This facility is one of EPA Region III’s high priority RCRA corrective action sites. Edgewater Steel Co. clean closed an EAF dust waste pile in 1991 and closed in place a construction/demolition waste landfill in 1995. The facility shut down operations in 2001. In October, 2001 an environmental inspection was done. An EI report was prepared in March 2002. PADEP determined that with the removal of waste from the manufacturing buildings, the EI’s would be under control (Sept. 2003). The buildings were demolished in 2005, but some waste (dust) was apparently disposed on site during demolition activities. Subsequent sampling in 2006 did not locate any dust or materials that exhibited a hazardous waste characteristic. Additionally as part of a PA Act 2 site characterization, limited TCE impacts to groundwater were found. An Act 2 cleanup plan and risk assessment is currently under DEP review. The site is slated for light industrial, commercial and residential development.
RCRA Corrective Action activities at this facility are being conducted under the direction of EPA Region 3 with assistance from the State.
There are no institutional controls at this time.
