The Hooker Chemical S-Area site is a former landfill area located in Niagara Falls, New York. The site lies adjacent to the Niagara River. Approximately 63,000 tons of chemical processing wastes were disposed of at the landfill. Ground water beneath the site also has been contaminated from aqueous phase and non-aqueous phase liquid chemicals. Chemicals have migrated toward the Niagara Falls Drinking Water Treatment Plant (DWTP) which lies to the east of the site, contaminating the Bedrock intake structures. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the landfill, a contaminated ground water plume, bedrock contamination, and the DWTP. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, and ground water are VOCs including PCE; and other organics including chlorinated organics and pesticides. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
