Where: Southern central portion of SSC near Building 3308
What: Use of solvents for on-site cleaning, and release of solvent waste
Contaminants: Organic compounds
Status: Clean up remedy included soil removal and active groundwater pump and treat system, which was implemented in February 2002. Monitoring includes sampling and analyzing water from the pump and treat unit and from selected wells according to a plan approved by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). As a result of the 5-year Review by the MDEQ in November 2007, the active remediation phase is through 2022 followed by post remediation (natural attenuation) in 2023 through 2027 to continue the degradation process for the remaining groundwater contaminates. The analytical data is presented to the MDEQ on an annual basis.
