The following information was initially shared by the U.S. EPA regarding the proposed cleanup of the West Troy Contaminated Aquifer Site:
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, working with Ohio EPA, is proposing a cleanup plan for the West Troy Contaminated Aquifer site. The site consists of groundwater contaminated with volatile organic compounds, or VOCs.
“Groundwater” is an environmental term for an underground source of fresh water. VOCs have been found in site groundwater and in one private drinking water well.
The proposed cleanup plan consists of:
- Injecting microorganisms and an organic carbon food source for the organisms (such as the simple sugar compound dextrose) to break down the contaminants.
- Connecting an affected property to the city of Troy water and removing a private well.
- Placing institutional controls on land and groundwater use.
- Monitoring groundwater and/or the potential for future vapor intrusion.
The plan is explained in a fact sheet available at www.epa.gov/superfund/west-troy-aquifer. More details are in a document called the Proposed Plan for Cleanup at West Troy Contaminated Aquifer Site, which can be found on the same website and in the local information repository at the Troy-Miami County Public Library, Local History Branch at 100 W. Main St., Troy.
