The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL), Site Management Support Branch, conducted a comprehensive treatability project for wood preserving sites in 1995 and 1996. The primary contaminants of concern are polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, pentachloropenol, metals, doxins and furans. The three sites selected for this study were the American Creosote Works (ACW) site in Jackson, Tennessee; the Rab Valley Company Site (RAB) in Panama, Oklahoma; and the McCormick and Baxter (MCB) site in Stockton, California. Soil and water samples were collected from all three sites. Contaminants in these samples were profiled and the soils were characterized. Samples were shipped to the different vendors for the treatability tests. The overall objective of this project of this project was to develop treatability data on technologies which are capable of reducing the mobility, toxicity and/or volume of the primary contaminants from soils, groundwater, and emulsions at wood treating sites. This study provides treatability information on complex wastes, including the effects of these technologies on dioxins and furans.
