brownfield VOCs "vapor intrusion" CVOCs

Mehadrin Dairy Corp.
Site Description[1]
The Site, which is currently vacant, is surrounded by industrial and manufacturing with some residential properties nearby. Prior uses of the facility included a chemical works (exact nature not known) and a lacquer spraying and paper box storage facility. Phase I and Phase II Site Investigations (2003 and 2004) have been performed. The Volunteer was found eligible to participate in the Brownfield Cleanup Program and a Remedial Investigation (RI) Work plan was approved in November 2005. An RI was conducted in late 2005/early 2006. The RI confirms that onsite soils and groundwater are contaminated with VOCs (TCE and BTEX). The draft RIR was submitted in May 2006. A second submission was made in December 2006 and the final RIR was submitted in March 2007 and approved in April 2007.

Site Environmental Assessment

The site has been investigated through multiple phases. An RI completed in March 2006 confirms previous findings that onsite soils and groundwater are contaminated with chlorinated solvents and petroleum constituents. It has been determined that the site poses a significant threat. The final RI Report was approved in April 2007.

Site Health Assessment
The area is served by municipal water, therefore exposures to contaminated groundwater are not expected. Site Assessments have identified contamination in surface and subsurface soils. The extent of soil contamination is being evaluated during the Remedial Investigation. A soil vapor survey is underway to evaluate the potential for exposures due to soil vapor intrusion in future buildings.
