Blackwell Administrative Record File


"So it is Said..."

The Purpose of this document is to provide the public with an index to the Administrative Record File (AR File) for the selected remedial action to respond to the conditions at the Blackwell Zinc Site (Site) located in Blackwell OK.

Section 113 (k)(1) of CERCLA, 42 USC 9613 (k)(1), requires the establishment of an AR Upon which the selection of remedial actions shall be based.  As decisions are being made regarding the course of action at a site of release of hazardous substances, documents concering the site and the remedial action decision are compiled into an AR File.  This means that documents may be added to the AR File from time to time.  After finalization and signature of the Action Memorandum or Record of Decision memorializing the selection of the remedial action, the documents that from the basis for the selection of the action constiute the AR. 

Section 113 (k)(1) of CERCLA, 42 USC Section 9613 (k)(1), requires that AR File to be made available to the public at or near the site of the remedial action.  Accouingly, a repository where the AR File may be reviewed has been established near the Site at:

Blackwell Public Library 123 W. Padon Ave.

The AR file may also be reviewed at the office of the ODEQ.
