Five Year Review
On May 21, 2019 the EPA completed the sixth Five Year Review for the site.
Institutional controls are required for this site.
This site requires ICs because a decision document, such as a Record of Decision, has documented some level of contamination and/or remedy component at the site that would restrict use of the site. These ICs are required to help ensure the site is used in an appropriate way and that activities at the site do not damage the cleanup components. These ICs will remain in place for as long as the contamination and/or cleanup components stay on site. In order to determine the current status of ICs for this site, the site contacts should be consulted.
