Section 1 of this Supplemental Report is a comprehensive analysis of the effect of this new information on the Project findings, conclusions and recommendations. Additional efforts were made to quantify the number of fugitive emission sources in the refinery. Section 3 details this work, as well as the findings of an industry-wide study on fugitive emissions and leak correlation values. Section 4 describes an assessment of the sediment quality in Bull Creek and the Refinery stormwater settling basin, completed as a follow-up to the biomarker work performed by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. Section 5 includes the results of a survey of all residences within a one-mile radius of the Refinery which use as private well for their water supply. Section 6 includes an inventory of wildlife at the Yorktown Refinery and evaluation of the presence or absence of any endangered wildlife species on or near the site. A key conclusion of the Yorktown Project is that the objectives of environmental regulations -- less pollution and reduced risk -- could be achieved more effectively if facility managers are allowed to devise plant-specific compliance plans.
