In today’s presentation, the presenter described the topic of “source removal” as a remediation approach, summarizing it as “get rid of it.” It is understood that this is a plain-word explanation for a more involved process. What percentage of this project is proposed to be source removal, and where is the material to be removed going? What is the line of custody for such removal, at what stage are the applicable permits? Are the byproducts of such processes contaminants themselves, and does the proposal comply with regulations and standards for such byproducts?
These are all questions that are generally addressed in a Cleanup Plan. The Cleanup Plan(s) will be submitted subsequent to Remedial Investigation Reports.
