In March 2011, Steel Dynamics submitted a work plan for installation of off-site wells as requested by EPA. EPA requested off-site wells to define the extent of manganese in groundwater coming from the facility. Two rounds of groundwater sampling were conducted during the second half of 2011. Analytical results of the 2nd round were submitted in December 2011. EPA was satisfied that the extent of groundwater contamination had been characterized and requested Steel Dynamics revise and re-submit the RCRA Facility Investigation Report to include any additional investigation work since the Report was last submitted in 2006. The revised Report is expected to be submitted in late fall 2012.
RESC operates an electric arc furnace steel mill facility on parcel of property about 63 acres in size. RESC began operating the steel mill on this property in 1955. The facility produces steel billets and high quality finished steel products, such as angles, channels, rounds and flat bars. All finished steel products are made from a feedstock of scrap metal and alloys.
Prior to 1955 the site was used as farmland. Surrounding land uses include residential properties to the north and Norfolk Southern Railroad line and rail yard to the west, south and east.
No institutional controls are currently in place.
