The Enviro-chem site is a former waste recovery/reclamation/brokerage facility in Boone County, Indiana. Adjacent to the site is another Superfund site, the Northside Sanitary Landfill (NSL) which, prior to the Record of Decision (ROD) amendment, was to be remediated in a combined remedy for both sites. Land use in the area is agricultural and residential to the north and west. In May 1982, the State ordered Enviro-Chem to close and environmentally secure the site because it failed to reduce hazardous waste inventories. Subsequently, two emergency removal actions were conducted to remove the major sources of contamination. The ROD amends the 1987 ROD and provides a comprehensive site remedy for the Enviro-Chem site addressing source control instead of ground water remediation. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil are VOCs including PCE, TCE, toluene; and other organics including phenols. The amended remedial action for the site includes treating contaminated soil onsite using soil vapor extraction with a granulated activated carbon system to control the extracted vapor and implementing a contingent remedy for a subsurface ground water collection and treatment system.
