Acme Visible Records Project Update – November 2022

[Email Update from Ms. Sarah Huddle, APR – Public Information Coordinator, Former Acme Visible Records site—Crozet, VA]

November 22, 2022

Dear Neighbor,

This notification is being presented to provide an update regarding the inspections, groundwater sampling, and groundwater corrective action activities being conducted at the Former Acme Visible site (aka former Wilson Jones Company [WJC]).  All investigation and remediation is proceeding pursuant to state oversight through the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VDEQ).

Groundwater Corrective Action

Soil remediation at the Site is complete as of 2019. Groundwater monitoring conducted since that time has shown decreases in groundwater contaminants as the source in soil has been removed.  Further active remediation is now focused on groundwater. The groundwater contaminant area is similar in nature and extent as presented in previous reports and confined to the WJC site.

A pilot study for groundwater corrective action was conducted in November-December 2020.  The results of this pilot study were reported in the 2021 Annual Groundwater Monitoring and Groundwater Corrective Action Report dated August 31, 2022.  The pilot study indicated that the implementation of in-situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) was successful. Therefore, full scale treatment on the north side of the property is planned to continue. Additional injection wells were installed, and injections completed, in May 2022.  Post injection sampling was completed in August 2022. The activities conducted as part of this initial injection were reported to VDEQ in Groundwater Corrective Action Progress Report No. 2, dated October 28, 2022.

Also, additional injection wells will be installed and ISCO injections will be conducted on the south side of the site to address VOC impacts.  This work is expected to be complete by June 2023. WJC will continue to monitor contaminants of concern in groundwater on the north side of the site near AOC-6, former degreasing area and the source of groundwater contamination, to evaluate plume conditions and determine whether additional corrective action may be warranted.

Also, WJC continues to conduct semiannual groundwater monitoring as part of the Facility’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Permit, administered by VDEQ. The monitoring results are reported to VDEQ on an annual basis.

Conclusions

We hope you find this update helpful. We will provide updates concerning future on-site tasks as the groundwater remediation work progresses.

Please feel free to contact Ms. Huddle at (804) 248-0489 or sarahhuddle@thinkalbright.com if I may be of further assistance. Wilson Jones Company is committed to working with the VDEQ and the community to complete the project and bring the property back to productive use.

Best regards,  Sarah Huddle, APR
Public Information Coordinator, Former Acme Visible Records site—Crozet, VA
