Excerpt: The Record of Decision (ROD) for cleanup of the Bunker Hill Mining and Metallurgical Complex Superfund Facility Operable Unit 3 (OU-3) (EPA 2002) represents the next step in a long and contentious path for all concerned with human health and the environment in the Silver Valley of northern Idaho, Lake Coeur d?Alene, and the Spokane River down to Upriver Dam. The ROD for OU-3 is the next phase of the complex process of developing selected remedies for the Coeur d?Alene Superfund facility. ?The Facility includes mining-contaminated areas in the Coeur d?Alene River corridor, adjacent floodplain, downstream water bodies, tributaries, and fill areas, as well as the 21-square-mile Bunker Hill ?box? located in the area surrounding the historic smelting operations? (EPA 2002 part 1, p. 1). The facility was listed on the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) National Priorities List in 1983. It took almost 10 years for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue RODs for remediation of the area considered to be the major source of risk to human health and the environment?a 21-square-mile area (the ?box?) roughly encompassing the Interstate 90 corridor from Pinehurst to Kellogg, Idaho. RODs were signed for the populated areas of the Bunker Hill box (OU-1) and the nonpopulated areas of the box (OU-2) in 1991 and 1992, respectively. In 1998, EPA extended Superfund activities outside of the box to OU-3 and the ROD for this operable unit was issued in 2002.
