The remedial alternative described in this document represents the final remedy for the Janssen Inc. Site. It addresses contamination soil at the site and contaminated groundwater in the underlying aquifer. EPA has separated the response actions at the site into two different areas (the soil and the groundwater). Currently, soil contamination is being addressed by soil vapor extraction pursuant to an EPA Administrative Order signed in 1991. This action was implemented to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the soils beneath the Chemical Plant Building and thereby limit the leaching of VOCs into the underlying groundwater. A steam air stripping system, placed in operation in November 1994 in accordance with the Interim ROD, is addressed the groundwater contamination.
