The McColl site is located approximately 20 miles southeast of Los Angeles in a residential area of Fullerton, California. The site was previously used as a disposal area for acid sludge wastes from the production of high octane aviation fuel during World War II. Oil field drilling muds were later disposed of on the acid sludge. The waste is characterized by low pH and high sulfur content. Arsenic, benzene, and organic sulfur dioxide (SO2) and tetrahydrothiophene were also identified in the waste and soil. Gases produced from the material include benzene, SO2, hydrogen sulfide and various odorous hydrocarbons.
