Announcements and Key Topics

Cleanup of the Airco Superfund Site is largely complete. The landfill has been capped along with the construction of a flood protection dike as required by the 1988 Record of Decision (ROD). The main remedy component to be completed is the attainment of cleanup standards for the groundwater.

EPA is currently monitoring changes in groundwater quality. Groundwater samples are collected for analysis by the current owner of the landfill (The Linde Group). Since the closure of the landfill, groundwater contamiant levels have decresed significantly.

Another factor being considred by EPA is the affect the 2018 ROD for the BF Goodrich (BFG) Superfund Site will have on the Airco Site. As part of the remedy selected for the BFG Site, a subsurface barrier wall will be constructed around the perimeter of the BFG Site, and will also encompass the Airco Site, further limiting groundwater migration.
