The decision document presents the selected remedial action for the Prestolite Battery Superfund Site in Vincennes, Knox County, Indiana, which was chosen in accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), 42 U.S.C. Section 9601 et seq., and is consistent with the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), 40 CFR Part 300 to the extent practicable. The decision is based upon the contents of the Administrative Record for the site. The actual or threatened releases of hazardous substances from this site, if not addressed by implementing the response action in this Record of Decision (ROD), may present an imminent and substantial endangerment to public health, selfare, or the environment. The remedy selected for ground water contamination includes continued monitoring of the shallow and intermediate aquifers at the site as well as monitoring of surface water and sediments. The selected remedy also incorporates institutional controls on the placement of drinking water wells and natural attenuation of shallow contaminated ground water.
