West Virginia DEP Approves Union Carbide Site Cleanup Plan
State regulators have approved Union Carbide's plan to clean up a former warehouse and drum storage facility in Charleston.
The Department of Environmental Protection says Union Carbide operated the facilities at the former Kelly Field Site from the late 1940s to the early 1990s. The property is now vacant.
The DEP says in a news release that Union Carbide's cleanup method includes prohibiting groundwater extraction at the site for any use except monitoring and/or remediation. It also requires that a soil cover at the site be maintained.
The site will be cleaned up through the state's Voluntary Remediation Program.
