We make every effort to ensure the data presented here is accurate based on the best available information currently on file with DEC. It is therefore subject to change as new information becomes available. We recommend contacting the assigned project staff prior to making decisions based on this information.


In May 2015, contaminants above DEC cleanup levels were discovered in soil during a limited Phase II Environmental Site Assessment conducted as a part of a property transaction. The oilfield pipe repair facility has been closed since 1994. Eight surface soil samples, three soil borings to 15 feet and a fourth to 35 feet were drilled. No groundwater was encountered. Field screening for radiation was conducted with a Ludlum Ratemeter. Samples were sent to the lab for comparison. All naturally occurring radio active materials (NORM) results exceeded residential screening levels for external radiation and direct ingestion. One sample exceeded worker soil screening levels. Surface soil samples had exceedances for arsenic above background levels but may be naturally occurring. Paint samples collected from machinery and wood had exceedances for chromium and lead. Sand blast materials had exceedances for chromium and arsenic. Surface soil samples had diesel range organics (DRO) up to 24,000 mg/kg and residual range organics (RRO) up to 36,000 mg/kg. Sludge samples had DRO concentrations up to 113,000 mg/kg and RRO at 278,000 mg/kg. The property also has an associated site (Hazard ID 663 / File no. 2320.38.004).

9/28/2015 Report or Workplan Review - Other Review and approve work plan to address petroleum contaminated soil removal discovered on site during a Phase II environmental site assessment. Peter Campbell
2/2/2016 Update or Other Action Approval to thermally remediate 282 tons of petroleum impacted soil at Alaska Soil Recycling in Anchorage. Peter Campbell
5/20/2016 Report or Workplan Review - Other Review "Field Report for the Contaminated Soils Removal, ASRC Artic Pipe Inspection (March 2016)," which documented soil removal and sampling activities at six locations on the property. Two areas have remaining hydrocarbon impacted soils that cannot be accessed because of structures. ADEC has requested additional assessment to determine the vertical and horizontal extent of contamination and additional soils and potentially groundwater testing/characterization. Peter Campbell
7/13/2016 Report or Workplan Review - Other Review "Site Investigation Work Plan, ASRC Artic Pipe Inspection (June 30, 2016)," which outlined proposed soil boring activities two locations on the property. Eight soil boings and potentially three monitoring wells may be drilled on the property to explore the vertical and horizontal extent of contamination. The work is proposed for the summer of 2016. Peter Campbell
10/20/2016 Site Visit Site visit to inspect open excavations in the straightener building and the drum storage area. Peter Campbell
1/23/2017 Site Characterization Workplan Approved Workplan approved for excavation of diesel and residual range impacted soils in the area of the Recoil Office. The consultant estimates 5 cubic yards of impacted soils will be removed. Peter Campbell
7/12/2017 Update or Other Action Approved thermal remediation of approximately 5 cubic yards of soil. Peter Campbell
1/2/2018 Report or Workplan Review - Other Reviewed Removal Action Report (Aug. 31, 2017). Report identified chlorinated solvents in a side wall sample at 7' below ground surface. ADEC will require that a work plan be developed to assess and or remediate the contamination. Peter Campbell
6/21/2018 Report or Workplan Review - Other Review and approve a work plan to drill soil borings to identify the extent of solvent contamination identified at the former above ground tank location. Sampling is to include sampling the on site water well. Peter Campbell
