on the final CERCLIS data set (dated November 12, 2013, which reflects official end of Fiscal Year 2013 Program progress) for public reporting until a complete and accurate SEMS data set is available. The current estimate for refreshing the content on this page is September 30, 2014.

The National Priorities List (NPL) is the list of the most hazardous sites across the U.S. and its territories.

This site is on the NPL and is known as a Final NPL site (see glossary).


Potentially Responsible Parties (PRPs) were involved in the cleanup effort (see glossary).

Superfund law requires that EPA give communities information about site progress and plans so that they can be actively involved in site cleanup decisions. Learn more about community involvement at this site >>

 
 
 
  Cleanup Impact Summary  
 
At each site, EPA assesses the risk to humans and the environment and determines the best approach to address the risk. During initial site studies and cleanup, EPA determines if current human exposures to contaminants are under control and takes actions to control any possible human exposures until cleanup has been completed. Once complete, cleanup provides long-term human health and environmental protection at the site.

Current human exposures at this site are under control Current human exposures at this site are under control

see glossary definition for "Human Exposure Environmental Indicator Measure." >>

At each site with known ground water contamination, EPA documents whether ground water contamination is below protective risk-based levels or, if not, whether the migration of contaminated ground water is stabilized.


Contaminated ground water migration is under control Contaminated ground water migration is under control

see glossary definition for "Contaminated Ground Water Migration Environmental Indicator Measure." >>
 
 
 
  Contamination  
 
 

Contaminants (i.e., hazardous substances, pollutants or contaminants) can be found in several different types of materials on the site including soil and other solid-based media and water or another liquid-based medium (see glossary).

The contaminants listed via the links below are considered the contaminants of concern (see glossary) to be addressed by cleanup actions at the site.

Contaminated Media:  Groundwater, Sediment, Soil
EPA classifies contaminants found into groups or types (listed below). To view all contaminants of concern at the site click on the "view contaminants of concern at this site" link.
Types of Contaminants:  Base Neutral Acids, Inorganics, Metals, PAH, PCBs, Persistant Organic Pollutants, Pesticides, VOC

  Next Activities

Restoring contaminated sites is a complex process influenced by technical, scientific, natural events and budgetary constraints. These circumstances may affect cleanup schedules.

The Superfund program works hard to provide accurate estimates of upcoming activities at our sites. Changes to these schedules will be reflected on this site.

Site Contacts (EPA Cleanup Managers, etc.)

Operable Unit (OU) OU Description Next Activity Start Date Planned Start Planned Complete

NOTE: This site has been included in a demonstration for alternative presentation and may look different than other Superfund pages you have visited. As part of this demonstration only the next major milestone is displayed even though multiple activities can occur simultaneously. Updates occur on a weekly basis.

 
 
 
 
  Community Involvement

The goals of the Superfund community involvement (CI) program are to: 1) keep communities affected by sites informed throughout the cleanup process, 2) provide opportunities for communities to comment and offer their input about site cleanup plans, and 3) facilitate the resolution of community issues tied to a site. EPA accomplishes these goals by providing communities different tools and resources to support their site involvement. These resources include independent technical assistance so community members can understand the technical aspects of a site, a public forum for community members to present and discuss their needs and concerns related to the Superfund decision making process, and a job training program to encourage employment of local workers. These are just some of the CI program's resources; to learn more, go to http://www.epa.gov/superfund/community/.

  Land Reuse

EPA places a high priority on land revitalization as an integral part of its Superfund response program mission, so EPA tries to select cleanup options that encourage and support future use of a site. Sites made ready for use are deemed "Site-wide Ready for Anticipated Use" (see glossary), which means, in part, that all cleanup goals have been achieved for both current and reasonably anticipated future land use.

This site currently does not meet the criteria for Site-wide Ready for Anticipated Use, however parts of the site may be suitable for reuse.

 
  Post-Construction
Post-Construction (see glossary) is the stage following completion of the remedy construction. It includes, among other things, activities such as operating the remedy to address the contamination (e.g., ground water pump and treat); implementing, monitoring, and enforcing institutional controls; and a review of the implemented remedies at least every five years to ensure they continue to protect human health and the environment.
Institutional controls (see glossary) such as administrative or legal restrictions may also be components of remedies at a site that remain in place post-construction completion.  view a list of institutional controls at this site >>
Sites or portions of sites may be deleted (see glossary) from the National Priorities List when all cleanup goals have been achieved. This site has not been deleted from the National Priorities List
  Five Year Review Information
Protective in the Short term

At some sites, one of the activities performed during post-construction completion is a five-year review (see glossary), which occurs at least every five years to ensure that the site remains protective of human health and the environment.

Last five-year review at this site:  09/25/2012 view the last five-year review at this site >>
