The three areas of concern include a former dump area in the eastern portion of the site, a seasonally wet depression area in the southwestern portion of the site and an ash area in the southwest portion of the site. In the eastern area of the site, surficial soils impacted by metals will be excavated and disposed of off-site and/or placed under paved areas/impervious surfaces. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the seasonally wet depression area will be excavated and disposed of off-site. A native soil cap will be placed over the ash area at the southwestern section of the site to prevent any future dermal contact. Additional groundwater investigation will be completed to confirm that groundwater at the site has not been impacted.
