Status & Cleanup Approach:
Status - An approximately seven year enforcement effort culminated in a 2008 legal agreement between the responsible parties, EPA, DOJ, and the State for cleanup of the site by a group of the responsible parties, clearing the way for the cleanup plan to get underway.
Additional sampling and tests were conducted on-site in 2008 to better inform the cleanup design. These pre-design investigations will conclude in 2009, the cleanup design is scheduled to be completed in 2010, and the cleanup is scheduled to start in 2011.
Cleanup Approach - The Beede Waste Oil Superfund site cleanup plan involves:
- Groundwater extraction and treatment;
- Excavation and off-site disposal of approximately 1,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment;
- Excavation and off-site disposal of approximately 75,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil at depths between 0 and 10 feet; and,
- In place treatment of approximately 70,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil at depths greater than 10 feet.
