Record of Decision (ROD) for Operable Unit OU1 (Front Street Site) and Operable Unit OU3 (Old City Dump)

Final September 30, 2003

Update November 20, 2003-- On September 30, 2003 the USEPA issued a Record of Decision (ROD) for both Operable Unit 1 (OU1) and Operable Unit 3 (OU3). A ROD is an EPA decision document which sets forth the remedy selection for a site or operable unit and serves the following three basic functions: it certifies that the remedy selection process was carried out in accordance with the Superfund statute and regulations; it describes the technical parameters of the remedy, specifying the methods selected to protect human health and the environment including treatment, engineering, and institutional control components, as well as remediation objectives/cleanup goals; and, it provides the public with a consolidated summary of information about the site or operable unit and the chosen remedy, including the rationale behind the selection. For OU1 the ROD calls for: (i) the imposition of institutional controls in the form of a restrictive covenant and easement to limit the possibility of human contact with contaminated soil and groundwater; (ii) periodic groundwater sampling; (iii) the installation and operation of a well which will actively treat contaminated soil and groundwater; and (iv) the sampling of the Missouri River to determine the effect, if any, that contaminated groundwater may have on the River. For OU3 the ROD calls for: (i) the imposition of institutional controls in the form of a restrictive covenant and easement to limit the possibility of human contact with contaminated groundwater; (ii) periodic groundwater sampling; and (iii) sampling nearby domestic wells. A more complete description of the remedial actions for these Operable Units can be found by following this link to the RODs.
