HAZARDOUS SITES CLEANUP

Under the Act of October 18, 1988

Public Notice of Proposed Consent Decree
Millcreek Dump Site
Millcreek Township, Erie County

   Under section 122 of the Federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, as amended, 42 U.S.C.A. § 9622, and section 1113 of the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act (35 P. S. § 6020.1113), Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has entered into a Consent Decree concerning settlement of the Department's Complaint against Kondu Corporation (Kondu). The Department's Complaint concerns the response costs that the Department has incurred and will incur to cleanup the Millcreek Dump Site in Erie County, PA. The Department's Complaint is filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, at Doc. No. 93-297 (Erie).

   The Department has incurred over $700,000 in past response costs, and estimates that it will incur over $4 million in response costs in the future at the Millcreek Dump Site. However, based upon Kondu's limited ability to pay, the Department has agreed to settle its Complaint against Kondu for $130,000. The specifics of the Department's settlement with Kondu are set forth in the Consent Decree.

   The Department will receive and consider comments relating to the Consent Decree for 60 days from the date of this public notice. The Department has the right to withdraw its consent to the Consent Decree if the comments concerning the Consent Decree disclose facts or considerations which indicate that the Consent Decree is inappropriate, improper, inadequate or not in the public interest. After the public comment period, the Department's settlement with Kondu shall become final upon the filing of the Department's response to significant written comments to the Consent Decree and upon the United States District Court's approval of the Consent Decree.

   Copies of the Consent Decree are available for inspection at the Department's office at 230 Chestnut Street, Meadville, PA, and at the United States District Courthouse in Erie, PA. Comments may be submitted, in writing, to Hal Beavers, Project Manager, Department of Environmental Protection, Hazardous Sites Cleanup, 230 Chestnut Street, Meadville, PA 16335-3481. Further information may be obtained by contacting Hal Beavers at (814) 332-6648. TDD users may contact the Department through the Pennsylvania Relay Service at (800) 645-5984.

Notice of Revised Proposed Prompt Interim Response
Jackson Ceramix Site
Falls Creek Borough, Jefferson County and Sandy Township, Clearfield County

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), under the authority of the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act (35 P. S. §§ 6020.101--6020.1304) (HSCA), is proposing a revision to the response action for the Jackson Ceramix Site (site). The Department previously published a notice of proposed prompt interim response for the site on October 31, 1998. The site is located between Pennsylvania State Route 950, on the southern edge of Falls Creek Borough in Jefferson County, and Sandy Lick Creek in Sandy Township, Clearfield County, PA. The site is comprised of the property on which the Jackson China and Jackson Ceramix manufacturing companies operated, along with adjacent properties containing hazardous substances which have migrated from the manufacturing property, including, but not limited to, an adjacent drainage ditch, former lagoon area and wetlands to the east and southeast of the former manufacturing area.

   Elevated levels of hazardous substances occur in the site groundwater, surface water, sediments, sludge and waste. Significant levels of bromomethane, cis-1, 2-dichloroethane, tetrachloroethene, trichloroethene, vinyl chloride, lead and manganese are present in groundwater samples. Onsite surface and subsurface soil contains tetrachloroethene and lead. Waste, sludge and sediment samples contain elevated levels of asbestos, lead, cadmium, barium and arsenic. Sediment and waste sludge from the wetland contain elevated levels of lead, copper and nickel.

   For this prompt interim response, the Department has divided the former china manufacturing portion of the site into two areas of concern. They are:  (A)  the sumps, pits, septic tanks, ceramic manufacturing process materials, construction debris, asbestos-containing materials, staged materials and sludge in the onsite drainage ditch and settling lagoon (miscellaneous wastes); and (B)  the china waste.

   In the notice published on October 31, 1998, the Department proposed that the hazardous substance containing miscellaneous wastes would be removed for offsite disposal. The Department now proposes that the hazardous substance containing miscellaneous wastes instead be treated by stabilization/solidification techniques and be closed, along with the china waste, under a Class III Residual Waste Landfill cap. For the miscellaneous wastes, the Department's current alternatives for the prompt interim response now include:  1)  no action; 2)  disposal of the asbestos-containing waste and the staged materials at offsite, permitted facilities and onsite treatment of hazardous substance containing miscellaneous wastes by stabilization/solidification techniques and subsequent closure, along with the china waste, under an onsite Class III Residual Waste Landfill cap.

   The two alternatives for the china waste are unchanged from the October 31, 1998 notice, and include:  1)  no action; and (2)  closure as a Class III Residual Waste Landfill, in accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 288.234.

   Each alternative was evaluated with respect to three comparison criteria of:  1)  Effectiveness; 2)  Implementability; and 3)  Cost. Furthermore, this comparative analysis evaluated the relative performance of each alternative in relation to each specific comparison criterion. The comparative analysis identified advantages and disadvantages of each alternative, so that tradeoffs between the alternatives could be determined.

   Based on the comparative analysis the Department proposes to implement the revised miscellaneous waste Alternative 2 (offsite disposal of asbestos-containing materials and the staged materials and onsite treatment of hazardous substance-containing miscellaneous wastes by stabilization/solidification techniques, followed by closure, along with the china waste, under a Class III Residual Waste Landfill cap). The Department's chosen alternative for the china waste is unchanged as Alternative 2 (closure as a Class III Residual Waste Landfill, in accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 288.234), as the prompt interim response for those areas of concern at the site. This alternative is proposed because it would, in the more cost-effective manner, protect the public and environmental receptors from direct contact with site-related hazardous substances, and eliminate the ongoing release and threat of release of hazardous substances into the environment from the miscellaneous waste and the china waste.

   This proposed interim response would not be a final remedial response under section 504 of HSCA, and, therefore, would not be required to meet the cleanup standards that apply to final remedial responses. However, the alternative would be consistent with potential future remedial actions and future investigation activities.

   This notice is being provided under section 506(b) of HSCA. The administrative record, which contains the information that forms the basis and documents the selection of this response, is available for public review and comment. The administrative record is located at the Department's Northwest Regional Office, 230 Chestnut Street, Meadville, PA 16335, and is available for review Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please telephone beforehand for an appointment, (814) 332-6648.

   The administrative record will be open for comment from February 6, 1999, until May 7, 1999. Persons may submit written comments into the record during this time only, by sending them to Christine Dougherty, Project Manager, at the Department's Northwest Regional Office or by delivering them to the office in person.

   The Department will hold a public meeting on March 24, 1999, at 6:30 p.m., if requested by one or more members of the public. The meeting's purpose will be for the Department to answer the public's questions concerning the response at the site. The meeting will be held at the Falls Creek Municipal Building. Also, the public will have an opportunity to present oral comments, for inclusion into the administrative record, regarding the chosen prompt interim response, at a public hearing following the public meeting. Persons wishing to present oral comments must register with Christine Dougherty at the Department's Northwest Regional Office before March 17, 1999, by telephone or in writing. If no one requests a meeting or hearing, they will not be held. Persons interested in finding out if anyone has requested a public meeting or registered to present oral comments at the public hearing, should contact Christine Dougherty.

   Persons with a disability who wish to attend the hearing and require auxiliary aid, service or other accommodations to participate in the proceedings, should call Christine Dougherty at (814) 332-6648 or through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984 (TDD) to discuss how the Department may accommodate their needs.
