Following the release of the proposed plan, EPA will hold a 30-day public comment period beginning on or before June 30th to provide an opportunity for the public to participate in the selection of the final cleanup alternative.

The proposed cleanup plan will address soil, sediment, groundwater and surface water contamination at the site. Soil at the site is contaminated with various chemicals, most notably arsenic. Groundwater at the site is contaminated primarily with volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
