The 300-acre Industrial Excess Landfill site is in Uniontown, Stark County, Ohio. Several hundred residences are within a half mile of the site, and all residences and businesses in the Uniontown area rely on ground water from private well supplies. The site was operated as a mixed industrial and refuse landfill from 1966 until 1980. Large amounts of fly ash and liquid wastes including latex and spent organic solvents were disposed of in the landfill between 1968 and 1972. In 1986 an active methane extraction system was installed to prevent the offsite migration of explosive levels of methane gas. In April 1987 EPA installed air strippers in eight residences and two businesses due to the presence of low levels of volatile organic compounds. In September 1987 EPA signed a Record of Decision (ROD) to provide an alternate water supply to 100 homes west of the site to ensure that the community received safe drinking water. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediments, and ground water are VOCs including benzene, vinyl chloride, and PCE; other organics including carcinogenic PAHs; and metals.
