The Laskin/Poplar Oil site, occupying approximately 9 acres, is located in Ashtabula County, Ohio. Approximately 80 years ago a greenhouse operation began. Boilers were installed approximately 30 years ago to heat the greenhouses. During the 1960's, tanks were installed to hold waste oil to fire the boilers. The oils were not analyzed prior to acceptance and oil containing PCBs and other hazardous constituents were accepted. As the greenhouse business deteriorated, the owner began collecting, reselling and disposing of waste oils containing PCBs and other hazardous constituents. Several emergency actions were taken after the site was discovered and during critical periods such as mudslides and flooding. Between July and October 1982, a planned removal action removed 302,000 gallons of waste oil, solidified 205,000 gallons of sludge and treated and released 430,000 gallons of contaminated water. An August 1984 Record of Decision addressed the incineration of contaminated water, oil above 50 ppm, PCB and oil below 50 ppm PCB.
