Public Notice - Cook Inlet Pipe Line Company’s Drift River Terminal Facility
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) invites your comments on its proposal for no further cleanup action at the Cook Inlet Pipe Line Company’s (the Company’s) Drift River Terminal facility. The facility is located near Kenai, about 90 miles southwest of Anchorage, AK. Comments must be submitted in writing by October 18, 2005, to Linda Meyer, EPA Project Manager, U.S. EPA, 1200 Sixth Avenue, Suite 900, WCM-121, Seattle, WA 98101. You can also email comments to email@example.com.
This facility has been used for temporary storage of crude oil for almost 40 years. In 1997, EPA issued an order to the Company to investigate three potentially contaminated Solid Waste Management Units at the Drift River Terminal. The Company found contamination at one of the sites and as a result in 2002 and 2003 removed petroleum-contaminated soil, treated or disposed of the soil, and restored groundwater to drinking water standards. EPA believes that no further action is necessary to address the environmental impacts at the Drift River Terminal.
