The Allied Chemical site is located in the City of Ironton, Lawrence County, Ohio. The remedial action addresses the Goldcamp Disposal Area (GDA) operable unit of the site. The GDA was a sand and gravel pit used for disposal of various chemical wastes from three sources between 1945 and 1977. In 1977, Allied decided to discontinue use of the GDA for disposal of chemical wastes. Allied and its contractor, in consultation with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA), completed a closure project at the site in August 1980, which involved removal of standing liquids and filling and capping the site with clay. Subsequent hydrogeologic and water quality investigations indicated that there is ground water contamination at the site which may pose a threat to public health through migration. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs including benzene, other organics including phenols and PAHs, and inorganics including cyanide. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
