The EPA issued an Action Memorandum on April 2, 2010 for a Time Critical Removal Action (TCRA) to stabilize the waste pits and to prevent direct human and benthic contact with the waste materials until the site is fully characterized and a remedy is selected.
A Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) is also being carried out to address the nature and extent of activities beginning with the preliminary perimeter. While the two impoundments are currently located directly north of the I-10 Bridge with one partially submerged in the San Jacinto River, an additional impoundment is suspected to be located directly south of the I-10 Bridge and is being investigated under the RI/FS. Watershed management strategies will address permitted disposal activities within the permits area of concern.
After the Site is fully delineated, a complete description will be presented in the Record of Decision, along with Wastes and Volumes to be addressed by the Remedial Action.
