The 42-acre Lindsay Manufacturing site is an irrigation sprinkler manufacturing facility in Lindsay, Platte County, Nebraska. The site is in a topographic low created by Shell Creek, a USDA-designated wetland. Sprinkler manufacturing operations began in 1958, and until 1982, 10,000 to 15,000 gallons of spent acid from a galvanizing process was piped monthly to an earthen unlined disposal pit. Test wells for the 1982 treatment facility construction showed acid contamination of ground water. Investigations from 1987-1989 revealed soil and ground water contamination by organics and metals throughout the site. The ROD addresses both the remediation of soil source areas and the enhancement of the ground water treatment. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs, including PCE; and metals including chromium and lead.
