The Pacific Hide and Fur (PHF) site, consists of approximately 11-acres of fenced land, located in the northwest edge of Pocatello, Bannock County, Idaho. The site, a former gravel mining area, was purchased by McCarty's, Inc. (MI), a scrap metal dealer, in 1958. MI purchased scrap metal, batteries, drained transformers, and capacitors filled with PCB oils from various sources, storing them onsite in a previously excavated gravel pit. Also, PHF may have purchased scrap metals and transformers and stored them onsite. EPA declared the site to be an immediate threat to public health and welfare. As a result, approximately 593 PCB capacitors were transported offsite for incineration, and 21 hazardous materials drums and 30 cubic yards of soil were transported offsite for disposal.
