Alcoa Properties Superfund site Public Comment Form

EPA is proposing a cleanup plan OU 2- Proposed Final Plan(44 pp, 27.76, About PDF) for soil contamination in OU-2. EPA’s recommended cleanup involves removing near-surface bauxite residue from six impacted areas within OU-2. The removed bauxite residue would then be taken to an area within OU-1 and covered with clean soil and vegetation. The excavated areas in OU-2 would also be covered with clean soil and vegetation. This alternative includes institutional controls such as land-use, access, and deed restrictions to limit the exposure of future landowners or users of the property. It also provides enhancement and control of surface stormwater by maintaining controls currently in place and assessing the need for any additional measures to contain stormwater within the site.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is extending the public comment period for its proposed cleanup plan to remove contaminated soil from 200-acre area known as Operable Unit 2 of the North Alcoa Site.

U.S. EPA invites your comments on this proposed cleanup plan from December 2, 2019 to March 5, 2020. All comments submitted during the public comment period will be included in the Agency’s final cleanup decision document.
