EPA States Human Exposure and Groundwater Controls to be determined at Huntington Plant

EPA States Human Exposure and Groundwater Controls to be determined at Huntington Plant

Based on an EPA document online, there is not sufficient data to determine whether human exposures and contaminated groundwater is under control. The data comes from an EPA site profile. The site states the results are to be determined and unkown. The data includes cleanup and corrective actions underway. 

In short, the page states:

First, at this site, there is currently insufficient information to determine whether human exposures are under control.

Second. at this site, there is currently insufficient information to determine whether migration of contaminated groundwater is under control.

Contamination:
Information on the contamination and the reason for the cleanup may be available. For further information, see the contact information provided above, or try the Statement of Basis Web Page to see if a Statement of Basis for the corrective action remedy has been provided to EPA.

Exposure:
Is human exposure to contamination at this site under control? Unknown
Is the migration of contaminated groundwater at this site under control? Unknown

Environmental Indicator Evaluations

EPA and the authorized states are responsible for determining whether facilities have achieved the Environmental Indicators.  However, EPA and states encourage facilities (or the facility's consultant) to independently conduct an Environmental Indicator evaluation. EPA developed Environmental Indicator guidance to assist regulators and facilities through this evaluation. In some cases, facilities have voluntarily filled out Environmental Indicator forms to "self-assess" their status, and have initiated activities on their own to meet the Environmental Indicators. You can obtain these Environmental Indicator forms at the following EPA national web site:  http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/hazard/correctiveaction/eis/index.htm.

Environmental Indicator Guidance

EPA issued detailed guidance (EPA, 1999) to help those conducting Environmental Indicator evaluations. You can access that guidance at http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/hazard/correctiveaction/eis/index.htm. The guidance includes a series of questions and a flow chart to help arrive at one of the following three possible outcomes: YES, the facility has achieved an Environmental Indicator goal; NO, the facility has not achieved an Environmental Indicator goal; or, IN, there is insufficient information available to determine whether or not a facility has achieved an Environmental Indicator goal

Getting to YES

Facilities can meet these goals through a variety of ways. For the Current Human Exposures Under Control Environmental Indicator, a facility should be able to demonstrate that there are no unacceptable human exposures to contamination that can be reasonably expected under current land and groundwater use conditions. For the Migration of Contaminated Groundwater Under Control Environmental Indicator, a facility should be able to demonstrate that contaminant plumes throughout the entire facility are not continuing to get larger or negatively impacting adjacent surface water bodies, and that the facility will monitor groundwater to verify whether the environmental indicator determination remains valid.
