The Fields Brook Site ('Site') is located in northeast Ohio, in Ashabula County, approximately 55 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio. The U.S. EPA issued a Record of Decision ('ROD') on September 20, 1986, which outlined the remedy selection process and the selected clean-up action for the Sediment Operable Unit ('SOU') of the Site. U.S. EPA has determined that five signficant differences will be made to the ROD. The significant differences to the remedy are: (1) Elimination of solidifcation requirements for excavation sediments which will be landfilled on-Site; (2) Thermal Treatment of the excavated sediments will be conducted at an Off-Site facility vs. an on-Site facility; (3) Development and presentation of the cleanup goals/standards for the sediment to be excavated; (4) Reduction of the excavated sediment estimated total volume from 52,000 cubic years to 14,000 cubic yards, including a reduction of the estimated thermal treatment sediment volume from 16,000 cubic years to 3,000 cubic yards; and (5) Elimination of the chemical waste landfill requirement contained in Section 761.75(b)(3) which specifies a fifty foot distance between the bottom liner and the historical high water table.
