Document: ACAT FOIA Repository 44, Date Received July 2023
Document Title: Communications between EPA Region 10 and USACE regarding ACAT and Tribal concerns
Environmental Protection Agency Region 10; US Army Corps of Engineers; Alaska Community Action on Toxics
A letter from the EPA Region 10 Administrator to the Alaska district commander of the US Army Corps of Engineers asking questions based on ACAT's concerns about the extent of clean up and future monitoring at Gambell and the Northeast Cape, the response from the USACE, and the letter from ACAT to the EPA detailing the concerns. The EPA letter mentions that EPA's 2002 decision not to list Gambell on the NPL depended on USACE's planned remediation since the evaluation and cleanup under NPL would not be substantially different from that under FUDS. USACE states that, with the exception of two issues to be addressed in 2010 and 2011 and long-term drinking water contamination at one site that will not be addressed, Gambell is considered fully remediated.
