Regional Beede Waste Oil Site Homepage
National Beede Waste Oil Site Progress Profile

The nearly 41-acre Beede Site is located in a residential Plaistow, NH, neighborhood that is served entirely by private potable water supply wells. The facility operated from the 1920s through August 1994 as a waste oil storage and recycling facility. The Site is contaminated primarily with waste oil that seeped into the ground from a variety of sources, including a former unlined lagoon, underground storage tanks, above ground storage tanks, and numerous drums located throughout the property. The Site was added to the NPL in December 1996. The principal threats to human health and the environment are direct contact and ingestion of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and lead in shallow soil, ingestion of VOCs in the deep soil, and ingestion of VOCs in the groundwater. Low-level threats to human health are posed by exposure to PCBs and PAHs in a very limited area of Kelley Brook. Low-level threats to ecological receptors are posed by exposure to VOCs and PAHs in the surface waters of Kelley Brook.

Cleanup Approach
[Back to Top]

Following several initial response actions at the Site, the final cleanup will be addressed in four phases (as outlined in the 2004 Record of Decision (ROD): groundwater management of migration; landfill and sediment excavation; thermally enhanced soil vapor extraction of deep soils; and excavation of the shallow soils. Completion of the final phase of the overall cleanup approach (i.e., shallow soil excavation) is presently planned to occur in December 2016.

Environmental Progress
[Back to Top]

The EPA issued a Record of Decision (ROD) for the Site in January 2004. The cleanup plan selected in the 2004 ROD calls for: 1) excavation and off-site disposal of contaminated shallow soil, landfill and sediment from Kelley Brook, and numerous soil piles; 2) treatment of contaminated deep soil using thermally enhanced soil vapor extraction technology; 3) groundwater extraction and treatment; 4) land use restrictions; 5) long-term monitoring of groundwater, surface water and sediment.

Current Site Status
[Back to Top]

A Remedial Design and Remedial Action Consent Decree was entered by the court in July 2008. The Performing Settling Defendants have been conducting pre-design and design activities since 2008. A 30% Remedial Design Report for the entire remedy was submitted to the EPA in December 2010. A 100% Remedial Design Report for the MOM component (groundwater pump and treat) of the remedy was approved in September 2012. The three (3) other design phases are planned for over the next several years. Construction of the MOM component of the remedy started in December 2012 and is planned for completion in Summer 2013. Operation of the MOM system is expected to continue until 2027 (15 years of operation). Off-site trucking of about 565 truck loads of contaminated soil started in late February 2013.
