Remediation Update

By Craig Arquette, Environmental Specialist


2013 update Five Year Review for General Motors Superfund Site
Kenténha / October 2015
Right now, work is underway to remediate the North Disposal Area (NDA) and the industrial lagoons. The NDA contains sludges and other contaminated debris. When the Plant was in operation, the lagoons would fill with sludges containing PCBs. In order to maintain the lagoons, these sludges would be transferred to the NDA. During this remediation project, if needed, air emissions will be controlled by foam suppression techniques. This will keep down dust and odors. The contaminated soils will be sent off-site to a secure landfill in Indiana. Non-hazardous waste soils will be sent to Clinton County landfill. This work is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

Craig Arquette Demo the concrete slab and the contaminated soils
Seskéha / August 2012
Right now, demolition efforts continue for the former GM Plant. Last year, the old plant building was demolished down to the concrete slab. Work began in April to demo the concrete slab and the contaminated soils under it. The contaminated demolition debris and soils will be sent off-site to a secure landfill at Model City NY. Non-hazardous waste soils will be sent to Boonville NY in Oneida County. This work is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
