EPA and Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) have completed the fifth five-year review on the Idaho Pole Company (IPC) Superfund site.

The five-year review is a regular checkup on a Superfund site to ensure that cleanup decisions continue to protect people and the environment.

The review has determined that the remedy currently protects human health and the environment because institutional controls are in place such as a deed restriction on IPC property and a controlled groundwater area that restricts potable use of the groundwater.

In order to be protective in the long term, the following actions are needed:
  • install and sample additional wells in the downgradient portion of the groundwater plume
  • modify the remedy to address residual source area contamination
  • revise the site operation and maintenance plan to identify a formal schedule for inspection and how any identified deficiencies will be addressed.

The meeting will take place Thursday, December 3. It starts at 6:30 PM.
