A Record of Decision ('ROD') for the Whitmoyer Laboratories Superfund Site ('Site') for Operable Unit Two (OU 2) was signed on December 17, 1990. Additional information became available following the issuance of the ROD for OU 2 which gave rise to the need for an ESD. Specific information acquired during the remedial design includes: (1) a detailed inventory of on-site wastes located within the vault and other on-site structures; (2) the current facilities with adequate capacity to safely and efficiently handle the wastes; and (3) waste acceptance by the RCRA Subtitle C treatment and disposal facilities. The wastes covered by this ESD include the Lower Value Wastes (sludge and sand), the Upper Vault carbon/tar and tar wastes, hazardous miscellaneous products and feedstocks, and hazardous wood and residual debris.
