Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Lake Superior Barrels Project Field Work
Date:2/1/2013

continue to follow existing guidelines for Lake Superior.

Although the goal of the fieldwork was to recover 70 barrels, the recovery team faced several challenges upon the discovery of and accumulation of several thousand active ejection charges. The primary concern was the safety of the team combined with the logistical concerns regarding the transport and disposal of explosive materials. After the recovery of 25 barrels, the Red Cliff Tribe and EMR, in consultation with federal agencies, made the decision to stop the recovery of additional barrels in order to reserve a portion of the project budget for the transport and disposal of the ejection cup assemblies. All recovered materials are securely stored while regulatory compliance details are arranged.

A variety of analytical testing was performed on samples taken from within the recovered barrels and from sediment and water outside of the barrel before they were recovered. Radiation testing was conducted immediately after each recovered barrel reached the surface of the water. No levels of radiation above background were detected at any point during the fieldwork. All samples were shipped to an independent, accredited laboratory and tested for a wide range of chemical constituents, including Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) metals, VOCs, PCBs, PAHs, and asbestos. All of the analytical testing has been completed and analysis is ongoing. Work will continue on this project through the spring and summer. The analytical results will be used to determine if the barrel contents pose any potential threat to area residents, tribes, fisheries, aquatic life, or the environment. The primary goal is to determine if further investigation or remediation is required. Results will be summarized in a Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) compliant Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study reports, which are expected to be complete in 2013.
