Grouped questions: 1) Evergreen may not fragment the Remedial Investigation Reports by diverting its deficiencies into a future Fate and Transport Remedial Investigation Report. 2)Once again, you are dealing with a corporate entity not dedicated to much beyond its profits and quite willing to put the health of its workers and the public at risk. The way this corporation has divided its reports, delayed releasing updates, promises to report later regarding crucial elements of the project that are needed to make a final decision is NOT the kind of behavior we want to see in our region. I find this appalling and needs to be separately addressed.

All Remedial Investigation Reports do contain Fate and Transport. Earlier AOI reports used the Domenico model to analyze the individual AOI areas.  The decision to complete a site-wide Fate and Transport model to be included in a separate Remedial Investigation report allows Evergreen to evaluate groundwater flow and contaminate transport on a site wide basis, since the groundwater conditions are not bound by AOI boundaries.  This cannot be completed until each of the AOI’s has been adequately characterized (indicated by agency approval of all RIRs). In addition, the proposed Fate and Transport Remedial Investigation Report will use a robust numerical 3D groundwater model which can more accurately predict groundwater contamination movement.  Also note, that the most recent Remedial Investigation Reports for each of the AOI’s do include Fate and Transport in the form of qualitative analysis as allowed under Act 2.
