Abstract This decision document presents the remedial action for the Butler Mine Tunnel Site ('Site') in the City of Pittston, Pennsylvania. This remedy addresses the possible future releases of hazaradous substances from the Butler Tunnel. The remedy uses an Administrative Center to (1) monitor rainfall, (2) monitor flow rate at the Tunnel discharge location, (3) measure water levels in monitoring boreholes and (4) collect water samples for chemical analysis to attempt to predict when a discharge of hazardous substances may occur. This remedy also includes preparation for future remedial response by constructing access roads and anchors along the river's edge and pre-purchasing containment and absorbent booms necessary for any such remedial response. The remedy includes design and implementation of two future response actions to cleanup future discharges.
