Activity and Use Limitations

At this site, activity and use limitations that EPA calls institutional controls are in place. Institutional controls play an important role in site remedies because they reduce exposure to contamination by limiting land or resource use. They also guide human behavior. For instance, zoning restrictions prevent land uses – such as residential uses – that are not consistent with the level of cleanup. For more background, see Institutional Controls.

The Columbia Aquifer beneath the site has high concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), primarly TCE.Contaminant descriptions and associated risk factors are available at the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry web site at: www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxfaqs/index.asp.
