Project Summary:

This 46-acre parcel has historically been used for the placement of fill material, but was never developed until its purchase and subsequent development in 2002. Crown Enterprises Inc. of Warren, Michigan constructed and began operation of an intermodal transportation facility (warehouse) in 2003. Phase I and Phase II Investigations were conducted on the property on behalf of the City of Hammond, but no specific source-areas of contamination were identified due to the lack of historical development. Preliminary soil sampling found low concentrations of metals, VOCs, and SVOCs, but initial indications were that no constituents exceeded VRP default closure levels. Due to the lack of formal development of the property (no known source areas), a random sampling approach was devised to further evaluate site conditions, and to determine if surface and subsurface soils met VRP default nonresidential closure criteria. A combination of discrete and composite soil samples were submitted for laboratory analysis for metals, VOCs, SVOCs, and PCBs. All results were below VRP default closure levels, and the site was determined eligible for closure.
