Stacie Peterson, Remedial Project Manager (RPM)

overview of proposed borit npl site
Overview of Proposed Borit NPL Site
  • Located on West Maple Street & Chestnut Avenue in Ambler, PA
  • Properties were used to dispose of asbestos-containing material (“ACM”)
  • Includes Three Properties
    • Current Kane Core Property, which contains a tall asbestos waste pile
    • Water Reservoir Property
    • Portion of former Whitpain Park
removal vs remedial
Removal vs. Remedial
  • Removal Action =

Immediate/near-term emergency where EPA determines that a site may pose a direct threat to human health and/or the environment now, or in the near future;

removal vs remedial1
Removal vs. Remedial

Remedial Action (Superfund)= May not be an emergency, but still poses a long-term threat to human health and the environment

  • Assessed and scored under the Hazard Ranking System (HRS)
  • National Priorities List (NPL) of most contaminated hazardous waste sites in the nation
  • Full Nature and Extent of Contamination
  • Longer process from Removal Action
how the remedial program works
How the Remedial Program Works
  • Site was proposed for the National Priority List (NPL) in September 2008 and was listed on April 8, 2009.
  • Now What Happens?

First Step in Superfund Process

Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS)

(1) Investigate Contamination - Remedial Investigation (RI)

  • What’s out there (or “in” there)
  • Where it is and where it’s going
  • What threats it may pose (to human health and the environment)

(2) Develop Cleanup Options - Feasibility Study (FS)

  • How EPA determines what we can do about it
  • Evaluate methods to cleanup contamination
analysis of remedial alternatives
Analysis of Remedial Alternatives

As required by law, all Superfund sites use 9 criteria for remedy evaluation.

Threshold Criteria:

  • (1) Overall protection of human health & environment
  • (2) Compliance with state and federal laws (Applicable or Relevant and Appropriate Requirements (ARARs))

Primary Balancing Criteria

  • (3) Long-term effectiveness & permanence
  • (4) Reduction of toxicity, mobility, or volume through treatment
  • (5) Short-term effectiveness
  • (6) Implementability
  • (7) Cost

Modifying Criteria

  • State acceptance
  • Community acceptance
epa s proposed remedy
EPA’s Proposed Remedy
  • EPA’s proposed remedy is documented in the Proposed Remedial Action Plan (“PRAP”), which includes all evaluated alternatives.
  • After public comment, the final alternative is made part of the public record, the Record of Decision (“ROD”).

  • Design & Construct the Cleanup
    • Remedial Design (RD)
    • Remedial Action (RA)
  • Post-Construction Activities
    • Operation and Maintenance (O&M)
    • Five Year Reviews (FYRs)
