Multi-Media Remediation at the Nuclear Metals, Inc. Site
The Nuclear Metals, Inc. Superfund Site remedy, estimated at $125 million in the ROD, includes five major components:
• Off-site disposal of ~82,500 cubic yards of soil and sediment (risk drivers are depleted uranium (DU) and PCBs),
• In-situ sequestration of DU with apatite below a ~0.4-acre disposal lagoon (down to bedrock), and for DU in a ~1.5-acre overburden groundwater plume,
• Physical containment of the disposal lagoon with a low-permeability wall extending ~85’ bgs and a RCRA C cover,
• Continued hydraulic containment (started as a NTCRA) with AOP treatment of 1,4-dioxane and VOCs in a ~29-acre overburden groundwater plume. Additional extraction wells added during the RD; and,
• Further delineation of 1,4-dioxane (~33-acres) and natural U (~10-acres) in bedrock (granite and gneiss) groundwater, pilot-testing, and evaluation of practicable remedial approaches. Successful implementation has required integrating a multi-disciplinary, multi-company project team. Significant public coordination efforts address remedial and site reuse issues.
