The Valley Pike VOCs site, located in Riverside, Ohio, is a mixed industrial and residential site where groundwater contaminated with PCE and TCE was discovered in 2013. The site was added to the National Priorities List on September 9, 2016. U.S. EPA is coordinating with the Ohio EPA to oversee investigations and responses to the contamination at the site by Mullins Rubber Products Inc. in accordance with a 2016 administrative order on consent. As part of the 2016 agreement, Mullins implemented a pilot-scale soil vapor extraction (SVE) system aimed at reducing soil contaminants that affect the groundwater and produce soil gas that in some instances is rising as vapors into residential and commercial structures. Pilot test activities were completed in March 2016. The SVE system remains in continuous operation following completion of the pilot test to address residual source-area VOCs while full-scale SVE system design and installation is undertaken. The pilot system was expanded to include two additional recovery wells in January 2017. The SVE system has recovered over 574 lbs of VOCs. http://semspub.epa.gov/src/document/05/940487 For more details, see the 2016 Full Scale Soil Vapor Extraction System Design and Work Plan at http://semspub.epa.gov/src/document/05/935048.
