On 31 March 2010 the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) and EPA’s Brownsfield Program conducted an assessment of the Henryetta Iron and Metal Facility located in Henryetta, Oklahoma. The property consists mostly of iron and metal material and equipment that was reportedly imported from oilfield operations. In addition to a site walk the assessment consisted of some soil, sediment, surface water, and groundwater sampling. During the assessment of the property 8-55 gallon drums of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) were discovered. Analytical results from sampling indicated a presence of Polychlorinated Biphenlys (PCBs) in the groundwater. ODEQ requested the assistance of EPA's Removal Program to address the PCBs and NORM contaminated drums. On 15 December 2010 the EPA OSC conducted a site visit with ODEQ to further assess the NORM contaminated drums and PCBs.
