The 40-acre Berlin and Farro site is a former liquid incineration and landfill facility in Gaines Township, Genessee County, Michigan. The site overlies two aquifers, which provide well water to the approximately 80 permanent homes located within a 1/2 mile radius of the site. From 1971 to 1975, Berlin and Farro Liquid Incineration, Inc., used the site to accept and store industrial wastes prior to incineration, and disposed of crushed drums in a 1.1-acre onsite landfill. In 1975, Berlin and Farro's permits were revoked; however, illegal dumping of industrial waste into the lagoons apparently continued after the site was closed. Several separate clean-up actions were undertaken by the PRPs, the State, and EPA during the early to mid-1980's. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the final remedy for contaminated soil, sediment, and ground water at the Berlin and Farro site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, and ground water are VOCs including benzene, PCE, TCE, toluene, and xylenes; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead. The selected remedial action for this site is included.
