GLRPPR Sector Resource: Research at Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge

Title:
Research at Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge

Abstract:
HWRIC began supporting investigations into the contamination problems at Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge in 1988, shortly after the refuge was placed on the Superfund National Priorities List. The Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) to characterize the site and propose cleanup strategies was completed in 1989. The RI/FS listed the Area 9 Landfill (or Sangamo Landfill), the site of a former transformer reclamation operation, as the most contaminated site and the first scheduled for cleanup. Center support for investigations at the refuge provides an opportunity to follow a Superfund cleanup and collect information about environmental contamination before, during, and after the remediation. Cleanup has not yet begun but is planned for the near future. Descriptions of HWRIC-funded research at the refuge follows. Results of completed projects have been published in the Center's Research Report series.
