Under Administrator Pruitt’s leadership, the Superfund program has reemerged as a top priority to advance the Agency’s core mission of protecting human health and the environment. The RI/FS commenced in June 2017 to gather the data needed to characterize site conditions, determine how much PCE remains in the subsurface soil and groundwater, and how to address the contamination. EPA will continue its investigation under the RI/FS to delineate soil contamination and site-related PCE contamination in the groundwater. A remedy to address the PCE in the soil will be presented to the community in an Interim Action ROD and Remedial Design once the FS is completed.
