- On July 13, 2009 the Chemical Carrier Corp of Virginia Corporation (ABC) entered into a Facility Lead Corrective Action Agreement (FLA) with Region 3 of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its Roxbury, Virginia Maintenance Terminal Facility (EPA ID No. VAD000799379). EPA approved ABC's Site Characterization Work Plan (SCWP) to investigate the site in November 2010. The facility also submitted a Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP), Sampling and Analysis Plan (SAP), Site Health and Safety Plan (HASP) and Community Relations Plan (CRP). The purpose of the site characterization is to determine the nature and extent of potential impacts to environmental media beneath the site including soil and groundwater. ABC began its site characterization under the agreement in January 2011. Follow-up investigations were conducted in August/September of 2011. The Corrective Measures Study (CMS) was submitted to EPA for review on October 23, 2012. The CMS was approved by EPA on February 12, 2013.
- The ABC Roxbury Maintenance Terminal is located at 1901 Roxbury Road in Charles City County, Virginia. The 18-acre facility was developed in the late 1971 to provide storage, fueling and maintenance support to ABC's bulk hauling business. Three on-site buildings are currently used to carry out routine maintenance on trucks and trailers, which are stored on the property between jobs. Diesel fuel is dispensed to company vehicles from an above-ground storage tank located on the grounds.
- ABC submitted a Community Action Plan to the US EPA in November 2010. The initiation of site investigation activities was announced to the community via a public notice published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper December 3-9, 2010. An information repository has been established at ABC's Administrative Offices located at 1804 Barnetts Road. Please contact Mr. Warren Groseclose at (804) 966-5459 (E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule an appointment to review information or obtain a fact sheet.
- To date, the site characterization investigations have detected organic chemicals commonly associated with degreasers and solvents. Contaminants of concern include trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, 1,1-dichloroethane, trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, cis-1,2-dichloroethylene and vinyl chloride, which were detected along with related compounds in groundwater samples collected from monitoring wells installed on the site. The contaminants of concern exceed risk-based screening levels published by the US EPA Region 3. However, there is no indication that site workers or other human populations are being exposed to these compounds nor is there any imminent health threat from these chemicals. Repeat tests of drinking water produced from the on-site water well have not detected any of these or other chemicals.
- No institutional controls are currently implemented on the site. Government Contacts
