On June 18, 2010 the Environmental Indicator for Current Human Exposures Under Control was incomplete, for more information on indoor air is needed. On June 18. 2010, the Environmental Indicator for Migration of Contaminated Groundwater Under Control was a Yes. Currently the investigation is underway.
On December 25, 1985 a minor spill of polyvinyl acetate occurred. The spill was contained by a three-inch dike around the mixing tank. IN 1988, a Phase I hydrogeologic investigation was conducted. During this investigation a tank tightness test indicated that the 4,000 gal xylene UST was leaking. The UST was located inside the building beneath the concrete slab floor. A subsurface soil sampling showed contamination of xylene and ethylbenzene. In 1989 a Phase II Hydrogeologic Investigation occurred. During this investigation the 4,000 gal xylene UST was abandoned, evaluation of ground water for tidal effects from the tidally-influenced Delaware River was done, free product from the monitoring wells was removed, further delineation of soil contamination by soil gas survey was conducted and further characterization of groundwater contamination. During this investigation, soil remediation was determined to not be feasible at the site, due the building location. In 1990, an Environmental priorities preliminary assessment was done which should there were eight SWMU or AOCs at the site. A Remedial Action Plan for soil and groundwater contamination was conducted and an Act 2 Final Report of Site Investigations Remedial Activites and Risk Assessment was conducted. In order to get Act 2 approval an Institutional control prohibiting the on-site use of the groundwater was done.
