 EPA TO COMPLETE CLEANUP OF PCB CONTAMINATION
 AT THE GAYLE MILL SITE IN CHESTER, S.C.
 ATLANTA, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will begin the final phase of a Superfund cleanup at the Gayle Mill site in Chester, S.C. the week of April 13.
 The cleanup will take place under the authority and direction of EPA's Emergency Response and Removal Branch. The cleanup is expected to be completed in three to four months at an estimated cost of $120,000.
 The Gayle Mill site is located on Dawson Road near the intersection of Dawson Road and Gage Street. The site primarily is contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) as the result of a spill of PCB oil caused by a broken transformer valve.
 The initial phase of the cleanup included the removal and disposal of a transformer, and incineration of six drums of PCB-contaminated oil and rinse water from the transformer.
 The final phase of the cleanup will include the excavation and disposal of contaminated soil. The excavated area will be backfilled. The remaining soil will be sampled to assure that the cleanup level has been attained.
 The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA, also known as Superfund) and the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) authorize EPA to respond to actual or threatened releases of hazardous substances that may endanger public health, welfare or the environment. This site is not on the National Priorities List (NPL) of hazardous waste sites.
