Action Information

Action Date Action Description DEC Staff
10/31/1995 Long Term Monitoring Established Shannon and Wilson report Interim Report Six Mile Groundwater Assessment identifies contaminated wells extending from McCall Holder properties to the northwest to Six Mile Village Subdivision. TCE plume is 1.1 mile long, 1/4 mile wide, and 100 feet deep. TCA plume closely corresponds to TCE plume. Localized benzene plume in Six Mile Village Subdivision. For both residential and monitoring wells, TCE detected in 51 wells, TCA in 40 wells and benzene in 19 wells. TCE at or above 70% MCL in 17 residential wells (additional two business wells above MCL), and benzene above MCL in 4 residential wells. Douglas Bauer
12/4/1995 Update or Other Action Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) conducts health consultation based on 10/31/95 sampling results. Concurs with ADEC's short- and long-term approaches. Douglas Bauer

1/8/2003 Update or Other Action Fact Sheet to be issued shortly for area-wide TCE ground water plume. Benzene plume on Denny property continues to shrink in size as a result of concentration decreases. Douglas Bauer
12/14/2004 Meeting or Teleconference Held A meeting was held with David McDowell, Mark Lockwood, and Jon Lindstrom to discuss future measures that could be performed by June 30, 2005. Douglas Bauer
12/28/2004 Update or Other Action Interim Summary Report, 2004 Long-term ground water monitoring received. Douglas Bauer
12/30/2004 Update or Other Action Water sampling results received from Shannon and Wilson and mailed to residences that participated in 2004 sampling. Twelve residences were sampled; four residences (1357 Leslie, 1319 Smithson, 1345 Smithson, 853 Conley) either refused sampling or could not be contacted after repeated attempts. Douglas Bauer

1/21/2005 Update or Other Action Dennis Gentleman telephoned to discuss scheduling difficulties and state that carbon filter in treatment system at 1366 Sloan had been changed. Douglas Bauer
2/1/2005 Update or Other Action Received Shannon & Wilson report titled " Long-term Ground Water Monitoring Six Mile Richardson Highway, Fairbanks, Alaska." Douglas Bauer
3/2/2005 Update or Other Action The water quality results for 1378 Smithson were returned in the mail as undeliverable because of no mail box. The results were sent to Mr. Curtis & Shana McNeal at 1370 Smithson the registered owners of the property. A check with the Fairbanks North Star Borough (database query and telephone call by Mitzi Read) found 1370 Smithson as the only valid mailing address. The water quality results were hand delivered by Mr. Douglas Bauer on 3/2/2005. There was no one home at a green house trailer at 1378 Smithson at the time so the results were left in the front door sill. The residence at 1378 Smithson qualifies for a water treatment system since the TCE concentration is 4.0 µg/L which is above the 3.5 µg/L water treatment criterion. The TCE increase is statistically significant based on previous sampling. Douglas Bauer
3/2/2005 Update or Other Action A gentlemen interested in purchasing property at the corner of Warner Road and the Old Richardson Highway visited the office. He was interested in ground water contamination in the Six Mile area. He was given two color prints of the ground water plume from the contaminated sites site summary page.
