6/18/2007 Institutional Control Record Established The closure decision is subject to the following conditions: 1. A Notice of Environmental Contamination will be recorded on the ADEC database to document that there is residual contamination remaining on site above the most stringent ADEC cleanup levels. 2. Any proposal to transport soil off site requires ADEC approval in accordance with 18 AAC 78.274(b). 3. According to the Alaska Railroad Corporation Act (ARCA) of 1985, property belonging to ARRC cannot be transferred to another party except by an act of the Alaska Legislature according to ARCA AS 42.40.285(1). In event a property transfer is approved by the Alaska Legislature, ARRC is required to notify ADEC and additional institutional controls may be necessary. Bill O'Connell
6/18/2007 Conditional Closure Approved The Department of Environmental Conservation, Contaminated Sites Program (ADEC) reviewed the environmental records associated with the former underground storage tanks (USTs) at the former ARRC Ferry Section House. This site had been contaminated by the release of a hazardous substance; however, based on the information provided to date, ADEC has determined that no further remedial action is required, and that the former ARRC Ferry Section House USTs can be closed subject to the conditions outlined in the conditional closure document. The hazardous substance contamination has been adequately addressed and does not pose an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment. Bill O'Connell
12/15/2011 Institutional Control Compliance Review IC review conducted and staff name changed O'Connell to IC Unit. Erik Norberg
1/8/2013 Institutional Control Record Removed The conditions at this site meet the 2009 closure policy, therefore ICs can be removed. The default requirement of no offsite transport of soil or groundwater will still apply. In accordance with 18 AAC 78.276(f)(2), ADEC may require additional site assessment, monitoring, remediation, and/or other necessary actions at this facility should new information become available that indicates contamination at this site may pose a threat to human health or the environment.
