The remedial actions required for the Site OU-1 include surface soil containment, a passive soil vapor extraction system with targeted hot spot soil removal, groundwater treatment, an environmental covenant placed on the deed restricting the use of the property, and a Long-Term Stewardship (LTS) Plan for the Site.
