          IDPH recommends that IEPA:

  1. Restrict access to the site. Maintain fences around the tar pit.

  2. Collect data to assess the surface soil contamination adequately (less or equal to 3 inches deep) and the contaminant migration into the groundwater, especially downgradient of the tar pit.

  3. Collect data to assess the surface water quality and the status of buried scrap cylinders.

  4. Reduce the potential for migration of on-site contaminants to off-site areas.
