RD604 - Supplemental Phase II Environmental Site Assessment Report – Central Virginia Training Center, 521 Colony Road, Madison Heights, Virginia 24572, Amherst County Tax Map Parcel 160 A 69
This report presents the methods and findings of a supplemental Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) performed at the Central Virginia Training Center (CVTC). The Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) is the operator of the facility and is in the process of placing CVTC in a surplus property status.
This Phase II ESA was prepared to further characterize findings and fill data gaps in the 2017 Phase II ESA. The 2017 Phase II ESA assessed the presence or absence of contaminants in soil and groundwater from the high and medium priority findings presented in the Site-Specific Environmental Conditions Assessment (ECA) that was performed by EEE Consulting, Inc. (3e) in July 2017. This ECA identified 23 findings that were determined to be Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs). The subsequent October 2017 Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) characterized 19 RECs as High to Medium Risk and four (4) RECs to be of Low Risk. It was determined that no additional characterization was appropriate for 12 of the 19 RECs. This November 2018 Supplemental Phase II ESA focused on the remaining seven (7) RECs and two (2) additional areas that were not characterized in 2017, with the following results -- see Table EX-1. Summary of Findings and Results on numbered page 2 of the report.
This Supplemental Phase II ESA provided additional data on those Findings classified as high and moderate risk to third party (offsite) receptors, human health and the environment. The remaining Findings presented in the July 2017 ECA will require assessment and/or management as part of facility closure; however, many of these Findings are associated with processes currently in use (e.g. the 90,000-gallon heating oil AST at the boiler plant, USTs currently in use, etc.). These operational units may require future environmental management should they be decommissioned or demolished.
A flow chart illustrating a summary of prior, current, and recommended path forward to address future environmental conditions is included as Figure 3. As described in Table EX-1 and Figure 3, the next phase of environmental management at CVTC will involve determining the feasibility of enrolling the facility in the Virginia Voluntary Remediation Program (VRP). The goal of enrollment in the VRP will be to carry remedial options that will support the issuance of a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion (CSC). Issuance of a CSC will allow for the transfer of land ownership and a productive redevelopment of the property.
