The 99-acre Cabot/Koppers site is a pine tar and charcoal generation facility in Gainesville, Alachua County, Florida. The site is underlain by shallow and intermediate aquifers. Land in the site vicinity is used for commercial and residential purposes. Pine tar and charcoal generation operations in the early 1900s generated a large number of blended solvents as by-products. Resultant wastewaters were treated onsite in a lagoon. The Koppers portion of the site has been operated since 1916 as a wood preserving operation. Between 1980 and 1989, various site investigations by the State, EPA and private parties identified soil contamination in the three lagoons, the inactive cooling pond, the drip tracks, and a wood shavings pile. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses contaminated onsite soil and ground water. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs including benzene; other organics including oils, phenols, and PAHs; and metals including arsenic and chromium.
