Krejci Dump Site Public Notification Policy

Krejci Dump Site Clean-Up and Restoration Public Notification Policy (September 2005)

Numerous provisions have been included in the Krejci Site Consent Decree, Statement of Work, Remedial Design, and Remedial Action Work Plan to minimize the possibility of any off-site release of hazardous substances by air, water, or truck during the upcoming cleanup of the Krejci Dump site. These provisions include requirements for safe on-site cleanup operations, on-site surface water management features including sediment basins and straw bales, air monitoring, surface water and ground water monitoring, truck inspections, truck decontamination, and safe truck-driving procedures. In addition, the above-referenced documents contain numerous provisions to abate any off-site releases, to minimize the effects of any off-site releases, to clean up any off-site releases, and to prevent their reoccurrence.

It is very unlikely that any off-site releases will occur during the site cleanup that present a threat to off-site residents. However, the park will provide notice by phone or in-person of all known information concerning an off-site hazardous substance release (as well as off-site releases of airborne particulates) to all nearby residents who could be affected by an off-site release as soon as practicable after any such release. The park will also provide the same notice to any local resident who makes a request to the park to be informed about any such off-site release. In addition, the park will publish an incident report on its website in a timely manner that describes any such off-site release including the actions taken to abate the release, to minimize any effects of the release, to clean up the release, and to prevent the reoccurrence of the type of release.
