 EPA TO BEGIN FIELD WORK AT THE PIPER AIRCRAFT SUPERFUND SITE
 IN VERO BEACH, FLA.
 ATLANTA, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will begin field work for the Remedial Investigation (RI) at the Piper Aircraft Corporation Superfund site in Vero Beach, Fla., during the week of Aug. 24.
 The Environmental Services Division of EPA will conduct the investigation in two phases. The sampling investigation is expected to be completed by Sept. 30.
 The RI, the first step in the clean-up process, will determine the nature and extent of contamination. Following completion of the RI, a Feasibility Study (FS) will be developed by EPA to evaluate clean-up alternatives. The RI/FS is estimated to take approximately 12 to 18 months. Following the RI/FS, EPA will propose a clean-up plan and present it for public comment. The selection of a remedy, which will be outlined in the agency's Record of Decision (ROD), will be made following the public's input during the public comment period.
 Piper Aircraft Corporation, located at the southern edge of the Vero Beach Airport on State Route 607, assembles and paints light aircraft. A leak from one of the underground storage tanks at the facility resulted in the shutdown of one of the city's drinking water wells due to trichloroethylene (TCE) contamination. Piper repaired the leaking storage tank, and the city of Vero Beach closed the contaminated well and installed two new city wells. Piper installed a groundwater recovery and treatment system that has been in operation for the past 11 years. Quarterly monitoring continues to indicate contamination at the site.
 Documents related to the Superfund process and other background information are available for public review at the Indian River County Main Library, 1600 21st St., in Vero Beach.
 The Piper Aircraft Superfund site was added to EPA's National Priorities List (NPL) of hazardous waste sites in February 1990. NPL sites are eligible to receive federal funds for long-term clean-up actions.
