What Are the Risks at the Site?
Groundwater beneath the Site is contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including trichloroethene (TCE), from leaking underground storage tanks and piping. VOC contamination was historically present in soil but has been remediated to below regulatory criteria. Institutional controls are in place to ensure that no one can ingest or come in direct contact with contaminated groundwater.
A vapor intrusion investigation conducted at the on-Site building concluded that VOCs in groundwater are not impacting indoor air quality through vapor intrusion (a process whereby vapors from contaminated groundwater move upwards through the soil and enter the indoor air of nearby buildings). EPA is overseeing a vapor intrusion investigation in the nearby residential neighborhood over the TCE plume and overseeing the mitigation of more than 20 residences and school buildings affected by vapor intrusion.
The Site contamination is not impacting municipal drinking water supplies.
The main contaminant of concern at the Site is trichloroethene (TCE). More information about TCE can be found at this website: http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxfaqs/tf.asp?id=172&tid=30
EPA uses performance measures to track environmental results at Superfund sites. If you have any questions or concerns about the measures at this site, please contact the site team members listed under Site Contacts.

|Status at this
|What does this mean?|
|Human Exposure Under Control||No||Yes means assessments indicate that across the entire site:
No means an unsafe level of contamination has been detected at the site and a reasonable expectation exists that people could be exposed.Insufficient data means that, due to uncertainty regarding exposures, one cannot draw conclusions as to whether human exposures are controlled, typically because:
|Groundwater Migration Under Control||Yes||
Yes means EPA reviewed all information on known and reasonably expected groundwater contamination. EPA concluded the migration of contaminated groundwater is stabilized and there is no unacceptable discharge to surface water. EPA will conduct monitoring to confirm that affected groundwater remains in the original area of contamination.
No means EPA has reviewed all information on known and reasonably expected groundwater contamination, and the migration of contaminated groundwater is not stabilized.
Insufficient data means that due to uncertainty regarding contaminated groundwater migration, EPA cannot draw conclusions as to whether the migration of contaminated groundwater is stabilized.
Yes means the physical construction of the cleanup is complete for the entire site.
No means either physical construction is not complete or actions are still needed to address contamination.
|Sitewide Ready for Anticipated Use||No||Yes means:
No means that one or more of these three criteria have not been met. However, a site listed as no may still have redevelopment occurring on portions of the site and may be eligible for additional redevelopment.
