Abstract:  Please note that the text in this document summarizes the Record of Decision for the purposes of facilitating searching and retrieving key text on the ROD. It is not the officially approved abstract drafted by the EPA Regional offices. Once EPA Headquarters receives the official abstract, this text will be replaced.

The Saunders Supply Company site is located in the village of Chuckatuck, a rural area of Suffolk, Virginia. The site is a former wood treating facility that ceased operating in June 1991. The Saunders Supply Company facility is located in a mixed residential and commercial area. There is a nursery and residence located immediately north of the facility. A gasoline station and a residential subdivision are located south of the facility. Commercial establishments and residences are located east of the facility, and a wooded area is west of the facility, beyond which agricultural activity exists.

Based on new information obtained during the design of the remedy, the Record of Decision (ROD) is being amended to change the method for treatment of contaminated soil and sediments from on-site low temperature thermal desorption and on-site dechlorination, respectively, to off-site incineration because off-site incineration, would have fewer adverse impacts while still being comparable in cost to on-site treatment.
Remedy:  This amendment revises the previously selected remedy by changing the methodology for treatment of contaminated soil and sediment from on-site low temperature thermal desorption and on-site dechlorination, respectively, to off-site incineration.

The amended remedy includes the following major components: excavation and off-site incineration of the sediments from the wastewater pond and the former earthen separation pond; excavation and off-site incineration of the site soils and sediments from the storm sewer; treatment of the groundwater during the deterring process prior to excavating the soil that collected in the groundwater collection trenches; removal of the top one inch of the stained areas of the concrete pad, solidification treatment and off-site disposal of the removed material; removal and on-site disposal of the concrete pad in the area requiring soil excavation; cleaning and sliplining of the storm sewer; groundwater monitoring; and institutional controls.
