The 95-acre Allied Chemical and Ironton Coke site is comprised of a former coke plant and an operating tar plant in Ironton, Lawrence County, Ohio. The site is located within a coal mining region, and surrounding land use is predominantly industrial and residential. The ROD addresses contamination at all areas not previously addressed, and provides a final remedy at the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, and ground water are VOCs including benzene; other organics including PAHs and phenols; metals including arsenic; and other inorganics including cyanide. The selected remedial action for this site includes excavating and incinerating onsite approximately 122,000 cubic yards of waste material from Lagoon 5, and 31,000 cubic yards of waste coal, followed by onsite waste fuel recovery and disposing of the residual ash offsite; in-situ bioremediation of approximately 475,000 cubic yards of waste material from Lagoons.
