The 3.5-acre National Electric Coil/Cooper Industries site includes an active manufacturing facility in Dayhoit, Harlan County, Kentucky. A 1,000-gallon tank, which held the solvent, was maintained in a below-grade concrete pit. Periodically, the tank was drained and the waste liquid was allowed to flow overland and drain into the Cumberland River. Sludge from the tank and debris from an onsite furnace were disposed of along the riverbank. These improper disposal practices, which continued until the mid-1980's, have resulted in contamination of the local drinking water supply, drainage channels, river embankment property, and facility grounds. The ROD provides an interim remedy for the VOC contamination in the bedrock aquifer to further restrict migration of the VOC-contaminant plume. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water in the bedrock aquifer and air are VOCs, including TCE, toluene, and xylenes; and metals, including lead.
