- EPA has determined that no further corrective action or controls are necessary at this time for this Facility. EPA's decision was based on a site visit and a review of EPA and Virginia files regarding the environmental history of the Facility as presented in the Final Environmental Indicator Inspection Report submitted on August 11, 2008. Based on this review, EPA has concluded that there are no current or unaddressed releases of hazardous waste or hazardous constituents from the Facility
- A Statement of Basis (SOB) seeking public comment on EPA's decision was noticed on May 25, 2010. The EPA issued its Final Decision regarding the Facility on June 29, 2010 stating that Corrective Action was Complete without Controls.
- Paramont is a polymer reaction injection molding manufacturing facility that makes rubber and plastic molded products. Typically, Paramont manufactures truck outer body components such as engine hoods, bumpers, and smaller components. The facility is currently a large quantity generator as of March 2006.
- The Facility building is over 300,000 ft2 in size and was constructed by Westinghouse in a manufacturing and residential area. Westinghouse, Electric Materials Division manufactured copper wire at the Facility until 1995/1996. The Facility was vacant from 1996 until 1999.
- The Facility uses public water for its potable water supply and the Publically Owned Treatment Works (POTW) for wastewater. A 300,000-gallon water supply tank for fire protection is located at the Facility and owned by Washington County.
- EPA and VDEQ found no evidence of any spills or releases after Paramont purchased the Facility. The only hazardous waste releases occurred prior to Paramont purchasing the property from Westinghouse. A three stage environmental assessment and remediation activities were performed at the site in 1996 by Westinghouse to remediate the releases. The Facility was cleaned up, tanks removed and the lagoon clean closed under the jurisdiction of VDEQ. In 1999, a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment report documented that no sampling results detected any hazardous materials in hazardous concentrations present at the site.
