Site Description

The Oak Grove Village (OKV) Well site is a trichloroethylene (TCE) ground water site located in Franklin County, MO. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources Public Drinking Water Program first detected the TCE contamination in 1986. Low-level concentrations of the contaminant are widespread throughout the site.

Current Site Status and Cleanup Actions to Date

  • EPA conducted a short-term action in 2001 to provide whole-house filtration systems to two homes with private wells that had TCE contamination above health concern levels.
  • In 2007, EPA selected an interim remedy for the site.
  • In 2008, EPA completed the design for the interim remedy. The cleanup actions include: conducting ground water sampling; providing alternate water supplies, if necessary; plugging a municipal well and a monitoring well; monitoring the air stripper tied to the operating OGV municipal well; and implementing institutional controls.

Current Funding Status

  • In Fiscal Year 2008, EPA obligated approximately $328,000 for cleanup activities at this site including additional ground water sampling.
  • To date, EPA has obligated a total of nearly $400,000 for cleanup activities at this site.
