TriAD performed a RCRA Facility Investigation and implemented interim remedial actions at this former secondary lead smelter site. During the RFI, TriAD augmented traditional soil sampling and analysis with X-ray fluorescence (XRF) to help define the limits of lead in soil. A site-specific lead clean-up standard was established through negotiations with state regulators. Two remedial technologies were used; phytoremediation using native grasses at an off-site area that had been impacted by lead-containing, flood-borne sediment, and building decontamination/demolition followed by capping in the on-site areas. These interim actions were then approved as final remedies by the Tennessee Division of Solid Waste Management, with ongoing post-closure monitoring.
