Problems/Comments

The pulp mill site consists of the industrialized complex where pulping and milling has occurred as well as related facilities such as the KPC landfill and other contaminated areas where hazardous substances from the complex have migrated and potentially pose a threat to public health or the environment. The site is divided into an Upland Operable Unit and a Marine Operable Unit which is being addressed by EPA under terms of a Consent Decree. Last staff assigned at NFRAP was Janes EPA ID AKD009252230; EPA site name Ketchican Pulp Company.

7/31/1998 Update or Other Action Arsenic Management Plan released. The topsoil as it was fabricated by the landfill contractor can be used as a landfill cover without exceeding acceptable risk levels. If additional imported topsoil is needed, and the contractor needs to use mineral fines other than their current overburden, testing for arsenic should be required. The topsoil arsenic concentration should be less than 275 mg/kg, which would result in a cancer risk estimate of 5´10–5. Although, this level allows for additional risk contributions from other chemicals, there would be no other apparent sources of cancer risk from site-related CoPCs on the final landfill cover. Crushed rock products that contain fines (e.g., D1, 1.5‑in.‑minus, and 3‑in.‑minus) should not be used as the final cover for ground surfaces at the KPC site if the arsenic concen­tration is greater than 700 mg/kg. This would be equivalent to an excess cancer risk of 8´10–5. A worker exposed to this amount of arsenic in rock products for 25 years could also be exposed to other site-related carcinogens (if any) at a risk equivalent to 2´10–5 before the worker’s cumulative risk would exceed the trigger level of 1´10–4 (i.e., 8´10–5 and 2´10–5 would be 1´10–4).

This gives ADEC the right to implement the terms and conditions of the institutional control. ADEC is essentially the agent for DNR. Bill Janes
9/18/2001 Update or Other Action Provided comments to EPA on draft Ward Cove natural recovery monitoring plan. Similarities and differences between the Sawmill Cove natural recovery monitoring and the proposed monitoring plan for Ward Cove. Both use a "weight of evidence" and an "adaptive management" approach, whereby decisisons will be based on a combination of factors such as sediment chemistry and benthic community analyses, and whereby the results from a monitoring event will help refine the subsequent monitoring event. Both divide the Area of Concern into strata by water depth and thickness of organic deposits. For Ward Cove neither SPI nor video/still photography is proposed. These are primary elements in the Sawmill Cove approach and in fact during the next event we may drop the benthic community analyses altogether and rely entirely on SPI. Could SPI be worked into the Ward Cove plan or are there reasons it is not being considered? Ward Cove will compare to reference stations: we decided this could not be done in Sitka easily so we dropped it. Ward Cove will use sediment toxicity bioassay tests. We decided not to rely on bioassays in Sitka because we believed the in-situ methods would be more definitive. There are a few differences in the statistics, but the indices that will be evaluated are similar. Ward Cove will rely on sediment conventional chemistry just as we did in Sitka. However, we dropped 4-methylphenol because once it was carbon-normalized it turned out to be a non-issue. Bill Janes
2/12/2002 Update or Other Action January 31 letter from Solid Waste to KPC modifying post-closure sampling parameters and frequency at the landfill. Letter in site file. Bill Janes

4/28/2005 Brownfield Inventory Identification of a site as part of the DEC's Brownfield Inventory does not automatically qualify a site for any specific brownfield benefits, liability protection, or funding.

John Carnahan

7/5/2005 Update or Other Action Solid Waste Program issues changes to the Dawson Point Landfill monitoring program per a request from KPC. Bill Janes
7/11/2005 Update or Other Action The 2004 Monitoring Report for Sediment Remediation in Ward Cove, Alaska, was recently completed by Exponent. At locations where new sand was placed in a thin layer on the bottom of Ward Cove a few years ago, toxicity to bottom dwelling species has decreased and overall species numbers and diversity have increased. The bottom dwelling community in these locations is now very similar to reference locations. Most of the natural recovery areas are not doing as well. Bill Janes
8/4/2005 Update or Other Action The Five-Year Review Report was recently completed by EPA. For the Marine unit, the remedial action is complete and progress is being made towards achieving remedial action objectives. No issues or follow-up actions were identified as a result of the five-year review process. The remedy is protective of human health and the environment; long-term monitoring will continue. For the Uplands unit, institutional controls (ICs) and Restrictive Covenants remain in effect. These ICs and Restrictive Covenants remain effective and protective due to the responsible stewardship of Ketchikan Pulp Company and the Ketchikan Gateway Borough. Remaining issues include the need for recording easements and covenants on parcels of land in the pipeline corridor, recently acquired by the Borough, and future easements and covenants on approximately three acres of land managed by the Bureau of Land Management, to be transferred to the Ketchikan Gateway Borough. Bill Janes
5/25/2006 Update or Other Action Received acknowledgment that Tract 3019 has been sold to Power Systems & Supplies of Alaska LLC. The buyer assumes the environmental protection easement and declaration of restrictive covenants - record #206-001876-0. Evonne Reese

6/6/2007 Update or Other Action Renniassance Ketchikan group proposes a 425 foot utilities trench between the former sawmill and inactive Gateway Forest Products veneer mill. Sampling must meet the requirements of the IC Plan. Bill Janes
2/4/2008 Update or Other Action The 2007 Ward Cove sediment remediation monitoring report received. Conditions throughout the Ward Cove AOC have improved since the RI/FS was conducted in 1996−1997. In addition, most conditions showed continual improvement between 2004 and 2007. Thin layer placement (TLP) has been successful in eliminating sediment toxicity and stimulating colonization of benthic macroinvertebrate species such that diverse communities comprising multiple taxa now inhabit most parts of the TLP areas, and exhibit enhanced characteristics beyond those of the reference areas. In addition, recovery is proceeding in the natural recovery areas, such that two of those areas have reduced sediment toxicity and benthic community characteristics similar to the reference areas. Bill Janes
1/21/2010 Update or Other Action Certificate of Completion letter sent by EPA to KPC for the Marine Operable Unit. The letter states that all consent decree requirements have been performed and the Remedial Action Objectives have been achieved.
