The Ambler Asbestos Piles site is in the southwestern portion of the Borough of Ambler, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. This second operable unit for the site addresses the CertainTeed asbestos pile portion of the Ambler Asbestos site. The CertainTeed pile was created by the disposal of asbestos-cement scrap originating from asbestos pipe manufacturing operations at the CertainTeed plant. In addition, asbestos-contaminated sludge from a process water treatment settling pond was also disposed of at the site. Several inorganic contaminants have also been detected in the soil and debris of the pile as well as in surface water and sediment from Stuart Farm Creek. Because the actual sources of the inorganic contaminants in the creek have not been identified, a verification study will be performed to define the source of these contaminants. The primary contaminant of concern affecting the soil, sediment, debris, and surface water is asbestos. The selected remedial action for the site are included.
