The Ludlow Sand and Gravel site is located approximately six miles south of Utica, in the town of Paris, Oneida County, New York. The landfill, which is the focus of this ROD, is in a ground water recharge zone to the principal aquifer along Sauquoit Creek. Fill material is in contact with the ground water in some locations in the landfill. The waste included domestic wastes, septic tank effluent, industrial wastes such as dyes, waste oils and metallurgical cooling oils, and animal parts from a meat processing plant. The primary contaminants of concern affecting soil, sediments and ground water are VOCs including benzene and toluene and organics including PCBs and phenols. The selected remedial action for the site includes: consolidation and onsite disposal into the landfill of approximately 10,000 cu yds of contaminated soil and sediment adjacent to the landfill, and installation of an impermeable cover over the landfill; collection of leachate from seepage areas formed from the landfill and dewatering of the landfill.
