Abstract:  THE SITE, WHICH IS APPROXIMATELY ONE-QUARTER ACRE IN SIZE, WAS USED ORIGINALLY FOR STORAGE OF HEATING OIL AND GASOLINE. THE SITE WAS PURCHASED IN 1972 BY A WASTE DISPOSAL FIRM THAT USED THE UNDERGROUND TANKS TO STORE A VARIETY OF LIQUID AND HAZARDOUS WASTES. EPA ANALYSIS OF THE TANK CONTENTS IDENTIFIED A WIDE VARIETY OF ORGANIC AND INORGANIC CHEMICALS, INCLUDING BENZENE, METHYLENE CHLORIDE, TOLUENE, ARSENIC, CHROMIUM, AND NICKEL.


THE COST-EFFECTIVE INITIAL REMEDIAL MEASURES (IRM) SELECTED FOR THIS SITE INCLUDE CLEANING AND REMOVAL OF UNDERGROUND WASTE STORAGE TANKS AND EXCAVATING AND OFF-SITE DISPOSAL VISIBLY CONTAMINATED SOIL. ADDITIONAL SOIL ANALYSES WILL BE PERFORMED TO DETERMINE IF FURTHER SITE ACTION IS NECESSARY. THE ESTIMATED COST FOR THIS IRM IS APPROXIMATELY $114,500.
 
Remedy:  THIS IRM WILL INCLUDE THE CLEANING AND REMOVAL OF UNDERGROUND WASTE STORAGE TANKS AT THE BLAINE STREET SITE. VISIBLY CONTAMINATED SOIL WILL BE EXCAVATED FOR OFFSITE DISPOSAL, AND SOIL SAMPLES WILL BE TAKEN FOR LABORATORY ANALYSIS. A SUPPLEMENTAL ROD WILL BE PREPARED AFTER THE RESULTS OF THE SOIL SAMPLES HAVE BEEN EVALUATED. THE SUPPLEMENTAL ROD WILL INCLUDE A RECOMMENDATION FOR FURTHER SITE ACTION, OR FOR NO ACTION.
