Project Update September 16, 2009

Tranguch Treatment system continues operation. To date over 36 Million gallons of groundwater has been collected and treated. EPA, PaDEP and the US Army Corps of Engineers are evaluating the progress of the response mitigation efforts and assess the impact of other nearby sources of groundwater contamination on the plume of gasoline contamination from the Tranguch facility.

Assessment and closure of monitoring wells that are no longer required to monitor the plume is an ongoing process.

In response to an order from the City of Hazelton partial demolition of the former Tranguch Garage building began the week of October 16, 2007.with half the building still standing.

Sampling of select monitoring wells and indoror air continues by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
