The 22-acre Whitmoyer Laboratories site is an abandoned animal pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Jackson Township, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. Land use in the area is predominantly agricultural, and there are wetlands areas adjacent to the site. In 1986, arsenic contamination was detected in nearby residential wells by EPA. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the debris and sludge are VOCs including benzene, PCE, toluene, and xylenes; other organics including phenols; and metals including arsenic and lead. The selected remedial action for the site includes excavating and incinerating onsite approximately 3000 cubic yards of high organic content vault wastes, and approximately 101 cubic yards of miscellaneous products and feedstocks; followed by cement/pozzolan-based fixation, and disposing of the residual ash offsite; treating approximately 1,500 cubic yards of low organic content vault wastes using fixation or a similar process and disposing of residuals along with nonhazardous wastes and other products and feedstocks offsite; demolishing buildings, associated tanks, vessels, processing equipment, and debris.
