HAZARDOUS SITES CLEAN-UP

Under the Act of October 18, 1988


Prompt Interim Response

National Granulating Company, Inc.
(A.K.A. Washington Tire Fire)
City of Washington, Washington County

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), under the authority of the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act (35 P. S. §§ 6020.101--6020.1304) (HSCA), initiated an Interim Response at the National Granulating Company, Inc. site. This response was taken under section 506(b) of HSCA.

   The National Granulating Company, Inc. site is located at 41 Detroit Street, Washington, Washington County, PA. The site, approximately 11 acres in size, contained four buildings, and approximately 1.8 million whole and chipped tires. The site is located in a mixed residential and light industrial area. The nearest residence is less than 200 feet from the site.

   A fire, which started on February 27, 1997, consumed nearly all of the whole and chipped tires, two buildings and involved approximately 3 acres of the site. Hazardous materials released to the environment, as a result of the fire, adversely impacted onsite and offsite air quality, on-and offsite water quality, including an unnamed tributary to Catfish Run, Catfish Run and Chartiers Creek and both onsite and offsite soils.

   The release of hazardous materials posed a health threat to those individuals exposed to the smoke plume and those in contact with the contaminated soils and waters. The release also posed a threat to persons using surface waters for recreational and agricultural purposes and resulted in a fish kill in Catfish Run.

   The Department began its response to the fire on February 27. Its major objective was to protect human health while providing protection to the environment.

   The Department monitored air quality around the site and within the contaminant plume migrating offsite. In conjunction with fire fighting activities, the Department instituted measures to protect the receiving waters by using check dams, booms and oil/water separators.

   Between March 2 and March 7, 1997, the Department worked to control offsite air contamination by assisting the fire departments in extinguishing the fire. Through its interim response contractor the Department processed the materials by clenching the burning rubber to lower the temperatures below its flashpoint, and moving the materials offsite for disposal. This process reduced air emissions, provided control over the material to insure no auto re-ignition, and made room for fire fighters to fight the fire. Concurrently, run-off water from the fire was recirculated back to the fire or treated prior to discharge.

   From March 5 until March 14 processed material was sent for disposal and contaminated surface water run-off was collected and treated. From March 14 through March 20, contaminated soils were removed and disposed of at a permitted disposal facility.

   Between April 1 and April 3, 726 drums of Latex material were removed from the site for disposal. Between April 3 and April 28 the remaining 500 drums were overpacked and readied for disposal at a permitted site.

   The Department and other involved emergency management leaders considered the following options during the emergency response: 1) allow the fire to burn itself out, 2) allow the fire to burn itself out and collect the surface water run-off, and 3) work to extinguish the fire, collect and treat surface water and dispose of contaminated soils and materials.

   This notice is being provided under section 506(b) of HSCA. The Administrative Record which contains the basis and documents the selection of this response action is available for public review and comment. The Administrative Record is located at the Department's Southwest Regional Office, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15222-4745 and is available for review Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Administrative Record will be open for comment from May 17 until August 18. Persons may submit written comment into the record during this time only by sending them to Terry Goodwald at 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15222-4745 or by delivering them to this office in person.

   In addition, persons may present oral comments for inclusion into the Administrative Record during a public hearing on Wednesday, June 18. The hearing will be held at 7 p.m. in the City of Washington Council Chambers, City Hall, Washington, PA. Persons wishing to present comments must register with Betsy Mallison at (412) 442-4182 or in writing to Pennsylvania DEP, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15222-4745.

   Persons with a disability who wish to comment and require an auxiliary aide, service or other accommodations to do so, should contact Betsy Mallison or the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984 (TDD) to discuss how the Department may accommodate their needs.

A person who demonstrates attainment of one or a combination of the cleanup standards identified under the act will be relieved of further liability for the remediation of the site for any contamination identified in reports submitted to and approved by the Department and shall not be subject to citizen suits or other contribution actions brought by responsible persons not participating in the remediation.
