    EPA TO HOLD PUBLIC AVAILABILITY SESSION REGARDING THE REMEDIAL
     INVESTIGATION AT GREENBACK INDUSTRIES SITE, GREENBACK, TENN.
    ATLANTA, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold an availability session on Tuesday, Nov. 19, to discuss progress of the Remedial Investigation at Greenback Industries in Greenback, Tenn.
    The session will be held at the Greenback Community Center from 5-9 p.m.
    EPA personnel, company officials, and SMC, Inc. (contractor) project representatives will be present to answer questions and provide information about future activities planned for completion of the study at the 27-acre facility and surrounding area.
    Greenback Industries, Inc., a recycler of used or off-specification copper for production of copper and copper alloy powders, is conducting the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) with EPA and state supervision.  The comprehensive study examines soil, surface water, stream sediments, and groundwater on- and off-site of the facility.  The facility is located on U.S. Highway 411, one mile south of Greenback.
    Greenback Industries, Inc. began the RI/FS in early August 1991 under terms of an Administrative Order on Consent with EPA.  The agreement was reached after EPA and state preliminary studies indicated that copper, barium, and lead were present in and around the facility in levels exceeding those found naturally in the region.  Although the contaminants pose no human health risk in the short term, the RI/FS is needed to determine the extent of contamination and whether any risk to human health or the environment could occur in the future.
    "We are pleased with the purposeful approach Greenback Industries has taken at this site," commented EPA Project Manager Robert Morris, "and with the expedient and effective way in which SMC, Inc. has performed the sampling activities."
    EPA anticipates that sampling rounds and laboratory analyses of the data will be completed in January 1992.  Project staff will evaluate potential risks posed by the findings and will assess feasible cleanup alternatives if a cleanup is needed.
