Riverfront Superfund Site Announces Availability of the Record of Decision, New Haven, Missouri


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the availability of the Record of Decision that presents the selected remedy for the Riverfront Superfund Site (Site), Operable Units (OU) 2 and 6. The selected remedy addresses source area contamination and groundwater contamination affecting both operable units. The Record of Decision also contains a responsive summary that includes responses to comments received regarding the site.


In 1986, the volatile organic compound (VOC), tetrachloroethene (PCE) was detected in two public-supply ground water wells owned by the city of New Haven. Following the discovery of the contamination, two new public-supply wells were installed in the southern part of the city and several investigations to determine the source of the contamination were conducted by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and EPA. Based on information obtained through site investigations, EPA has divided the Site into six operable units. EPA placed this Site on the National Priorities List in December 2000.
