This facility is one of EPA Region III's high priority RCRA corrective action sites and EPA has determined that both the Human Exposure and Groundwater Environmental Indicators have been met.
On January 8, 2001, EPA determined with Pennsylvania's help, that both the Human Exposures and Groundwater Environmental Indicators have been met. Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection re-issued a RCRA post-closure permit for this Facility on December 22, 2003. EPA believes that this post closure permit addresses the corrective action issues and, therefore, EPA is not contemplating additional work at this time.
RCRA Corrective Action activities at this facility are “State-Lead” which means on-going monitoring requirements are being directed by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) through the RCRA permitting program. GROWS has a post closure permit issued by PADEP that covers the groundwater monitoring requirements for the areas subject to corrective action.
No institutional controls are currently in place.
