The document presents the selected interim remedial action for the Par Pond operable unit, defined as the approximately 1340 acres of sediments at the periphery of the Par Pond Reservoir that were exposed as a result of the drawdown of the reservoir from 200 ft to 181 ft mean sea level (msl). Remedial alternatives were developed for interim remediation of the exposed sediments caused by the reservoir drawdown. Regarding the remediation/restoration of Par Pond, DOE is scoping a phased approach to identify the optimal sequence of investigative activities of unit actions. An interim action is initially being proposed to remediate the immediate potential risks caused by exposure of contaminated sediments due to reservoir drawdown including associated efforts upon the reservoir, due to erosion of exposed sediments.
