The 21-acre Wamchem site is located in Burton, Beaufort County, South Carolina on a small island in the midst of a salt marsh near a tidal stream. Between 1959 and 1972, the Beaufort Chemical and Research Company operated the site, producing dyes for the textile industry; in 1972, M. Lowenstein Company purchased the facility and continued operations until 1981. Liquid wastes generated at the site were discharged to a drainage ditch leading to two unlined ponds. Ground water contamination was documented at the site in 1982. The selected remedial actions for this site are discussed. The estimated capital cost for this remedial action is $1,310,000, with annual O&M of $155,100.
