August

2013
 
The
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
Chemical
 
site
 
is
 
a
 
former
 
pesticide
 
formulating
 
facility
 
located
 
in
 
the
 
Louisville
 
Industrial
 
Park
 
at
 
1391
 
Dixie
 
Highway
 
in
 
Louisville,
 
Ky.
 
The
 
site,
 
located
 
on
 
a
 
29
acre
 
property
 
in
 
the
 
Park
 
Hill
 
neighborhood,
 
operated
 
from
 
the
 
1930s
 
to
 
the
 
1950s
 
and
 
handled
 
pesticides
 
such
 
as
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
40,
 
DDT,
 
Dieldrin,
 
and
 
Lindane.
 
Pesticides
 
were
 
found
 
in
 
soil
 
on
 
the
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
property
 
in
 
2010
 
and
 
2011.
 
Also,
 
arsenic,
 
lead,
 
and
 
polycyclic
 
aromatic
 
hydrocarbons
 
(PAHs)
 
were
 
found
 
in
 
soil
 
on
 
the
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
property.
 
In
 
2012
2013,
 
the
 
U.S.
 
Environmental
 
Protection
 
Agency
 
(EPA)
 
and
 
the
 
Kentucky
 
Department
 
for
 
Environmental
 
Protection
 
(KDEP)
 
collected
 
soil
 
samples
 
at
 
77
 
residential
 
properties
 
located
 
immediately
 
adjacent
 
to
 
the
 
site.
 
Based
 
on
 
the
 
soil
 
samples
 
collected
 
at
 
the
 
residential
 
properties,
 
EPA
 
and
 
KDEP
 
will
 
be
 
digging
 
up
 
soil
 
on
 
up
 
to
 
77
 
properties
 
because
 
the
 
presence
 
of 
 
pesticides,
 
PAHs,
 
lead
 
and
 
arsenic
 
were
 
found
 
in
 
the
 
yards.
 
EPA
 
and
 
KDEP
 
have
 
developed
 
a
 
plan
 
to
 
dig
 
up
 
the
 
top
 
1
foot
 
of 
 
soil
 
from
 
the
 
backyard
 
on
 
properties
 
where
 
the
 
owner
 
gives
 
access.
 
After
 
the
 
soil
 
is
 
removed,
 
clean
 
soil
 
will
 
be
 
placed
 
on
 
the
 
yards
 
and
 
covered
 
with
 
sod
 
or
 
seeded,
 
and
 
then
 
watered
 
for
 
three
 
weeks.
 
CMC
 
Inc.
 
of 
 
Nicholasville,
 
Ky.,
 
will
 
perform
 
the
 
cleanup
 
of 
 
residential
 
yards.
 
The
 
cleanup
 
will
 
begin
 
Aug.
 
19,
 
2013,
 
and
 
may
 
last
 
up
 
to
 
four
 
months
 
depending
 
on
 
the
 
weather.
 
KDEP
 
will
 
be
 
providing
 
vouchers
 
to
 
Grasshoppers,
 
a
 
local
 
food
 
distribution
 
company,
 
to
 
residents
 
for
 
properties
 
where
 
we
 
have
 
access,
 
regardless
 
of 
 
whether
 
or
 
not
 
a
 
garden
 
had
 
been
 
planted
 
before
 
the
 
soil
 
cleanup.
 
The
 
voucher
 
is
 
intended
 
to
 
give
 
residents
 
access
 
to
 
fresh
 
vegetables
 
that
 
they
 
may
 
have
 
been
 
able
 
to
 
grow
 
on
 
their
 
own
 
this
 
summer.

Frequently
 
Asked
 
Questions
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
Chemical
 
Residential
 
Cleanup
 
Why
 
are
 
the
 
U.S.
 
EPA
 
and
 
KDEP
 
cleaning
 
up
 
my
 
property?
 
Contamination
 
was
 
detected
 
in
 
the
 
samples
 
collected
 
on
 
the
 
77
 
properties
 
surrounding
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
Chemical
 
site
 
at
 
levels
 
above
 
either
 
the
 
EPA
 
Action/Removal
 
levels
 
or
 
KDEP
 
screening
 
levels.
 
Because
 
of 
 
this,
 
and
 
to
 
minimize
 
the
 
potential
 
for
 
residents
 
to
 
come
 
into
 
contact
 
with
 
these
 
chemicals,
 
EPA
 
and
 
KDEP
 
plan
 
to
 
dig
 
up
 
the
 
top
 
1
foot
 
of 
 
the
 
soil
 
to
 
reduce
 
potential
 
exposures
 
to
 
contamination
 
in
 
the
 
soil.
 
What
 
will
 
EPA
 
and
 
KDEP
 
be
 
doing
 
to
 
help
 
ensure
 
safety
 
for
 
my
 
friends,
 
my
 
family,
 
and
 
myself 
 
during
 
this
 
process?
 
EPA
 
and
 
KDEP
 
will
 
work
 
to
 
reduce
 
any
 
dust
 
created
 
while
 
digging
 
up
 
and
 
removing
 
contaminated
 
soil
 
and
 
while
 
placing
 
clean
 
soil
 
and
 
sod
 
back
 
on
 
the
 
yards.
 
EPA
 
and
 
KDEP
 
will
 
water
 
the
 
soil
 
to
 
keep
 
down
 
dust,
 
and
 
will
 
cover
 
any
 
stockpiled
 
soil
 
to
 
prevent
 
run
off 
 
and
 
to
 
limit
 
blowing
 
of 
 
dust
 
from
 
the
 
soil
 
stockpile.
 
As
 
a
 
precautionary
 
measure,
 
EPA
 
will
 
also
 
do
 
air
 
monitoring
 
at
 
the
 
beginning
 
of 
 
the
 
project
 
to
 
measure
 
any
 
dust
 
that
 
may
 
be
 
generated
 
and
 
may
 
take
 
additional
 
measures
 
to
 
prevent
 
dust
 
generation
 
if 
 
determined
 
necessary.
 
The
 
area
 
where
 
the
 
digging
 
occurs
 
in
 
each
 
yard
 
will
 
be
 
marked,
 
and
 
care
 
should
 
be
 
taken
 
to
 
avoid
 
these
 
areas
 
until
 
the
 
cleanup
 
is
 
complete.
 
What
 
can
 
I
 
do
 
to
 
help
 
ensure
 
safety
 
for
 
my
 
friends,
 
my
 
family,
 
and
 
myself 
 
during
 
this
 
process?
 
The
 
following
 
are
 
potential
 
safety
 
concerns
 
that
 
all
 
residents
 
should
 
be
 
aware
 
of 
 
during
 
this
 
process,
 
and
 
some
 
safety
 
suggestions
 
to
 
keep
 
in
 
mind
 
during
 
the
 
soil
 
cleanup.
 
Potential
 
hazards
 
include:
 
 
Slip/trip/fall
 
in
 
the
 
areas
 
where
 
digging
 
has
 
taken
 
place.
 
 
Heavy
 
equipment
 
and
 
trucks
 
will
 
be
 
operating
 
in
 
the
 
area.
 
Residents
 
are
 
advised
 
to
 
stay
 
away
 
from
 
equipment
 
and
 
trucks
 
that
 
will
 
be
 
working
 
in
 
the
 
area.
 
 
As
 
a
 
precautionary
 
measure,
 
residents
 
are
 
advised
 
to
 
stay
 
away
 
from
 
the
 
area
 
while
 
the
 
digging
 
occurs
 
to
 
lessen
 
the
 
potential
 
for
 
contact
 
with
 
any
 
contaminated
 
soil
 
or
 
any
 
associated
 
dust.
 
Simple
 
ways
 
to
 
prevent
 
dirt
 
and
 
dust
 
from
 
getting
 
into
 
your
 
home
 
while
 
cleanup
 
is
 
occurring
 
in
 
your
 
yard
 
or
 
your
 
next
 
door
 
neighbor’s
 
yard:

Thoroughly
 
wash
 
hands
 
before
 
eating,
 
especially
 
after
 
being
 
outside
 
for
 
long
 
periods
 
of 
 
time
 
during
 
the
 
cleanup
 
at
 
your
 
yard
 
or
 
your
 
next
 
door
 
neighbor’s
 
yard.
 
 
Keep
 
doors
 
and
 
windows
 
closed
 
while
 
the
 
soil
 
digging
 
is
 
underway.
 
 
Avoid,
 
if 
 
possible,
 
areas
 
where
 
exposed
 
dirt
 
is
 
present.
 
If 
 
you
 
cannot
 
avoid
 
walking
 
through
 
or
 
coming
 
into
 
contact
 
with
 
exposed
 
soil,
 
rinse
 
or
 
wash
 
off 
 
exposed
 
surfaces
 
(shoes).
 
This
 
also
 
holds
 
true
 
for
 
pets.
 
 
If 
 
you
 
believe
 
that
 
dust
 
from
 
the
 
soil
 
digging
 
has
 
gotten
 
within
 
your
 
home,
 
wipe
 
those
 
surfaces
 
with
 
a
 
cleaner/disposable
 
wipes
 
like
 
an
 
all
purpose
 
cleaner
 
or
 
furniture
 
polish
 
&
 
paper
 
towels.
 
Then
 
dispose
 
of 
 
cleaning
 
cloth
 
in
 
your
 
household
 
trash.
 
Why
 
doesn’t
 
EPA
 
or
 
KDEP
 
 just
 
buy
 
my
 
home
 
and
 
relocate
 
me
 
to
 
a
 
new
 
home?
 
Neither
 
EPA
 
nor
 
KDEP
 
has
 
the
 
legal
 
authority
 
to
 
purchase
 
property.
 
Where
 
is
 
the
 
money
 
coming
 
from
 
to
 
pay
 
for
 
this
 
cleanup?
 
Both
 
the
 
EPA
 
and
 
KDEP
 
receive
 
funds
 
into
 
their
 
annual
 
budgets
 
to
 
do
 
environmental
 
cleanup
 
work.
 
EPA
 
uses
 
federal
 
Superfund
 
dollars
 
and
 
KDEP
 
will
 
use
 
the
 
Hazardous
 
Waste
 
Management
 
Fund.
 
How
 
much
 
will
 
the
 
cleanup
 
cost?
 
The
 
cleanup
 
at
 
each
 
property
 
is
 
expected
 
to
 
cost
 
approximately
 
$25,000.
 
The
 
final
 
cost
 
will
 
depend
 
on
 
the
 
number
 
of 
 
properties
 
for
 
which
 
access
 
is
 
granted
 
to
 
do
 
the
 
cleanup.
 
Costs
 
are
 
expected
 
to
 
range
 
from
 
$1.1
 
million
 
to
 
$1.8
 
million.
 
What
 
is
 
being
 
done
 
to
 
clean
 
up
 
the
 
former
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
Chemical
 
property?
 
KDEP
 
is
 
currently
 
negotiating
 
with
 
potentially
 
responsible
 
parties
 
(PRPs)
 
and
 
will
 
seek
 
to
 
have
 
the
 
site
 
cleaned
 
up
 
at
 
the
 
earliest
 
possible
 
date.
 
If 
 
I
 
have
 
provided
 
access
 
for
 
my
 
property
 
to
 
be
 
cleaned
 
up,
 
will
 
my
 
property
 
be
 
re
contaminated
 
by
 
the
 
former
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
Chemical
 
site?
 
EPA
 
has
 
taken
 
interim
 
measures
 
(built
 
rock
 
check
 
dams,
 
geo
synthetic
 
barriers,
 
concrete
 
barriers)
 
to
 
prohibit
 
sediment
 
contamination
 
from
 
migrating
 
off 
site.
 
As
 
mentioned
 
above,
 
KDEP
 
is
 
working
 
with
 
potentially
 
responsible
 
parties
 
to
 
cleanup
 
the
 
site,
 
which
 
is
 
the
 
long
term
 
solution
 
to
 
the
 
potential
 
for
 
recontamination.
 
Will
 
all
 
properties
 
immediately
 
adjacent
 
to
 
the
 
former
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
Chemical
 
site
 
be
 
cleaned
 
up?
 
Only
 
those
 
properties
 
that
 
are
 
directly
 
adjacent
 
to
 
the
 
Black
 
Leaf 
 
Chemical
 
site,
 
and
 
where
 
the
 
property
 
owner
 
has
 
signed
 
an
 
access
 
agreement
 
allowing
 
EPA/KDEP
 
onto
 
the
 
property
 
to
 
remove
 
and
 
replace
 
soil
