Abstract:  This Record of Decision (ROD) presents the selected remedial action for soils and groundwater for the Vienna PCE Superfund Site. The Vienna PCE Superfund Site is located in Wood County, West Virginia. The Vienna PCE site consists of two historical contamination source areas associated with dry cleaning operations and the resulting groundwater plume. The city o Parkersburg, the County seat, is immediately south of Vienna. Vienna, a residential, industrial and commercial community is approximately three square miles in area and has a population of about 11,000 people. The city is located on the eastern bank of the Ohio River, which flows southward in the vicinity of the site. EPA is the lead agency and the Wes Virginia Department of Environmental Protection is the support agency for the site. Between 1998 and 2002, EPA has identified and investigated several Potentially Responsible Parties (PRPs). To date, none of the PRPs have sufficient resources to perform, pay for and implement the remedy. As such, cleanup monies are anticipated to come from the Superfund trust fund.
Remedy:  This ROD sets forth the selected remedy for the site, which includes groundwater and soil. This action will be the final action for this site. The selected remedy for the site is divided into three components: groundwater, soils and institutional controls. The selected remedy for the groundwater is an in Situ Air Sparging with Soil Vapor Extraction system, which will reduce the concentrations of contaminants of concerns to risk based drinking water levels. The selected remedy for soils is the reduction of PCE concentrations in the soil in the vicinity of the Vienna Cleaners property to the point where these soils no longer contribute contamination to the groundwater at levels above the Maximum Contaminant Level of 5 parts per billion. This will be accomplished through an ongoing EPA Removal Action, utilizing the Unterdruck Verdamfer Brunner system. To ensure that there is no human consumption or adverse exposure to groundwater prior to the successful completion of the soils and groundwater components of this remedial action, institutional controls will be implemented to ensure that no one sues the groundwater for potable or hygienic uses such as drinking, bathing, or cooking at the site until clean-up levels are achieved. The institutional controls will be achieved through zoning restrictions, county ordinances or local ordinances, prohibiting the placement of wells which would provide water for such uses in the vicinity of the site.
