We want to hear from you!

The following documents are available for review and comment:

  • Five-year periodic review: We review monitoring data to make sure the cleanup methods are working. This review is for cleanup actions for the groundwater under the property.

Recent cleanup actions

GE has tried three different methods to cleanup trichloroethylene (TCE) and other contamination in the groundwater under the property.  Most recently in 2019, GE injected zero valent iron particles (ISCR) mixed with organic plant material into the contaminated groundwater.  This treatment has been slow to work in some areas and is not yet working in other areas.

We will continue to review the monitoring results and are considering other cleanup methods. If a new method is needed, we will hold a public comment period. GE still plans to use ICSR to clean up contaminated groundwater that has moved off the property.
