(1/13/06) On Jan. 13, 2006 EPA posted results from samples taken at D.L. Mud Inc., an NPL site in Vermillion Parish, La. On Oct. 1, 2005, EPA collected two shallow ground water samples from monitoring wells at this site and compared the results to data collected for the Five-Year Review for the site completed in September 2003. The concentrations of metals detected in the October 2005 samples were comparable to the concentrations of metals reported in the Five-Year Review. Therefore, EPA concludes that the remedy implemented at the site was not affected by Hurricanes Katrina or Rita. EPA will continue to monitor the site according to the site operation and maintenance monitoring plan.
