The 7.3-acre Saunders Supply site is an active lumber yard facility in the Village of Chuckatuck, a rural area of the City of Suffolk, Virginia. Land use in the area is predominantly mixed residential and commercial. The site is composed of the Saunders Supply Company property and a portion of the adjacent Kelly property. From 1964 to 1991, the SaundersSupply Company used the site to chemically treat wood before distribution. The improper treatment and disposal processes have contaminated onsite soil, sediment, and ground water. Prinicipal site features include the treatment facilities, a former conical burn pit area, a former earthen separation pond, and a wastewater pond west of the site. EPA conducted additional investigations that revealed the presence of pentachlorophenol (PCP), arsenic, and chromium in the ground water. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses all media impacted by site contamination as a final remedy. The primary contaminants of concern affecting soil, sediment, and ground water are organics including dioxins and PCP; and metals including arsenic and chromium. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
