The Enterprise Avenue site is located within the City of Philadelphia. It encompasses approximately 57 acres and is situated within the 100-year flood plain of the Delaware River. It has been determined that the site is contaminated with industrial and chemical wastes from the unauthorized disposal of approximately 5,000 to 15,000 drums containing paint sludges, solvents, oils, resins, metal finishing wastes, and solid inorganic wastes. The off-site disposal alternative was selected as the most cost-effective remedial action. This alternative includes: resampling and analyzing the stockpiled soils in 100-cubic-yard lots for key indicator parameters; on-site containment of soils which do not exceed key indicator limits; off-site disposal at a RCRA approved facility of soils which exceed parameter limits; grading, completion of clay cap and cover, and site vegetation. The capital cost for the selected alternative is estimated to be $4,324,000 and annual O&M costs are $4,200.
