The Publicker/Cuyahoga Wrecking site is a 37-acre, abandoned manufacturing plant in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. EPA evaluated site conditions in 1987 following two explosions and a large fire. Tankers, pits/sumps, and numerous process lines were found to contain fuel oils or other contaminated oils. EPA initiated an emergency removal action in December 1987 to stabilize the site and control the threat of additional fires and explosions. The selected remedial action for the site includes offsite treatment and disposal of the various waste streams in RCRA-permitted facilities; demolition of above-ground process lines, with proper packaging of contaminated insulation and onsite storage pending disposition in a subsequent remedial action; and offsite disposal of hazardous chemicals recovered from within the lines.
