Abstract:

Remedial action alternatives were developed using the potentially acceptable technologies and representative process options identified in Section 9.0. The potential pathways that are addressed in this feasibility study FS are as follows Groundwater Seep discharges Soil, and Sediment and surface water in the Snowmelt Pond. The goal of the FS is to evaluate multi-media alternatives i.e., grouping of actions that, together, address the three pathways. Even with only a small number of actions that address each pathway, the number of combinations that would address multi-media impacts in different parts of the OU would be very large. Therefore, media-specific alternatives are screened in this section and evaluated in detail in Section 11.0. Multi-media alternatives are developed in the comparative analysis section of Section 11.0. Since the Snowmelt Pond has a presumptive remedy of constructed wetlands, the pond is discussed in detail in Section 11.0.
