Pennsylvania Priority List of Hazardous Sites for Remedial Response

   Preamble

1.  Background

   The Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act (HSCA) (35 P. S. §§ 6020.101--6020.1305) was enacted in 1988 to provide for the cleanup of Pennsylvania sites that are releasing or threatening the release of hazardous substances. Section 502(a) of HSCA requires that the Department publish in the Pennsylvania Bulletin a priority list of sites with releases or threatened releases for the purpose of taking remedial response. This list is called the Pennsylvania Priority List of Hazardous Sites For Remedial Response (PAPL). The Department places sites on the PAPL when the Department has determined through investigation that there are releases or threatened releases of hazardous substances, or releases or substantial threatened releases of contaminants which present a substantial danger. In accordance with the requirements of section 502(a) of HSCA, the Hazard Ranking System (HRS; 40 CFR Part 300, Appendix A), established under the Federal Superfund Act, as amended, is utilized to rank the sites for placement on the PAPL. The HRS uses mathematical formulas that reflect the relative importance and interrelationships of the various human health and environmental factors to arrive at a final score on a scale of 0 to 100. The values are assigned using information obtained from site investigations. Section 502(a) of HSCA also directs the Department to consider its administrative, enforcement and financial capabilities when placing sites on the PAPL. The proposed listing notice is issued under HSCA section 502(c). The HRS was created by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency and appears at 40 CFR Part 300, Appendix A in accordance with the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986.

2.  Summary and Purpose

   Placement of a site on the PAPL is used to identify sites which need further study and/or remedial response decisions to address threats to the public health, safety or the environment. The Department will decide on a case-by-case basis whether to take enforcement or other actions under HSCA or other authorities, and/or to proceed directly with HSCA-funded remedial response actions and seek cost recovery after the cleanup.

   Remedial response actions will not necessarily be taken in the same order as a site's ranking on the PAPL. The investigation conducted to place a site on the PAPL may not be sufficient to determine either the extent of contamination or the appropriate response actions for a site. The Department may undertake further site investigation and/or an analysis of remedial alternatives to determine appropriate response actions. The length of time needed to complete these studies will vary due to the complexity of a site. Response action decisions and implementation will proceed on individual sites regardless of the progress at other sites. Given the limited resources available in the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Fund, the Department must carefully balance the relative needs for response at the sites it has studied. The Department may decide not to immediately proceed with a HSCA remedial action or that no remedial action is necessary.

3.  Technical Evaluation Grants under Act 108

   Under section 510 of HSCA, the Department may make available a reasonable sum as a grant to the governing body of the host municipality of a site where the Department is considering a remedial response. The host municipality shall use this sum solely to conduct an independent technical evaluation of the proposed remedial response. The grant shall not exceed $50,000. Information and a technical evaluation grant package may be obtained from the Department regional office in which the site is located. Refer to the Additional Information section of this notice.

   A municipality will be sent grant information by the Department after a listing announcement has been published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. However, the grant will not be awarded until the proposed remedial response is available for public review. At that time, the municipality will receive the official grant award in order to proceed with the review of the Department's proposed remedial response.

F.  Site Listing Summaries

   The site summary for the Dupont/New Castle Junk Yard site is listed below. Site summaries for the sites previously placed on the PAPL are listed in the Pennsylvania Bulletins published on May 5, 1990, September 15, 1990, May 4, 1991, October 26, 1991, June 13, 1992, August 1, 1992, December 10, 1994, June 3, 1995, October 28, 1995, and March 9, 1996.

   Dupont/New Castle Junk Yard

   The Dupont/New Castle Junk Yard Site is approximately 25 acres in size, and is located in the northwestern section of the City of New Castle, and Union Township, in Lawrence County, PA. The site is located in an industrial area of New Castle. The site consists of two adjacent properties, an inactive junkyard owned by New Castle Junk Company, Inc. (NCJC) and the former ''Shenango China'' facility owned by Realties U.S.A., Inc. (located south of the junk yard).

   From 1910 to 1961, the northern portion of the site was the location of a chemical manufacturing facility and was operated by three different companies during the period. Chemical manufacturing operations involved the production of sulfuric acid from zinc sulfide by the lead chamber process. Since 1961, the northern portion has been the location of a scrap metal recycling operation (currently inactive junkyard); from 1961 to 1979, a battery reclaiming business was also in operation on this portion. Lead acid batteries were reclaimed by cutting off the tops, draining the fluid inside the casing onto the ground the removing the lead plates inside. The southern portion of and site contains a large china waste disposal area which has been used for the disposal of broken chinaware, plaster scrap molds, wooden pallets and other types of waste. Except for a small refractory operation, the china/pottery manufacturing facility is current inactive.

   Three general types of materials are present at the site:  waste material, fill material and unconsolidated sediments. Waste materials included battery casings, scrap and china/pottery manufacturing by-products, and were generally found near the ground surface. Fill materials consisted primarily of steel mill slag, cinders and ash, and were most likely deposited onsite to raise the elevation of the chemical manufacturing facility above the floodplain. The unconsolidated sediments (natural materials) consisted of clay, silt, sand and rock fragments, and were usually found near the bottom of the RI excavations/borings.

   Site studies have indicated the presence of heavy metal (primarily lead), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs; mainly polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons or PAHs), pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PBCs). Battery casings are present at the site in two significant disposal areas (north and south); primary contaminants in these disposal areas are inorganics with several samples exceeding the hazardous waste leaching level for lead.

   Based on a review of historical photographs and observations during the site study, it is apparent that slag fill material (probably originating from local steel mills) was deposited at the site and along the steep river embankment. The slag fill has been present at the site at least as long as the chemical manufacturing facility (1910), and varies from 0 feet along the western edge of the site to more than 15 feet along the bank of the Shenango River. Contaminants in the slag fill include PAHs, as well as inorganics; several samples tested as hazardous waste for lead. A contaminated soils area is located west of the site fenceline and east of the railroad tracks, along the former ''Shenango China'' facility; contaminants include PAHs and inorganics.

   Detected concentrations of VOCs were exhibited by groundwater samples from six monitoring wells. No significant concentrations of SVOCs, pesticides or PCBs were exhibited by groundwater samples from the site. Inorganic concentrations greater than background were detected in groundwater samples from monitoring wells throughout the site. Currently, no human or ecological exposures to site-related groundwater contamination are occurring at the site.

   Surface water and sediment samples were collected from the Shenango River, southern tributary and intermittent northern tributary. The Shenango River forms the eastern border of the site, and the southern tributary is a small stream which crosses the northern half of the site flowing west to east and discharging into the Shenango River. Water in the southern tributary originates primarily from offsite sources located west of the site; however, the site is contributing to the surface water and sediment contamination in this tributary prior to entering the Shenango River. The most significant impact of the site to the surface water and sediments in the study area are to the sediments. Impacts to river sediments are most evident in areas immediately adjacent to the site.

   The Department has determined that hazardous substances and contaminants are present in the surface and subsurface soil/fill/waste materials, surface water and sediments, and groundwater at the site.
