Remediation System Evaluation, GCL Tie and Treating Superfund Site

The GCL Tie and Treating Superfund Site is located along the outskirts of Sidney in Delaware County, New York. The site is a former wood treating facility that was operated between the early 1950s and 1988 when the property was abandoned by the owners. The site soils and ground water were impacted by creosote-related compounds as a result of these historical activities. The site contamination has been divided into two Operable Units (OUs). The OU1 remedy, which was completed in 2001, addressed contaminated soils. The OU2 remedy addressed ground water contamination with a pump and treat (P&T) system. This RSE focuses on the OU2 remedy, which is now completing the first year of a 10-year Long-Term Remedial Action before being transferred to the State of New York for operation and maintenance.
