LAND RECYCLING AND ENVIRONMENTAL REMEDIATION

UNDER ACT 2, 1995

PREAMBLE 1


Acknowledgment of Notices of Intent to Remediate Submitted under the Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (35 P. S. §§ 6026.101--6026.908).

   Sections 302--305 of the Land Recycling and Environmental Remediation Standards Act (act) require the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) to publish in the Pennsylvania Bulletin an acknowledgment noting receipt of Notices of Intent to Remediate. An acknowledgment of the receipt of a Notice of Intent to Remediate is used to identify a site where a person proposes to, or has been required to, respond to a release of a regulated substance at a site. Persons intending to use the Background Standard, Statewide Health Standard, the Site-Specific Standard or who intend to remediate a site as a special industrial area must file a Notice of Intent to Remediate with the Department. A Notice of Intent to Remediate filed with the Department provides a brief description of the location of the site, a list of known or suspected contaminants at the site, the proposed remediation measures for the site and a description of the intended future use of the site. A person who demonstrates attainment of one, a combination of the cleanup standards or who receives approval of a special industrial area remediation 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. Furthermore, the person shall not be subject to citizen suits or other contribution actions brought by responsible persons not participating in the remediation.

   Under sections 304(n)(1)(ii) and 305(c)(2) of the act, there is a 30-day public and municipal comment period for sites proposed for remediation using a Site-Specific Standard, in whole or in part, and for sites remediated as a special industrial area. This period begins when a summary of the Notice of Intent to Remediate is published in a newspaper of general circulation in the area of the site. For the sites identified, proposed for remediation to a Site-Specific Standard or as a special industrial area, the municipality within which the site is located may request to be involved in the development of the remediation and reuse plans for the site if the request is made within 30 days of the date specified. During this comment period, the municipality may request that the person identified as the remediator of the site develop and implement a public involvement plan. Requests to be involved and comments should be directed to the remediator of the site.

   For further information concerning the content of a Notice of Intent to Remediate, contact the environmental cleanup program manager in the Department regional office before which the notice appears. If information concerning this acknowledgment is required in an alternative form, contact the community relations coordinator at the appropriate regional office. TDD users may telephone the Department through the AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984.

Yong Company, Inc. has submitted a Notice of Intent to Remediate. Soil and groundwater at the site has been impacted by release PAHs. The intended future use of the site is for a parking lot and trail head that will accompany the Perkiomen trail located immediately adjacent to the site.

   Southwest Region: Environmental Cleanup Program Manager, 400 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15222-4745.

   Union Railroad Company Monongahela Junction Yard (Former), City of Duquesne, Allegheny County. Nicholas Palumbo, KU Resources, Inc., 22 South Linden Street, Duquesne, PA 15110 on behalf of Tom Besselman, Union Railroad Company, 1200 Penn Avenue, Suite 300, Pittsburgh, PA 15222-4207, and Jerome Gibas, General Manager, Kennywood Entertainment Partners, LP, 4800 Kennywood Boulevard, West Mifflin, PA 15122 has submitted a Notice of Intent to Remediate. Site contamination is likely associated with long-term use of the property as a railcar repair facility, and the historical use of slag fill in portions of the site. Arsenic, lead and chromium have been identified in site soils in concentrations above their respective MSCs for residential use, manganese, iron and the VOC, chloromethane, have been identified in site groundwater above their respective MSCs for residential, used aquifers. The future use of the property is currently anticipated to be amusement park-related maintenance and/or support activities.

   West Penn Hat & Cap Site, East Deer Township, Allegheny County. Christopher D. Tower, C. D. Tower & Associates, Inc., P. O. Box 307, Export, PA 15632 on behalf of F. Lynn Thompson, 1000 Treadway Trust, P. O. Box 428, Tarentum, PA 15084 has submitted a Notice of Intent to Remediate. The Act 2 site occupies about 8 acres of a larger tract within an industrialized area adjacent to the Allegheny River in East Deer Township. Groundwater beneath the site contains low levels of chlorinated VOCs of unknown origin. Localized surface spills of diesel fuel have already been remediated. 1000 Treadway Trust is seeking a release of liability for site groundwater. A Site-Specific and Statewide Health Standards will be applied where applicable. The site will remain nonresidential.

   Fourth and Main Site, City of Greensburg, Westmoreland County. John R. Thatcher, BL Companies, Inc., 213 Market Street, 6th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101 on behalf of Lori Foust, CFO, Inland American CFG Pennsylvania Portfolio DST, 2901 Butterfield Road, Oak Brook, IL 60523, and Karen Kautz, Representative of Owner, Inland Real Estate Acquisitions, Inc., 2901 Butterfield Road, Oak Brook, IL 60523 has submitted a Notice of Intent to Remediate. The site is currently a Citizens Bank branch location but was formerly an automotive repair garage/gasoline service station with four associated underground storage tanks. A geophysical survey conducted in 2001 did not identify any abandoned USTs onsite. Recent groundwater and soil investigations indicated VOCs and PAHs above residential MSCs but below nonresidential MSCs. A risk-based, Site-Specific approach with pathway elimination, and Engineering and Institutional Controls will be used to attain an Act 2 relief of liability. A post remediation care plan will be inacted to maintain the controls. The site will remain nonresidential.

   Gilmour Manufacturing, as subsidiary of Robert Bosch Tool Corporation, Somerset Borough, Somerset County. Raymond Orloski, MACTEC Engineering and Consulting, Inc., 700 North Bell Avenue, Suite 200, Carnegie, PA 15106 on behalf of David Luepke, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation, 1800 West Central Road, Mt.
