Hazardous Waste Cleanup: Giant Resource Recovery, Incorporated in Cascade, Virginia

On this page:

On January 10, 2006, the Solite Corporation – Virginia Solite Division, Cascade facility and Permit, under EPA ID No. VAD046970521, was modified to incorporate the land, the facilities, and the closure and corrective action responsibilities, as applicable, of the GRR, Cascade facility and Permit under EPA ID No. VAD077942266. This transfer of ownership and control of the GRR facility enabled the Corrective Action for the above two contiguous Solite Holding, Inc. Cascade facilities to take place under EPA ID No. VAD046970521.

Cleanup Status

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) reviewed all available Facility data and determined that there were no unaddressed releases of hazardous waste or hazardous constituents from the Facility. The decision represents "Corrective Action Complete without Controls". A Statement of Basis (SB) was public noticed on October 14, 2013, which proposed Corrective Action Complete without Controls. No comments were received and the final decision regarding the Facility was approved on December 19, 2013 as part of a Class 2 Permit Modification for incorporating the decision into the facility's Hazardous Waste Management Permit. The DEQ determined that its decision for the Facility is protective of human health and the environment and that no further corrective action or controls are necessary at this time. All Permit conditions and requirements have been fulfilled and the Permit will expire on January 19, 2014.
