EPA issued a Final Decision and Response to Comments (FDRTC) for the former Ravenswood facility, which is now partially owned by both Century Aluminum and Constellium Rolled Products (formerly Alcan) on November 8, 2011. EPA signed separate Consent Orders for implementation of the selected remedy with Century on March 29, 2013 and Constellium on August 7, 2013.
Century and Constellium submitted a combined Corrective Measures Implementation Plan in September 2013, which was approved by EPA. The Corrective Measures Implementation Plan for Constellium includes groundwater monitoring at the former sprayfield.
Located about three miles downstream from Ravenswood, WV, the Century Aluminum of WV site was built by Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Company in 1957 as a fully integrated aluminum producing facility. The facility consists of both an aluminum reduction plant and a fabrication plant that rolls aluminum ingots into plate, sheet and coil. The facility was operated by Kaiser until 1989, when it was sold to Ravenswood Aluminum Corporation. Ravenswood Aluminum bought the entire property except for two parcels retained by Kaiser (TRC Environmental Corporation purchased the two parcels from Kaiser in 2004). Ravenswood Aluminum changed its name to Century Aluminum of WV in 1997. In September 1999, Pechiney purchased approximately 500 acres of the Century Aluminum property including the cast house and fabrication plant from Century Aluminum. Century maintained the aluminum plant portion, and continued to produce aluminum up till 2009, when the plant was shut down. Century obtained a new EPA ID# WVR000016469 for the aluminum plant portion after the sale to Pechiney. Pechiney Rolled Products was bought by Alcan Rolled Products in 2003, which in turn was bought out by Constellium Rolled Products in 2011. Corrective Action is still associated with the original EPA ID number, which is now held by Constellium. Corrective Action still covers the entire site, both Century and Constellium parcels.
The main constituent of concern in the groundwater is cyanide, while the main constituents of concern in soil are polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).
