The 6-acre Jadco-Hughes site is a former solvent reclamation and waste storage facility in North Belmont, Gaston County, North Carolina. Two unnamed tributaries that flow through the site ultimately empty into the Catawba River, which is the predominant public drinking water supply source for the area. Ground water is not used as drinking water onsite, but offsite residents who do not yet have municipal water connections utilize the ground water for their drinking water source. From 1969 to 1975, the plant was operated to reclaim used waste paint and ink-type solvents. In addition, the plant area was used to store drummed wastes, including waste chemicals and sludges from area industries. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the remediation of remaining contaminated soil and the contaminated ground water and surface water. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, ground water, and surface water are VOCs including benzene, PCE, TCE, toluene and xylenes; other organics including PCBs and phenols; and metals including arsenic, chromium and lead.
