    Stage of Clean-up: Remedial Assessment Not Begun

    The Jacobsville Neighborhood Soil Contamination (JNSC) site is located in Evansville, Indiana in a predominantly residential area including a hospital, a school, and several small businesses. The contamination was discovered during an analysis of residential soils collected as part of a reassessment for the Evansville Plating Works (EPW), U.S. EPA ID: IND006383145, which revealed elevated levels of lead. The EPW site is an abandoned electroplating and metal refinishing facility. In 1990, the U.S. EPA conducted a removal activity at the facility to remove plating wastes. EPA's contractor conducted a Screening Site Inspection (SSI) under CERCLA after the removal activity. The SSI concluded that no further action was needed and the site was assigned a No Further Remedial Action Planned (NFRAP) status. In summer and fall of 2000, IDEM (Indiana Department of Environmental Management) staff conducted a reassessment of the EPW site because no offsite samples were collected as part of the SSI. The NFRAP status was based upon the on-site samples collected as part of the SSI and the on-site removal activities. Residential soil samples were collected as part of the reassessment. Analysis of the soil samples collected in 2000 revealed elevated levels of lead. Lead levels in the residential soils were found to be as high as 6,150 mg/kg.  More...
