Title: Superfund explanation of significant difference for the record of decision (EPA Region 4): Wrigley Charcoal Plant, Wrigley, TN, October 20, 1997

Abstract

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing this Explanation of Significant Differences (ESD) for the Wrigley Charcoal Superfund site (``the Site``) in Wrigley, Hickman County, Tenn. The purpose of this fact sheet is to modify the Interim Action Record of Decision (IAROD) issued on September 30, 1991, and to inform the public of current site conditions and future actions.

  • The Reilly Tar and Chemical Superfund Site (the Reilly site) is located at 1500 South Tibbs Avenue in the southwest quadrant of Indianapolis. The Remedial Action at the South Landfill was completed in April 1996. This action included the solidification of approximately 12,882 tons of sludge in the south landfill and the placement of a soil cover over the solidified area. During thermal treatment operations at the site, it was determined that the majority of the soils to be treated by thermal desorption contained extremely high BTU levels. A series of off-site disposal options were evaluated and submitted to USmore » EPA for consideration. These off-site disposal options included both treatment options and options for off-site disposal at a compliant landfill. Because the selected remedy employed treatment to address the highly contaminated soils removed from the hot spot areas, and the remedial intent of the ROD was to remove the contaminants present in the soils, US EPA and IDEM favor the treatment options presented for the remaining soils.« less
  • The September 15, 1988 Record of Decision (ROD) (PB89-206247) called for treatment of contaminated soil and sludge from the lagoons by bioremediation, returning the treated material to the lagoon area, covering it with clean soil and establishing a vegetative cover. The ROD also required decontamination and disposal of piping and pumps associated with the lagoons. Due to the lack of success of bioremediation, alternative remedial alternatives evaluated during the June 1988 Feasibility Study (FS) of B and M Lagoons were reinvestigated. Asphalt batching has become an accepted treatment technology that can be used to produce a cleanup that is moremore » cost effective than the on-site stabilization option considered in the FS. This technology would result in off-site treatment and reuse which eliminates the need to utilize a costly on-site cap over the concrete-stabilized material.« less
  • A Record of Decision (ROD) for the North Penn Area 1 was signed on September 30, 1994 (PB94-963920). This ROD addresses primarily contamination of soil, but also includes an interim action to address ground water contamination. Levels of contamination in soils at the Parkside Apartments property were below the remediation goals established in the ROD. Therefore, excavation of soils is not planned at this property, only at the Granite Knitting Mills and the Gentle Cleaners property. Also, as part of the remedial design activities, three new wells were installed and sampled.
  • Please be advised that there is an error within Attachment E (Technical Evaluation of Proposed Ground-Water Treatment and Disposal Alternatives) of the ``Responsiveness Summary for the Second Explanation of Significant Differences, Lowry Landfill Superfund Site`` document. The evaluation table, which summarizes the rankings of the two cleanup alternatives, failed to include numerical values for State Acceptance and Community Acceptance. Enclosed is a copy of the table as it should have appeared in Attachment E. Copies of this errata sheet are being mailed to all recipients of the Responsiveness Summary.
  • This decision document sets forth the basis for the determination to issue the Explanation of Significant Differences (ESD) for the Pinette`s Salvage Yard Superfund Site in Washburn, Maine. Groundwater sampling data collected during the Management of Migration Pre-design studies following the completion of the source control remedy indicates that the concentration of VOCs have decreased to below or near the target cleanup goals established in the 1989 ROD. The monitoring results demonstrate that the primary objective of the Management of Migration component of the ROD has been achieved--PCB migration has been sufficiently reduced. This ESD also adjusts the site targetmore » cleanup goal for lead to the current nationally accepted MCL of 15 ppb.« less
