The Reilly Tar and Chemical Site occupies 80 acres in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. The Republic Creosote Works, which operated at the site between 1917 and 1972, fractionalized coal tar into various oils and produced creosote. The wastes resulting from this process polluted the land surface of the site and four underlying aquifers. The pollutants consisted primarily of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and related coal tar derivatives. The cost-effective remedial alternative selected for this site is treatment of the St. Louis Park Well SLP-15/10 by a granular activated carbon (GAC) water treatment system. GAC provides best available technology to restore drinking water quality and will also help prevent the spread of contamination. The estimated total capital cost is $750,000 and the first year O&M cost is estimated at $188,000.
