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.

An environmental covenant that describes what additional sampling and cleanup work is needed on the contaminated material remaining at OU4 has been placed upon the property and been recorded with the Tooele County recorder’s office.

The town of Stockton Ordinance #2000-4 requires permit applications for all construction work that requires excavation below 18 inches, to ensure excavated material is tested and handled according to appropriate state and federal regulations.
