This paper discusses the regulatory and environmental issues arising from the response to the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Chisman Creek Superfund Site in York County, Virginia. Field investigations to determine the hydrogeologic and geologic site characteristics are described. A two-dimensional numerical ground-water flow model was used to evaluate solute migration and leachate generation. A treatability study evaluated treatment processes and the toxicity of treatment process sludges. An Operating Plan, a Post-Closure Plan, a Ground- and Surface-Water Monitoring Plan, and a Community Relations Plan were developed for the site.
