The final remedy included construction of a concrete cap to cap the landfill, a sheet pile wall adjacent to Chartiers Creek, and a groundwater remediation system. The EPA Corrective Action Permit (Institutional Controls) issued in September 1990 requires operation of a groundwater monitoring program and maintenances and inspections of the landfill cap and sheet pile wall. The facility has established financial assurance for corrective action. The Corrective Action Permit will be replaced by an environmental covenant as Institutional Controls upon termination of the permit.
