These graphics (Evergreen note: assumption is reference to graphics from the August 27th Public Information Session relating to remediation) all show problems relating to gasses and water…not contaminated soil. Will soil be removed and replaced with clean soil?

The remediation systems operated at the site historically and currently were installed to address groundwater or vapors since those represented potential risk pathways, which is why they were shown during the August 27th Public Information Session. The purpose of the information session was to review historic reports which include mostly Remedial Investigation Reports.  Remedial plans for all media, including soil, will be detailed in the future Cleanup Plan(s), as remediation options are not a topic of Remedial Investigation Reports. While some areas of soil impact have been excavated previously, soil remediation can also include institutional and engineering controls which eliminate a risk by blocking a pathway of exposure.
