    Cleanup Status

    EPA Region 3 has determined that Corrective Action is complete and no land use controls are required (Corrective Action Complete without Controls) for the Facility. A public notice was posted in The Delaware County Times newspaper on February 18, 2009, and was followed by a thirty (30)-day comment period that ended on March 20, 2009. The Final Decision and Response to Comments became effective March 24, 2009.

    The Environmental Indicators (EIs) were completed on January 28, 2009. The two EIs are called "Current Human Exposures Under Control" and "Migration of Contaminated Groundwater Under Control." The EIs completed reflect the decision of Corrective Action Complete without Controls and have status codes of "Yes, Under Control" for both.
