In accordance with the 2016 Compliance Order on Consent (CO) Section XVII, NMED is selecting a remedy based on the information presented in the CME Report, and RCRA Facility Investigation (RFI) reports. NMED may choose a different remedy from what was recommended in the CME Report and is issuing this Statement of Basis and the public notice to provide an opportunity for public comment.
For maximum protection of human health and the environment and to ensure that the drinking water resource can be conservatively protected, NMED has determined that the selected remedy for MDA C must consist of waste excavation, characterization, and appropriate disposal of the buried waste. The selected remedy will also include an active and passive soil-vapor extraction (SVE) system to remove the VOC contamination detected in the soil pore gas, and plume monitoring and institutional controls. Excavation will ensure that the source of contamination at MDA C is removed, and the SVE system will mitigate and control vadose zone vapor phase contamination. Detailed information on this selection can be found in the Statement of Basis.
