The Stringfellow site is located in Riverside County, approximately five miles northwest of the City of Riverside and one mile north of the community of Glen Avon. The Stringfellow site which encompassed approximately 17 acres, potentially affects the Chino III ground water basin which is used for industrial and agricultural purposes and as a domestic drinking water supply for approximately 40,000 residents. During the site operation from 1956 to 1972, approximately 34 million gallons of toxic waste were disposed of at the site. Past disposal techniques included discharging liquid wastes, mainly acids and heavy metals, to ponds for solar evaporation and spraying liquid wastes into the air to accelerate evaporation. Substances disposed of include heavy metals such as chromium and cadmium, acids including sulfuric acid, and organics including DDT and TCE. The selected remedial alternative involves initial remedial measures to fence the site, and maintain the existing cap, and control erosion; interim source control for off-site disposal of leachate extracted above and below the on-site clay barrier dam, and reimbursement to the State for source control measures.
