INCO Proposes Remediation Plan for "Historic" Uses, Public Comments Sought
The proposal, available at the Cabell County Public Library, includes establishing appropriate remediation standards and performing additional remedial action, if necessary.
This proposal states that Huntington Alloys contaminants of potential concern include volatile organic compounds, semi volatile organic compounds and other processes related to the manufacture of high grade nickel alloys for the aircraft and power industries.
One historic use --- though not stated in the advertisement --- was a parcel leased to the Atomic Energy Commission which produced and recycled products associated with the gaseous diffusion plants in Piketon, Ohio, Paducah, Ky., and Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Operating from 1952-1962, and dismantled 1978-1979, the Huntington Pilot Plant was dismantled and buried in a classified section of the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant. Contaminants from that landfill leeched into a nearby creek and contaminated an aquifer.
Questions or comments on the plan should be addressed to
