The New Brighton/Arden Hills site, also known as the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP) site, is in New Brighton, Minnesota. Past disposal of ammunition manufacturing wastes onsite resulted in contamination of ground water beneath and downgradient of the site. A total of 14 waste disposal locations have been identified and assigned as Sites A through K. During remedial investigations at Site D, soil was discovered to be contaminated with PCBs and other organic and metal contaminants. A soil gas extraction system was implemented to remove the source of volatile organic contamination and reduce the potential of migration to ground water. In implementing the soil gas extraction system, PCB-contaminated soil was removed, stockpiled near Site D, and sealed with a plastic liner material. The interim remedy addresses the treatment and disposal of contaminated soil that is stockpiled near Site D. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil are VOCs including TCE and PCE, other organics including PCBs, and metals including arsenic and lead.
