The Bypass 601 Groundwater Contamination site, is in Concord, Cabarrus County, North Carolina. One of the potential sources of onsite contamination is the 13-acre Martin Scrap Recycling Facility (MSR) facility, an inactive battery salvage and recycling operation. The MRS Facility consists of two tracts of land; the larger tract includes a main facility that was used for lead reclamation activities; and the second lot encompasses the floodplain area. The Main Facility is comprised of several lead-contaminated buildings including a scale house, several garages and sheds, as a result of onsite battery cracking operations. Contaminated debris including old tanks, drums, wires, casings, and trash is spread throughout the Main Facility area. The southeastern corner of the Main Facility has been backfilled with cracked battery casings to a depth of 20 feet. Approximately 57,000 cubic yards of lead-contaminated soil remains onsite from previous battery salvage activities. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses Operable Unit 1 (OU1), which will contain the source contamination from the MSR facility to minimize the continued degradation of ground water and surface water. Subsequent RODs will address the final action and remediation of other onsite contaminant sources (OU2) and ground water contamination (OU3). The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and debris are metals including chromium and lead.
