PCB Capacitor Burial/Pole Yard
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Facility Investigation (RFI)
The PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) capacitor burial/pole yard and Building 2721 (former transformer maintenance facility) were sources of PCB contamination.
Additional RFI sampling identified more PCB contaminated sediments in a tributary to Boggs Creek downstream from Building 2721.
Several interim measure (IM) excavations removed PCB contaminated soil and sediment in 2004, 2013, 2014, 2016, and 2017.
IM report recommended no further action
Supplemental RFI recommended additional surface water and sediment monitoring is needed to confirm the stream is not being recontaminated. Two rounds of surface water and sediment sampling are planned for 2019.
