Update for Week of June 25, 2018:
Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH) treatment system operating measures as of June 22, 2018:
During the week of June 25, 2018, you will see a drill rig at the site to replace an inoperative electrode. This replacement should not delay the subsurface heating schedule.
Please note that you may see occasional steam from the thermal treatment unit during system operation. This is normal water condensation caused by weather conditions, and not a release of TCE vapor.
For additional information about the ERH treatment system, please see the EPA News Release: Treatment Begins at CTS of Asheville Superfund Site (https://www.epa.gov/superfund/superfund-task-force-accomplishments#asheville).
