On September 29, 1988, EPA issues a final remedial action plan in the form of a ROD for the Site. At the time the ROD was written, EPA had identified air emissions from the landfill as the principal risk at the Site. To address this risk, the ROD called for a comprehensive remedy including upgrading the landfill closure, construction and operation of a gas collection and thermal destruction treatment system, remediation of wetlands near the Site and Site monitoring. On March 8, 1991, EPA issued an ESD to remove requirement for the wetlands remediation. Since then, the landfill closure and an enclosed flare system have been designed and constructed. Operation, maintenance and monitoring activities are currently on-going at the Site.
