Abstract:  THE 4-ACRE CEMETERY DUMP SITE IS A FORMER SAND AND GRAVEL PIT IN ROSE TOWNSHIP, OAKLAND COUNTY, MICHIGAN. DURING THE LATE 1960S OR EARLY 1970S, APPROXIMATELY 300 TO 600 DRUMS, CONTAINING PAINT SLUDGES, SOLVENTS, PCBS, AND OILS, WERE ILLEGALLY DUMPED AND BURIED ONSITE. A 1985 RECORD OF DECISION (ROD) ADDRESSED THE SOIL CLEANUP WHICH INCLUDED EXCAVATION AND OFFSITE DISPOSAL OF VISUALLY-CONTAMINATED SOIL AND DRUM FRAGMENTS. SOIL WHICH WAS NOT VISUALLY CONTAMINATED WAS SAMPLED AND BACKFILLED WITH CLEAN SOIL INTO THE EXCAVATED AREAS. SUBSEQUENT SOIL AND GROUND WATER SAMPLING INDICATED THAT ZINC CONTAMINANTS IN THE GROUND WATER EXCEED THE FEDERAL SECONDARY MCL, A NONENFORCEABLE STANDARD BASED ON TASTE AND ODOR, NOT PROTECTION OF HEALTH. ZINC CONTAMINATION, HOWEVER, IS MOST LIKELY A RESULT OF MONITORING WELL CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS. NO OTHER CONTAMINANTS EXCEED FEDERAL OR STATE ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS.

THE SELECTED REMEDIAL ACTION FOR THIS SITE IS NO FURTHER ACTION BECAUSE PREVIOUS REMEDIAL ACTIVITIES APPEAR TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE PROTECTION TO HUMAN HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT. GROUND WATER WILL BE MONITORED ANNUALLY, AND A 5-YEAR REVIEW WILL BE PERFORMED TO ENSURE THAT THE SITE CONTINUES TO POSE NO THREAT TO HUMAN HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT. THERE ARE NO COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS NO ACTION REMEDY.
 
Remedy:  THE SELECTED REMEDY IS PROTECTIVE OF HUMAN HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT AND ATTAINS FEDERAL AND STATE REQUIREMENTS THAT ARE APPLICABLE OR RELEVANT AND APPROPRIATE TO THIS SITE. THE STATUTORY PREFERENCES FOR COST-EFFECTIVENESS, PERMANENT SOLUTIONS AND ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES WHILE APPLICABLE, DO NOT NEED TO BE DEVELOPED FOR THE "NO FURTHER ACTION REMEDY." THIS REMEDY WILL NOT RESULT IN HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES REMAINING ON-SITE ABOVE HEALTH-BASED LEVELS. HOWEVER, AS DEEMED PRUDENT BY THE MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES AND BY THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY, THE 5-YEAR REVIEW WILL APPLY TO THIS ACTION.
