Notice of Intent to Perform Removal Action at the Kingsbury Metal Finishing State Superfund Site
The executive director of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ or commission) hereby issues public notice of intent to perform a removal action, as provided by Texas Health and Safety Code (THSC), §361.133, for the Kingsbury Metal Finishing state Superfund site (the site). The site, including all land, structures, appurtenances, and other improvements, is approximately 14.9 acres, located at 1720 Farm-to-Market Road 1104, in Kingsbury, Guadalupe County, Texas. The site also includes any areas where hazardous substances have come to be located as a result, either directly or indirectly, of releases of hazardous substances from the site.
The facility was in operation from approximately 1986 through 1997, during which time the facility plated zinc and chromium to metal parts. The contaminants of concern at the site are metals.
The site is proposed for listing under THSC, Chapter 361, Subchapter F. A removal can be completed without extensive investigation and planning and will achieve a significant cost reduction for the site. The remedial objectives of the site can be achieved through a technically uncomplicated removal action. The removal action will consist of excavation of contaminated soils. Thus, a detailed and extensive design process is unnecessary in this case, and the significant costs associated with that process can be averted.
A portion of the record for this site is available for review during regular business hours at the Seguin-Guadalupe County Public Library, 707 East College Street, Seguin, Texas 78155, (830) 401-2422. Copies of the complete public record file may be obtained during regular business hours at the commission's Records Management Center, Building E, First Floor, North Entrance, Room 190, 12100 Park 35 Circle, Austin, Texas 78753, telephone numbers (800) 633-9363 or (512) 239-2920. Photocopying of file information is subject to payment of a fee. Handicapped parking is available on the east side of Building D, convenient to access ramps that are between Buildings D and E.
For further information, please contact Ms. Carol Dye, project manager, TCEQ, Remediation Division, at (512) 239-1504 or Ms. Janie Montemayor, Community Relations Coordinator, TCEQ, Remediation Division, at (512) 239-3844.
