It seems not to be working since the Superfund site near my old home that took the life of my aunt among others looks to have just pulled the plug on the whole mess and just dumped all the toxic waste into the Niagara River.


Sevenson was the contractor doing the cleanup of the cleanup and claims to have buried the waste deeper but then they go on to say they flushed it out of storm sewers and the rest likely all into the aquifer being only 0.3 miles (1584 feet) from the Niagara River in Niagara Falls, NY.


And remember that according to WHO, Dioxins are naturally all around us, well they are now thanks to Superfund contractors like Sevenson and the Elias in Niagara Falls. Thanks to TEPCO and Fukushima all the man made Plutonium you have around is also naturally occurring! ;)


World Health Organization seems to normalize and downplay the severity of this and suggest this compound is naturally occurring, it is not. This following quote from them is hugely misleading:


"Due to the omnipresence of dioxins, all people have background exposure, which is not expected to affect human health. However, due to the highly toxic potential of this class of compounds, efforts need to be undertaken to reduce current background exposure."

Dioxins are all man made and none of them existed until someone decided to synthesize them.

NPL Site Narrative for Love Canal

LOVE CANAL

Niagara Falls, New York

Federal Register Notice: September 08, 1983

Conditions at listing (October 1981): Love Canal is a 16-acre landfill in the southeast corner of the City of Niagara Falls, New York, about 0.3 mile north of the Niagara River. In the 1890s, a canal was excavated to provide hydroelectric power. Instead, it was later used by Hooker Electrochemical for disposal of over 21,000 tons of various chemical wastes. Dumping ceased in 1952, and in 1953 the disposal area was covered and deeded to the Niagara Falls Board of Education. Extensive development occurred near the site, including construction of an elementary school and numerous homes.

Problems with odors and residues, first reported at the site during the 1960s, increased in the 1970s as the water table rose, bringing contaminated ground water to the surface. Studies indicate that numerous toxic chemicals have migrated into surrounding areas. Run-off drains into the Niagara River at a point 2.8 miles upstream of the intake tunnels for Niagara Falls' water treatment plant, which serves about 77,000 people. At this discharge point, the river sediment has also become contaminated.

Between 1977 and 1980, New York State and the Federal government spent about $45 million at the site: $30 million for relocation of residents and health testing, $11 million for environmental studies, and $4 million for a demonstration grant (under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act) to build a leachate collection and treatment system.

Status (July 1983): A study completed in 1982 recommended construction of a slurry wall and cap to contain ground water in the site as the long-term solution.

In July 1982, EPA awarded a $6,995,000 Cooperative Agreement to New York for (1) construction of a slurry wall and cap, (2) four feasibility studies, and (3) a long-term monitoring study to determine seasonal variations in ground water levels and leaching. In September 1982, $892,800 was added to (1) demolish the school, (2) install a synthetic membrane over a temporary clay cap, and (3) erect a fence. Construction of the slurry wall and cap is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 1983, and the feasibility studies in the third quarter of 1983.

The Department of Justice, on behalf of EPA, has brought a Federal civil action seeking injunctive relief against parties potentially responsible for wastes associated with the site.

2004 News Releases

EPA Removes Love Canal from Superfund List

Release Date: 09/30/2004

Contact Information:

(#04152) New York, NY -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today finalized its decision to remove the Love Canal site in Niagara County from the Superfund National Priorities List (NPL). All cleanup work at the site has been completed, and follow up monitoring conducted over the past 15 years and continuing today confirms that the cleanup goals have been reached. Through a series of plans, EPA, together with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, contained and secured the wastes already disposed of in the canal so that they are no longer leaking into surrounding soils and groundwater and also revitalized properties in the neighborhood surrounding the canal.

"Love Canal taught us that we needed a mechanism to address abandoned hazardous waste sites, especially those that posed a threat to people's health," said Jane M. Kenny, EPA's Regional Administrator. "Decades later, Love Canal has become a symbol of our success under Superfund. It is once again a thriving community."

The 70-acre Love Canal site encompasses a hazardous waste landfill where chemical waste products were disposed of from 1942-1952. In 1953, the original 16-acre hazardous waste landfill was covered, and a school and more than 200 homes were built nearby. Residents reported odors and residues as early as the 1960s; studies in the 1970s showed that numerous toxic chemicals were migrating from the landfill and contaminating nearby waterways. In 1978, Governor Hugh Carey ordered the original purchase of resident's homes surrounding the canal. In 1978 and 1980, President Jimmy Carter declared two separate environmental emergencies and, as a result, approximately 950 families were evacuated from a 10-block area surrounding the canal. The emergency declaration area included neighborhoods adjacent to the site covering 350 acres. In 1980, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCA), also known as Superfund, which addresses abandoned hazardous waste sites, was passed largely due to the problems at Love Canal.

Today, the area known as Love Canal is once again a flourishing community. Forty acres are covered by a synthetic liner and clay cap and surrounded by a barrier drainage system. Contamination from the site is also controlled by a leachate collection and treatment facility. Neighborhoods to the west and north of the canal have been revitalized, with more than 200 formerly boarded-up homes renovated and sold to new owners, and 10 newly-constructed apartment buildings. The area east of the canal has also been sold for light industrial and commercial redevelopment.

The Love Canal site will continue to be monitored and remain eligible for cleanup work in the unlikely event that a change in site conditions should warrant such an action.

The deletion of Love Canal makes a total of three sites in Niagara County that have been deleted from the NPL. Last month the Niagara County Refuse site and the 102nd Street Landfill were removed from the list.

Love Canal Superfund Site
Home > Remediation Projects > Love Canal Superfund Site
Niagara Falls, New York

Date of Execution: 1979

Significant Project Features:

Multiple contacts awarded on a competitive bid basis over a ten (10) year period.

Construction of the first permanent treatment facility at a Superfund site and one (1) year Operation and Maintenance contract.

Mechanically and hydraulically cleaned 12 miles of storm sewer ranging in diameter from 8 inch to 84 inche.

Operation of a bypass pumping system to maintain normal sewer flow rates during cleaning and collection operations.

Installation of a 5,000 lf leachate collection system.

Construction and closure of a secure landfill.

Construction of a 46 acre cap.

Collection, handling and treatment of contaminated groundwater.

History and Location of Project

North and Central Sectors Containment

In 1979, President Jimmy Carter declared the Love Canal Site a Federal Disaster Area and ordered the evacuation of hundreds of families. Since that date, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has administered a comprehensive site remediation plan.

This early contract involved the implementation of waste containment measures as well as preliminary site securement.

Description of Work

Construction activities included:

Installation of a leachate collection system having 5,000 lineal feet of perforated sub-drain adjacent to or within waste disposal area. Trench depths ranged from 12 feet to 22 feet.

Installation of leachate collection system components, including manholes, pump chambers, a 30,000 gallon holding tank and force mains to a depth of 30 feet.

Installation of 30 French drains into the landfill wastes to promote dewatering of the site. This work item was the most hazardous operation of the project and involved the excavation, handling, and on-site disposal of extremely high concentrations of hazardous wastes.

Construction of an impermeable clay cap having permeability no grater than 10-7 cm/sec. Approximately 65,000 cy of clay were handled during this operation.

Construction and maintenance of contaminant migration and decontamination facilities.

Installation of monitoring instrumentation, including lysemeters, within the landfill waste.

Collection, handling, and treatment of 3,000,000 gallons of heavily contaminated groundwater.

Excavation and disposal within the leachate containment system of drummed and loose hazardous wastes found to be buried outside of the containment system during construction.

Construction and revision of storm and sanitary sewers adjacent to the Love Canal Site.

This project was the first remedial action at the Love Canal Site performed under the supervision of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

Permanent Leachate Treatment Facility

The Love Canal Leachate Treatment Facility was an emergency design/build project for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Working in conjunction with Calgon Corporation of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Clucas Plumbing Corporation of Tonawanda, New York, Sevenson spearheaded the design and construction of this 4,100 S.F. facility at a cost of $2,000,000. The entire project, from the conceptual design phase through to functional operation, was completed in 89 days. Leachate collected from the subsurface drainage system is pumped to the treatment facility into a fiberglass holding tank and then through a rectangular clarifier. Sludge is removed in the clarifier and transferred to storage tanks in the facility. The liquids remaining in the clarifier are pumped through two activated carbon filters which were furnished by Calgon. Sampling ports upstream, between and downstream of the carbon filters, permit monitoring the effectiveness of the filtering operation. Due to the corrosive nature of the leachate, air operated rubber diaphragm pumps powered by two air compressors were selected to pump the leachate throughout the facility.

In addition to the treatment area, the facility also includes an office area and bathroom.

Love Canal Permanent Leachate Treatment Facility Operations and Maintenance Contract

Upon completion of the Leachate Treatment Facility at the Love Canal, Sevenson was awarded a one-year operations and maintenance contract. The responsibilities under this contract included the following:

Maintenance of all equipment within the leachate treatment facility as well as the pumps, tanks, and monitoring equipment in the leachate collection system.

Monitoring of leachate levels in the collection system to determine the necessity for plant operation.

Operation of all equipment in the treatment plan.

Sludge collection and removal.

Taking leachate samples at 5,000 gallon intervals for analysis.

Development and implementation of a safety plan and purchase of necessary safety equipment.

Monitoring of carbon quality and degradation, and performing carbon change operations.

General building and site house-keeping.

Generation of monthly reports concerning flow quantities and lab analysis for the Department of Environmental Conservation.

Clean Water Exclusion System

This project involved the expansion of the site containment system. Additional remedial measures to prevent the infiltration of clean water into the contamination zone were implemented. Also, problems of off-site migration of contaminated run-off and leachate from previously unidentified areas were addressed.

Construction activities included:

Clean and plug 13,000 L.F. of on-site sanitary and storm sewer pipe lines.

Construction of concrete cut-off walls at seven (7) locations where on-site storm and sanitary lines exit the site.

Expanding the existing clay cap using approximately 85,000 C.Y. of select fill.

Installation of 2.1 million square feet of 40 mil HPDE liner over the expanded cap.

Prior to liner installation, video testing was performed on the existing leachate collection system to identify any breaks or leaks.

Place 80,000 C.Y. of select fill material over the synthetic membrane.

Modify site drainage to accommodate new contours of expanded cap.

Regrade, topsoil, and seed the site.

All work was conducted under a strict Health and Safety Plan written and implemented by Sevenson.

Storm and Sanitary Sewers Sediment Removal

Once the Love Canal site was secured and the concerns over additional off-site migration of contaminants, as well as the infiltration of clean water coming into contact with the waste contained on-site, were eliminated, remediation could begin on the wastes which had migrated off-site. The first project to do so was the storm and sanitary sewers sediment removal action. The project requirements included:

Mechanical and hydraulic cleaning of 12 miles of storm and sanitary sewer lines ranging in size from 8" to 84" in diameter;

Construction and operation of a central dewatering facility consisting of primary and secondary settling tanks, pumps, and multi-media filtration equipment. The facility was connected into the permanent leachate treatment facility;

Transportation of collected sewer sediments to the dewatering facility for processing;

Operate a by-pass pumping system to maintain normal sewer flow rate during cleaning and collection operations.

This project was complete per specifications on time and with estimated costs under a stringent health and safety plan developed and implemented by Sevenson.

Black and Bergholtz Creek Remediation

This project addressed contamination found in the sediments of Love Canal area creeks. The project was divided into two phases. Phase I involved the construction of a Dewatering/Containment Facility (DCF), a six-acre, double-lined RCRA landfill. Phase II involved construction of a Decontamination Drum Storage Facility (DDSF); excavation and disposal of creek sediments; cleaning storm sewers; rehabilitation of sanitary sewers; and rehabilitation of the site dewatering facility.

Specific activities included the following:

PHASE I -

Dewatering and Containment Facility

Site work and clearing.

Utilities abandonment, relocation, and modification.

Construction of the DCF, including concrete work; electrical and mechanical systems; clay and synthetic liners; leak detection and leachate collection systems; pump stations, force mains, underdrains, access roads, and related work.

- Placement of contaminated debris in the DCF.

RCRA closure of DCF (impermeable cap).

PHASE II -

Decontamination and Drums Storage Facility

Construction of a 60 ft by 160 ft drum handling and storage building.

Construction of access roads, site utilities, and decontamination facilities.

Construction of an initial dewatering facility near creeks.

Construction of cofferdams at various points during remediation and temporary rerouting creek.

Excavate, transport and dewater contaminated creek sediments.

Clean and retrofit sanitary sewers.

Maintain and retrofit dewatering facility.

All work was performed under a stringent health and safety plan written and implemented by Sevenson.

Health and Safety Overview:

Unique Characteristics: Love Canal was a federal disaster area which required the evacuation of hundreds of families. As the work was highly visible and in a former residential area, special care had to be taken to prevent the contaminated particulates, and vapors from migrating off site. Realtime and low volume monitoring were performed continuously in work areas and around the site perimeter to ensure the safety of workers and the neighboring community.

Health and Safety Measures: Workers were required to utilize personnel protective equipment ranging from Modified Level D to Level B depending on their assigned task. Pre and post employment medical exams were given to ensure the effectiveness of Sevenson's Health and Safety program.

Health and Safety Staff: Dr. Paul Hitcho developed and managed the Health and Safety program for the site. One lead safety officer and 4 technicians were responsible for determining personal protective equipment. Performing realtime air monitoring, completing daily reports, and conducting daily safety meetings.

How 40-Hour Training Was Implemented: Sevenson performed in-house training for all company employees. Union personnel were provided training through the hall.

Six Arraigned on Tax Conspiracy in a Corporate Bonus Scheme Based in Western New York

Six officials of an Upstate New York firm were arraigned yesterday before Magistrate Judge Leslie G. Foschio. On March 21, a federal grand jury in the Western District of New York indicted the six defendants, Philip R. DeLuca, Alfred R. LaGreca, Frank A. Fracassi, Michael A. Elia, Laurence A Elia and Richard A. Elia, on tax charges, including conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

According to the superseding indictment, between the late 1990s and at least April 2007, the defendants were officers of Sevenson Environmental Services Inc., a Subchapter S corporation (a corporation treated like a partnership for tax purposes) located in Niagara Falls, N.Y., that was involved in remediation of sites contaminated with hazardous waste. During that time, the defendants allegedly conspired to defraud the IRS by developing and managing a scheme whereby they and other Sevenson employees received bonus compensation that was not reported to the IRS.

The superseding indictment also alleges that this compensation permitted certain Sevenson employees to obtain goods and services that were paid for by the corporation, but not reported to the IRS. In order to facilitate Sevenson's payment for these goods and services, it is alleged that the defendants caused documents to be fabricated, invoices to be falsified and false individual income tax returns to be filed. From the late 1990s through at least April 2007, Sevenson awarded at least 23 employees a total of approximately $1 million in unreported, non-cash bonuses.

If convicted, each defendant faces a potential maximum of five years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000 on the conspiracy charge.

An indictment merely alleges that a crime has been committed, and a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

This case was investigated by the IRS-Criminal Investigation and is being prosecuted by Tax Division Trial Attorneys Shawn Noud, Robert Kennedy, and Erin Pulice.

Sevenson Environmental Services Inc. Agrees to Pay $2.72 Million to Settle Claims of Alleged Bid-Rigging and Kickbacks

Sevenson Environmental Services Inc., an environmental remediation firm based in Niagara Falls, New York, has agreed to pay more than $2.72 million to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act and the Anti-Kickback Act by accepting kickbacks, rigging bids and passing inflated charges to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in connection with work performed at the Federal Creosote Superfund Site in Manville, New Jersey, the Department of Justice announced today. Sevenson was the prime contractor responsible for the cleanup of the Federal Creosote Site, which was funded by the EPA.

"The integrity of the public procurement process is severely undermined when federal contractors engage in anticompetitive contracting practices for their own personal gain," said Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General August E. Flentje for the Department of Justice's Civil Division. "The Department of Justice will hold those accountable who abuse their positions at the public's expense."

"EPA is vigilant to ensure that the type of fraud perpetrated by Sevenson employees at Federal Creosote is not tolerated and that federal funds are recovered" said EPA Regional Administrator Judith A. Enck.

The settlement announced today resolves allegations that Sevenson solicited and accepted more than $1.6 million in kickbacks from six companies in exchange for the award of subcontracts for work at the Federal Creosote Site. It also resolves allegations that Sevenson conspired with the subcontractors to pass the majority of those kickbacks to the EPA and that it conspired with one subcontractor to pass to the EPA additional inflated charges for soil disposal.

This case was handled by the Civil Division's Commercial Litigation Branch, with assistance from the New York Field Office of the department's Antitrust Division, the EPA Region 2, the EPA's Office of the General Counsel and the Kansas City District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The claims resolved by this settlement are allegations only, and there has been no determination of liability.

Point is Sevenson are well known as being criminals and this page lists the numerous actions The US DOJ has brought against Sevenson and the Elias family who runs the business:


http://search.justice.g....=justice&query=SEVENSON


In the end of it and from the Sevenson web site it says this cleanup was done wrong, they essentially tossed the material around and made a mess and flushed the rest into the storm drains, etc. I see no mention of them destroying or making non toxic the Dioxin and other wastes there, just the fact they moved some of it to a smaller section of the parcel of land away from the homes that remain there.


So this has a number of other problems that will remain:


You took a large amount of this material that was captivated there and then sent it on its way into the Niagara River to go someplace else. Point is your overall goal is NOT to incinerate and destroy it but to move it around.

You sequestered what was left that you can scrape up, leaving much of it still in place, and then moved some of it to a small area you sectioned off.

This leaves the area with the homes still with toxic material there.

That and given this went on since April 28, 1953 when Hooker passed the land on to City of Niagara Falls, meaning this waste was there since then, the whole area and the homes that remain will be impregnated with this poison. Now you have opened this area up including some of those homes that remain and claim they are safe, they are not.

Homes built there, many with forced hot air furnaces in the basement, will have distributed this poison throughout the inside of the home, it will be in wallboard and other porous surfaces such as wood, etc. It will have soaked into concrete and brick and other stone products such as cinder block in the cellars, etc. from the inside and outside of the home.

There is NO way you can live in this area or these homes even today and nothing or little has been done to render this poison non toxic.

Those doing this work again are looking to be a collection of repeat felons and losers who'd do anything for money and this is another example of who not to hire and how not to do something.

You can't trust these contractors or the local government officials and the law there.

People like The Elias and Sevenson made this mess to begin with.

From Sevenson's site - "Mechanical and hydraulic cleaning of 12 miles of storm and sanitary sewer lines ranging in size from 8" to 84" in diameter;"

So the plan is to put this sewer, both of them, back into service, which is not possible since they will never be clean.

That and you have creeks and other forms of open and moving water all over this area of course, and this process just made the mess worse and not better.



Given statements like this who is to trust these felons and their want to make decisions about safety, techniques, and how to remediate this site?

You let SEVENSON decide all this? Wow....

"All work was performed under a stringent health and safety plan written and implemented by Sevenson."

"Development and implementation of a safety plan and purchase of necessary safety equipment."

"Prior to liner installation, video testing was performed on the existing leachate collection system to identify any breaks or leaks."


The overall goal here was to make $2,000,000.00 in 89 days and do as little as possible doing so.


"Spearheading" the work by having another Smoking Joe "Smash And Grab" to pack the money in the bank.
