: Major cleanup milestones at a site include the first cleanup action completed, proposal to the NPL, final NPL listing, final remedy selection, construction complete, and deletion from the NPL.

In June 1994, following a comprehensive site investigation, the EPA selected a remedy to clean up the site. The remedy included the removal of materials contaminated with radioactive waste, the demolition of contaminated houses, the repairing of one contaminated house, the permanent relocation of residents of eight of the demolished houses, the rebuilding of ten of the houses, and the removal of contaminated soils on 21 different properties in five municipalities.

Site cleanup activities began in late 1995 and were completed in November 1997. All the permanent residential relocations have been completed. All radiologically contaminated structures have been dismantled, and the associated contaminated soils on the affected properties have been excavated and shipped off site for disposal.

Current status: restoration complete.
