EPA Soon Begins Cleanup at Candy's Auto Radiator Service; Meeting April 23, 7 P.M.

Apr 17, 2001, 01:00 ET from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

    CHICAGO, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
 Region 5 soon will begin removing lead-contaminated soil from the Norwood
 Radiator site, known locally as Candy's Auto Radiator Service, in Norwood,
 Ohio.  A meeting to explain the project and answer community questions will be
 held Monday, April 23, 7 p.m., at Norwood High School, 2020 Sherman Ave.  Work
 is tentatively set to begin at the site in late April or early May.
     Ohio EPA recently requested federal assistance with the cleanup at 5111
 Globe Ave., along with several adjacent properties.  The site has been an auto
 repair shop since 1962.  Candy's operators routinely disposed of small amounts
 of liquid and solid waste in a yard behind the shop.  Over time, runoff from
 the site has contaminated some neighboring properties.
     The cleanup, supervised by a Cincinnati-based Superfund emergency response
 team, will include excavation of lead contaminated soil and debris, with
 off-site disposal at an EPA-approved hazardous waste landfill.  The site will
 then be backfilled with clean topsoil and new vegetation.  The entire project
 should be completed by early June.
     For more information or a fact sheet about the project, call community
 involvement coordinator Rafael P. Gonzalez, (800) 621-8431, Ext. 60269,
 e-mail: gonzalez.rafaelp@epa.gov , or on-scene coordinator Steve Renninger,
 (513) 569-7539, e-mail: renninger.steven@epa.gov .
