Five Year Review for the General Motors Superfund Site

Remediation Site
Excavation into the GM Dump.


The purpose of a Five Year Review report is to evaluate the effectiveness of the cleanup remedy once it has been completed. The cleanup remedy at the old GM site is actually over a year from completion, so this report acts more like an update on the current site conditions of the property.

Executive Summary
This is the third five-year review for the General Motors (Central Foundry Division) Superfund site, located in the Town of Massena, St. Lawrence County, New York. The triggering action for this statutory five-year review is the date of the completion of the July 2010 second five-year review. The remedies for both operable units are expected to be protective of human health and the environment upon completion of all groundwater, soil and sediment remedial activities and the implementation of institutional controls. In the interim, remedial actions have been completed in the St. Lawrence River, Raquette River, and Turtle Cove and, when combined with the existing fish advisories, these measures address unacceptable exposure pathways in these areas. For those properties on Tribal lands where access has been granted, remedial actions have been completed to be protective for current uses. Remediation of the remaining Tribal soils and sediments, on-property soils at the 10 million gallon lagoon and the groundwater has not been completed.
