The site, which is approximately one-quarter acre in size, was used originally for storage of heating oil and gasoline. The site was purchased in 1972 by a waste disposal firm that used the underground tanks to store a variety of liquid and hazardous wastes. EPA analysis of the tank contents identified a wide variety of organic and inorganic chemicals, including benzene, methylene chloride, toluene, arsenic, chromium, and nickel. The cost-effective initial remedial measures (IRM) selected for this site include cleaning and removal of underground waste storage tanks and excavating and off-site disposal visibly contaminated soil. Additional soil analyses will be performed to determine if further site action is necessary. The estimated cost for this IRM is approximately $114,500.
