NOTES:

1. General

It should be noted that the actual selection of a cleanup technology will be dependent on community input, cleanup goals, site conditions and situations, the level and extent of contamination, the cost of equipment, materials and labor, and the future use of the site.

The approach and procedures presented in this document are intended solely for informational purposes. They are not intended, nor can they be relied upon to create any rights enforceable by any party in litigation with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EPA officials may decide to follow the approach and procedures provided in this document, or to act at variance with the approach and procedures, based on an analysis of site circumstances. The agency also reserves the right to change this fact sheet at any time without public notice.

3. Cost Category

A. Solidification (on-site) cost (including excavation and mixing) for 100 foot long by 100 foot wide by 15 foot deep area using cement lime is approximately $150,000 or $470 per ton.

B. On-site land disposal cost (including excavation, transportation and back filling of the excavated area) for an area 100 foot by 100 foot is approximately $70,000 to $100,000.

C. Off-site Disposal Cost:

D. Cost for remediation using these technologies varies according to the volume of the contaminated soil, the number of contaminants and the concentration of contaminants present in the treatment media. Without knowing the site details no cost could be provided for this document.

E. Cost of incineration of bulk solid by rotary kiln is approximately $800 to $2,000 per ton.

F. Soil with low pH can be treated with hydrated lime. Approximate cost of treatment is $300 per acre including the cost of lime, equipment and manpower.

G. Cost of off-site disposal (no treatment) to a landfill is approximately $100 to $200 per ton.
