The Hastings Groundwater Contamination site consists of localized areas where an aquifer is contaminated with industrial chemicals in or near the City of Hastings, Adams County, Nebraska. Both the source control operable unit 10 (OU10) and ground water operable unit (OU2) of the North Landfill, a 13.4-acre former municipal landfill, are addressed by the ROD. The estimated 23,000 residents of Hastings obtain their drinking water from the municipal water system, which taps into the underlying sole-source aquifer. In 1983, ground water contamination was discovered when the State sampled the Hastings public water supply system in response to citizen complaints about water quality. The ROD provides an interim remedy for both OUs. Future RODs may address additional source control measures, subsurface monitoring, ground water extraction and treatment, wellhead protection and treatment, and provision of institutional controls. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs including TCE, DCE, and vinyl chloride. The selected remedial action for the interim remedy is included.
