[ARCHIVED] Haviland Complex Superfund Cleanup Five Year Review Public Notice

Haviland Complex Superfund Cleanup Five Year Review Public Notice

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting its fifth five-year review of the implemented cleanup plan at the Haviland Complex Superfund site, located at Route 9G and Haviland Road in the Town of Hyde Park, New York. This review seeks to confirm that the implemented cleanup plan of natural attenuation of groundwater, continues to protect human health and the environment. Natural attenuation is the natural processes to decrease concentrations of contaminants in the groundwater. The last five-year review was conducted in May 2017. A summary of the review and an evaluation of the protectiveness of the implemented cleanup plan will be included in the five-year review report. 

What is a Five-Year Review?

The purpose of a five-year review is to ensure that implemented cleanup plans at Superfund sites function as intended and continue to be protective of human health and the environment. These regular reviews, which are required by federal law when contaminants remain at a site, include:

  • inspecting the site and cleanup technologies;
  • reviewing monitoring data, operating data, and maintenance records; and,
  • determining if any new regulatory requirements have been established since EPA’s original cleanup decision was finalized.

When will the Five-Year Review Report be available? 

It is anticipated that the five-year review report will be available at the website noted below by December 2021.

There are several ways to review information on this site.
