Undeveloped Buffer Property Investigation and Remediation (also known as the VCP Parcel)

The Undeveloped Buffer Property consists of approximately 170 acres of undeveloped land surrounding the Former Operating Plant.  This portion of the Exide property is being investigated and remediated under the TCEQ’s Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP).  For the VCP project, Exide and the City of Frisco and its economic and community development entities (purchasers of the Undeveloped Buffer Property) are co-applicants. 


The Affected Property Site Report (APAR) and Response Action Plan (RAP) for the VCP project identify cleanup goals, cleanup procedures, and sampling to confirm cleanup goals have been met.  The APAR and RAP were provided for public review and discussed at a public meeting.  TCEQ approved the APAR and RAP, and field work to implement the approved RAP was completed during the period from January 2017 through June 2018.  The cleanup standard for lead applied to the remediation was half of the residential cleanup standard; residential standards were otherwise applied and achieved.  On July 31, 2018, the Response Action Completion Report (RACR), which documents the remediation process and completion, was submitted to TCEQ for review.  The RACR is posted here for public review for at least a 30-day comment period. A public meeting is being scheduled for the latter half of the comment period and details concerning the public meeting and the end date of the public comment period will follow.  A copy of the RACR is also available at the Frisco Public Library.


The approximate bounds of the property are depicted below.
