The remedy selected at the facility per the EPA’s September 30, 1991 Final Decision and Response to Comments (FDRTC) consists of groundwater extraction and remediation and soil vapor extraction to treat TCE, TCA and chromium contaminated groundwater, and establishment of Institutional Controls requiring drinking water well installations controlled by the Montgomery County Health Department’s permitting process.
After 27 years of continuous pumping, drinking water standards have been achieved beyond the Facility boundary, however, EPA has determined that achieving drinking water standards immediately beneath the source areas located within the Facility boundary is not feasible from an engineering perspective. EPA’s proposal to modify the EPA FDRTC to establish a Technical Impracticality (TI) Zone and a series of new compliance points on the perimeter of the Facility property boundary will be made available for public comments from April 6, 2016 through May 6, 2016. The proposal requires ongoing groundwater monitoring and the implementation of a restriction on groundwater use within the TI Zone. Public Notice will be posted in the Town & Country Newspaper.
The Uniform Tubes Inc. (UTI) facility consists of approximately 40 acres located at 200 West 7th Avenue in the Borough of Trappe, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Operations at this facility began in 1964, and continue today. UTI manufactures high-precision, small diameter metal tubing and tubular parts.
The contaminants of concern at the facility are TCE, TCA, and chromium in soil and groundwater.
