The Environmental Protection Agency is announcing a  removal action that will involve demolition of the former electroplating facility, and excavation of contaminated soil from the Lane Plating Works Inc. Superfund site.  EPA received information showing that trespassers previously broke into the former electroplating facility, potentially exposing people who enter the building to unacceptable levels of hexavalent chromium dust.  The Removal Action will include demolition of the electroplating facility, excavation of contaminated soil to a depth of approximately 5 feet in the area near the facility, and disposal of contaminated soil and building material at an appropriate landfill. The EPA will also conduct additional soil sampling and air monitoring to ensure hazardous dust is contained during the removal action. The agency will continue working on the long-term cleanup of the site to address other contamination found at the site.

The EPA continues to work with the Lane Plating Community Advisory Group (LP CAG), community leaders, and the city of Dallas to keep the community near the Lane Plating site informed about issues related to the site. With the assistance and dedication of local stakeholders, EPA continues to prioritize community engagement for the site. EPA and the LP CAG plan to host a community meeting regarding the removal action at the Highland Hills Library on November 19 at 11:00 a.m. The meeting will cover details about work planned at the site and provide an update on the ongoing long-term cleanup at the site.

 

Background

The Lane Plating Works, Inc. is a site of a former electroplating facility located in south Dallas, that operated for more than 90 years. Due to violations, investigations and a bankruptcy filing, the facility shut down in 2015 and large volumes of liquid plating wastes were left at the site. Since the site was added to the National Priorities List (NPL) in 2018, EPA has removed 188,000 pounds of waste material and worked with local and city officials on clean up strategies.
