This decision document presents the selected Interim Remedial Action for the National Southwire Aluminum Company (NSA) Site, approximately four miles northwest of Hawesville, Hancock County, Kentucky. This Interim Remedial Action employs the use of extraction wells combined with a pump and treat system in order to prevent further ground water plume migration, to reduce contaminants in the Ohio River Valley alluvial aquifer at the Site, and to reduce the threat of additional contamination of the Ohio River. This action will also initiate ground water restoration while the Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS) and post RI/FS activities are being completed. Onsite contamination identified in the unconsolidated alluvial aquifer consists of cyanide, metals, and fluoride in two onsite ground water plumes. Leachate identified in the onsite landfills contains the above contaminants as well as volatile and semi-volatile organics, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
