    Cleanup Status

    On September 30, 1996, EPA determined that Advanced Environmental Technical Services, L.L.C. has fulfilled all the conditions of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) Permit and there is no further investigation or cleanup required at the site. A RCRA Corrective Action Permit was issued to the facility on December 30, 1988, and by 1996, no further corrective action was required on the site. The human exposures and the release to groundwater are controlled. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) operational permit for the Advanced Environmental Technical Services, Coatesville facility remained in effect until January 17, 1999. Since operations at the facility were curtailed in 1996, the facility must notify and receive a new operational permit from PADEP if Advanced Environmental Technical Services expects to restart operations.
