The 19-acre Cryo-Chem site is a metal fabrication facility in Worman, Earl Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. Land use in the area is semi-rural, with a woodland area located northeast of the site, and an onsite stream west of the contaminated area. Between 1970 and 1982, chemical solvents were used at the facility at a rate of two to three 55-gallon drums per year. EPA has divided the site into three operable units (OUs) for remediation. The ROD addresses contamination in soil caused by past facility operations, which continues to leach from the soil into the ground water system. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil are VOCs including DCA, and PCE, TCA, and TCE. The selected remedial action for this site includes sampling the area to better define the extent of the contamination; treating the contaminated soil onsite using vapor extraction; controlling air emissions using carbon absorption, and disposing of, or regenerating, any spent carbon; discharging any water captured during in-situ vapor extraction to the pump and treat system currently under design. The estimated present worth cost for the remedial action ranges from $53,500 to $66,400 based on the treatment selected.
