This decision document presents the selected remedial action for the residential areas of the Tar Creek Superfund Site (the 'Site'), in Ottawa County, Oklahoma. The remedy addresses the contamination from mining waste in the residential areas of the Site. The major components of the selected remedy include: Excavation of lead-contaminated surface soil in residential areas; Replacement of excavated soil with clean soil and restoration of the remediated areas; Disposal of excavated soil on-Site in dry mining waste areas remote from the residential areas or, in the event of inability to dispose of excavated materials on-Site, disposal off-Site in an approved landfill; Covering or replacement of mining waste in traffic areas located near residences; Restriction of access to mining waste areas located near residences by use of physical barriers (e.g., fences and warning signs); and County-wide implementation of institutional controls, including community protective measures, to supplement engineering response actions.
