Hilco has indicated in the Soil Management Report it filed with the City that the site-specific standard for lead required for the HRP intended uses for the site is 1,000 PPM. Will Evergreen remediate to this 1,000 PPM standard rather than the 2,240 PPM previously approved by PADEP?

Evergreen’s future cleanup plans will still compare all new soil data to both the statewide health and site-specific values to determine appropriate remedy selection.  In addition, Evergreen will reevaluate the current site-specific standard based on DEP’s proposed new soil standards and associated input values.
