The 9-acre Laskin/Poplar Oil site is in Jefferson Township, Ashtabula County, Ohio. Included on the site are: a residence, a greenhouse complex, a boiler house/garage containing 4 boilers, a smokestack, 4 oil storage pits, 1 underground and 32 above ground oil storage tanks, a retention pond, a freshwater pond, and miscellaneous small buildings. In the 1960s storage pits and tanks were installed to store waste oil for the boilers that heated the greenhouses. The Poplar Oil Company continued to accept the waste oil throughout the 1960s and 1970s. In 1981 EPA found PCBs in onsite ground water and soil which resulted in several emergency actions. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, onsite structures, and debris are organics including PCBs, PAHs, pesticides, and dioxin; and metals including lead. The selected remedial action for the site is described.
