The decision document presents the selected remedial action for the Himco Dump Site, Elkhart, Indiana. The purpose of the remedy is to eliminate or reduce migration of contaminants to the groundwater and to reduce the risks associated with exposure to the contaminated materials. The major components of the selected remedy include: construction of a composite barrier, solid waste landfill cover (cap); use of institutional controls on landfill property to limit land and groundwater use; installation of an active landfill gas collection system including a vapor phase carbon system to treat the off-gas from the landfill; an enclosed ground flare system will be implemented if landfill gas characterization studies indicate VOC emissions exceed ARARs (Indiana Administrative Code 326 IAC); and monitoring of groundwater to ensure effectiveness of the remedial action and to evaluate the need for future groundwater treatment.
