EPA Region 3 (Mid-Atlantic)
EPA ID# WVD981038300
2nd Congressional District
Last Update: May 2000
Current Site Status
The site was secured with the decontamination and dismantling of the Shaffer building. Work is underway on the design of the final cap for the site. An Interagency Agreement with Army Corps of Engineers is in place for the design and construction of a cap over the remaining area of sub surface PCB contamination. Close on the heels of this action, is a West Virginia Bureau of Mines reclamation project on the adjacent Minden Mine # 3. Coordination of the two design and construction activities has been assigned to the Corps of Engineers to insure that there is no impact on the Site cap from future reclamation activities.
The final phase of this EPA Removal Action is scheduled for the Spring 2000 with the completion of a cap and storm water controls. The only post-removal site control action that EPA anticipates is the periodic sampling of monitoring wells at the site by the state.
Site DescriptionThe Site was an electrical equipment repair facility that had scrapped unrepairable electrical equipment indescrimanently dumping polychlorinated biphenyl PCB contaminated oil into the soil on the site. The site is located along Arbuckle Creek in a valley which drains to the Northeast into the New River Gorge National River.
