ASTSWMO RCRA Subtitle C Corrective Action 2020 and The Road Ahead Webinar Series: Pharmacia & Upjohn Company LLC Site: Case Study
March 25, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The 78-acre Pharmacia & Upjohn Company LLC site had a long history of industrial use, including the manufacturing of products used in dyes and pigments, photographic chemicals, consumer products and pharmaceuticals, among others. For more than a decade, investigations and interim measures were performed under Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) 3013 and 3008(h) Administrative Orders. Prior to 1995, limited progress and minimal stakeholder outreach lead to community frustration, distrust and legal entanglements.
This presentation will focus on the stakeholder-driven approach to corrective measures that successfully turned public opinion around, achieved full community support for the remedy, and addressed site impacts in a sustainable manner. Remedy construction was deemed complete on September 30, 2019.
Today, all that remains is long-term operation, maintenance and monitoring of the final remedy. The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, following a 45-day public comment period, where public support and appreciation of the future vision of land-use for the property was heard, is on the verge issuing a Stewardship Permit, a form of RCRA Corrective Action post-remedy permit to ensure long-term stewardship at the property.
