The Parkview Well Site is located in Grand Island, Nebraska. Two ground water contaminant plumes, the Northern Plume and the Southern Plume, have been identified at the site.
The Northern Plume is being addressed by a responsible party (Case New Holland America) through the Nebraska Remedial Action Plan Monitoring Act program under the oversight of NDEQ; whereas, the Southern Plume has no viable responsible party and was placed on the National Priority List (NPL).
The NPL portion of the site has been separated into two Operable Units: OU 1, the interim remedial action to address ground water contamination within and near the Parkview Subdivision, and to protect private and municipal wells impacted or threatened by the ground water contamination above cleanup levels; and OU 2, the site-wide final remedial action, which includes the Southern Plume source area and remaining ground water contamination. Operable Units divide an NPL site into smaller projects to more effectively manage the remediation efforts at the site.
EPA encourages the community to review the Administrative Record which contains information about past cleanup activities and next steps. The Administrative Record is available during normal business hours at the following locations:
