A Time-Critical Removal Action was conducted by Honeywell International, Inc. (Honeywell), under an Administrative Order on Consent (AOC), at the HoltraChem Site (also known as Acme Alkali) during 2003-2004, which addressed all containerized hazardous wastes at the Site. In mid-2004, Honeywell began an Engineering Evaluation / Cost Analysis (EE/CA) under a second AOC with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 4, to determine the removal actions required for contaminated soil, sediment and surface water at the Site, and potential future remedial actions required for groundwater. The EE/CA is nearing completion. However, PCB contamination from the HoltraChem Site has been found on the neighboring IP’s property. IP needs to expand their permitted industrial landfill as soon as possible into the area of known PCB contamination. Therefore, a removal action is required to excavate the PCB contamination from the IP property and stockpile it on the Holtra Chem property until the EE/CA is completed and the final soil cleanup is selected and implemented. This Removal Action is being implemented by Honeywell and International Paper Company, the Potentially Responsible Parties (PRPs), under a third AOC with the EPA.
