From 1975 to 1986, GE used an 1800 foot long pipeline to convey treated wastewater from metal finishing operations at the 41 Woodford Ave plant, beneath Woodford Ave and Woodland Street to a series of surface impoundments located next to the Quinnipiac River. Sludge from the surface impoundments was excavated in 1989. GE has been conducting investigations and closure activities under the direction of CTDEEP. In 2014, GE prepared a Remedial Action Plan (RAP), which detailed plans to conduct in-situ stabilization, installation of a two foot soil cap over the stabilized area, restoration of a vegetative cover, and the use of an Environmental Land Use Restriction for remediating cadmium contaminated soils in the former lagoon area. The plan was acceptable to CTDEEP, and the RAP was public noticed in the summer of 2014, with only a few minor comments received. In June 2014, the facility achieved the Remedy Selection CA 400 corrective action milestone.
