This decision document presents the selected remedial action for the Novak Sanitary Landfill Site (the 'Site'), South Whitehall Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. The remedial action selected for the Site is a final remedy which will address the principle threat and reduce risk to human health and the environment caused by the unlined landfill. To achieve this objective, the selected remedy will: (1) ensure containment of the landfill contents, (2) provide long term monitoring of ground water for residences adjacent to the Site that are utilizing the ground water for drinking water; (3) mitigate the continued release of contaminants leaching from the landfill to the aquifer; (4) control the migration of combustible gases such as methane, (5) ensure landfill contaminants in the Site's surface storm-water and leachate drainages outside the proposed landfill cap are either not of environmental risk or contained by the proposed cap.
