To request copies of administrative record documents, an electronic order form is available.

This November 10, 2011 administrative record (AR) file contains the documents the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has used to select the removal activities appropriate to the Northeast Church Rock (NECR) Mine Superfund site. Specifically, this AR supports the September 29, 2011 Non-Time Critical Action Memorandum for the cleanup of the NECR Mine in McKinley County, New Mexico (Pinedale Chapter, Navajo Nation). This November 10, 2011 Update #1 AR updates the June 11, 2009 Northeast Church Rock Mine Engineering Evaluation/Cost Analysis (EE/CA) Removal AR. Both the documents in the update and the original AR are presented in DVD format. The Update #1 AR includes public comments on the EE/CA and EPA’s responses to those comments as an attachment to the Action Memorandum.
