The Love Canal Site is located in the southeast corner of the city of Niagara Falls and is approximately one-quarter mile north of the Niagara River. Between 1942 and 1952, Hooker Chemical and Plastics Corporation (now Occidental Chemical Corporation) disposed of over 21,000 tons of various chemicals into Love Canal. The solid and liquid wastes deposited into the Canal include acids, chlorides, mercaptans, phenols, toluenes, pesticides, chlorophenols, chlorobenzenes, and sulfides. The selected remedial action includes; hydraulically clean designated sewers, remove and dispose of contaminated sediments and inspect specific sewer reaches for defects that could act as pathways for contaminant migration; repair damaged flood gate at the South Storm and Sanitary Sewer; limit access, dredge designated portions of the creeks and hydraulically clean Black Creek culverts; perform temporary in-situ stablization of the contaminatted sediment via the erection of a berm until issues concerning the source of contamination of 102nd Street Landfill are resolved. All waste will be stored within the Love Canal containment system. In addition to the above remedial action, the installation of a permanent administration building is being recommended on-site. Total capital cost for the selected remedial alternative is estimated to be $8,929,000.
