Project Description:
The Interim Remedial Measure (IRM) calls for the excavation and off-site treatment/disposal of visibly impacted soils, including approximately 1,300 cubic yards of material contaminated with coal tar, and approximately 990 cubic yards of purifier bed waste.
The objective of the IRM is to remove all reasonably accessible coal tar and purifier waste to the maximum extent possible. This is not intended to be the final remedy for the site. The final remedy is intended to include the construction of an asphalt cap (parking lot) across the entire site to prevent direct exposures to residual contamination in the subsurface soils. The planned IRM activities are described in the Interim Remedial Measure Work Plan which is now available for public review.
