Q: Is there an environmental report available for Peaks of Otter, Doughton Park, and Otter Creek that addresses any asbestos, lead, underground fuel tanks, etc. on the properties?

A. It is not clear what is meant by the term environmental report so we are unable to state whether the requested document is or may be available. However, the NPS has reviewed pertinent records concerning the existing Concession Facilities and found the following information:

The Service has reason to suspect there is asbestos or asbestos-containing building materials (ACM) in pipe insulation and the 8x8 floor tiles in the basement of the Bluffs Coffee Shop at Doughton Park. However, the Service has not performed any testing to either confirm or deny the presence of asbestos or ACM in the Bluffs Coffee Shop at Doughton Park.

In 1987, the Bluffs Service Station at Doughton Park had a release of gasoline, which was documented, mitigated, and monitored through the installation of ground water wells.

In 2006, the Bluffs Service Station at Doughton Park ceased to operate and the three (3) underground fuel storage tanks (UST) were removed.

In 2007, a Type II ground water monitoring well was installed at the Bluffs Service Station at Doughton Park. Records show that monitoring ceased in 2010. The Service does not know whether further monitoring (or any other mitigation measures) is required on this site. The North Carolina Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (NCDENR) has advised the Service that Forever Resorts is still the responsible party.
