The 0.75-acre Wedzeb Enterprises site is located in Lebanon, Indiana. Originally, two warehouses, one of which was used as a storage facility for electrical capacitors and transformers containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), were located on site. In May 1981 the warehouse used for storage was completely destroyed by fire. Contaminants may have been washed into the sewer lines during the fire, providing a source of long-term contaminant release to the Lebanon publicly-owned treatment works (POTW). The primary contaminants of concern affecting the sewer sediment are PCBs. The selected remedial action for the site includes cleaning the sewer lines with hydraulic jets and vacuum pumping to remove contaminants, followed by filtering the resulting water and sediment to remove PCB-contaminated sediment, and discharging the water to the POTW; offsite incineration and disposal of the estimated 2 drums of sediment and 20 drums of remedial investigation generated waste if PCB levels are 50 mg/kg or greater, or offsite disposal only if PCB levels are below 50 mg/kg; and a television inspection of the pipeline to ensure structural integrity.
