The 88-acre Moss-American Kerr-McGee Oil site, a former wood preserving facility, is in Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. The Little Menomonee River, which flows through the facility, lies within the 100-year floodplain and is included as part of the site. A section of the site is wooded, and wetlands are located near the river. Beginning in 1921, operations consisted of wood preserving of railroad ties, poles, and fence posts with a mixture of creosote, which is high in PAHs, and No. 6 fuel oil. In 1973, EPA dredged 5,000 feet of the river directly downstream of the site. During 1977 to 1978, 450 cubic yards of contaminated soil were removed. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses source and ground water remediation. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, and ground water are VOCs including benzene, toluene, and xylenes; and other organics including PAHs.
