Abstract
The 20-acre Hebelka Auto Salvage Yard site is an automobile junkyard in Weisenberg Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. The site was used as an automobile junkyard and for salvage operations. Scrap iron was recovered from used storage tanks that were disposed onsite, some of which still contained organic chemicals. In addition, approximately 1,000 cubic yards of used battery casings have been disposed of onsite in two piles, along with empty storage tanks and drums, junked cars, and miscellaneous scrap metal. In 1985, EPA investigations identified elevated levels of lead and chromium in soil and sediment. A 1989 Record of Decision (ROD) addressed remediation of site areas with lead concentrations exceeding 560 mg/kg in soil, as well as the piles of scrap battery casings above these soil areas. The ROD also provided for removal and recycling of the battery casings; and excavation and treatment of soil using cement- or lime-based fixation processes. The ROD was developed to address soil outside of the high lead concentration areas, ground water, surface water, and air. However, because site investigations have found no evidence of contamination in the media addressed in the ROD, there are no contaminants of concern. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
