Abstract:  THE ADRIAN MUNICIPAL WELL FIELD SITE IS IN ADRIAN, NOBLES COUNTY, MINNESOTA, A CITY WHICH RELIES SOLELY ON GROUND WATER FOR ITS MUNICIPAL WATER SUPPLY. IN 1983 THE STATE DETECTED VOC CONTAMINATION IN TWO OF THE SIX WELLS AT THE SITE, AND BY 1985 THE CITY HAD REPLACED THE VOC-CONTAMINATED WELLS WITH TWO NEW WELLS. SUBSEQUENT GROUND WATER SAMPLING INDICATED THAT PETROLEUM RELEASES FROM UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST) ARE SOURCES FOR SOIL AND GROUND WATER CONTAMINATION. ALTHOUGH GROUND WATER CONTAMINANT CONCENTRATIONS EXCEED FEDERAL AND STATE DRINKING WATER AND SURFACE WATER STANDARDS, NO FURTHER ACTION WILL BE TAKEN BY THE SUPERFUND PROGRAM BECAUSE THE PROGRAM DOES NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO ADDRESS CLEAN UP OF PETROLEUM RELEASES. EPA WILL, HOWEVER, FORMALLY TRANSFER THE SITE TO ITS UST PROGRAM IN OCTOBER 1989 FOR FURTHER ACTION. THERE ARE NO COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS REMEDIAL ACTION.
 
Remedy:  NO ACTION. THE RESULTS OF THE REMEDIAL INVESTIGATION (RI) SHOW THAT CONTAMINANTS OF CONCERN AT THE SITE ARE EXCLUDED FROM REMEDIAL ACTION UNDER MERLA AND CERCLA SECTION 101. SPECIFICALLY, THE SUPERFUND PROGRAM DOES NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO ADDRESS CLEANUP OF PETROLEUM RELEASES FROM UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST). THE SELECTED REMEDY IS THAT "NO FURTHER ACTION" BE TAKEN BY THE MINNESOTA POLLUTION CONTROL AGENCY (MPCA) SITE RESPONSE SECTION AND THE US EPA OFFICE OF SUPERFUND AT THE SITE AND THAT THE SITE BE TRANSFERRED TO THE US EPA UST PROGRAM AND THE HAZARDOUS WASTE DIVISION (TANKS AND SPILLS SECTION) AT THE MPCA, WHICH IS ACTING UNDER A COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT WITH THE US EPA.
