The Ellisville Site Area, located in West St. Louis County, Missouri, is composed of three non-contiguous properties: the Rosalie property; the Callahan property; and the Bliss property. During the 1960s and 1970s, Russell Bliss owned and operated the Bliss Waste Oil Company, a business engaged in the transportation and disposal of waste oil products, industrial wastes and chemical wastes. In September 1980 the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. EPA conducted an onsite investigation. Concluding reports indicated pits had been dug and used for industrial waste disposal; drums of waste had been buried on site; and liquid wastes had been applied on the ground. The types of waste were reported to include solvents, oils, pesticides, and can coating materials. Dioxin is currently the only contaminant of threat. Approximately 20,000 cubic yards of soil, and an unknown volume of dust are contaminated with 2,3,7,8-TCDD (TCDD or dioxin).
