The Geiger (C&M Oil) site comprising a five-acre area, is located in central Charleston County, South Carolina, appoximately ten miles west of the city of Charleston and within one mile of tidal wetlands. Approximately 40 people live within the immediate site area. In March 1969, Adams Run Services, Incorporated, was permitted to incinerate waste oil at the site. Eight unlined lagoons were constructed to hold the waste oil. In late 1971 in response to complaints from area residents, the South Carolina Pollution Control Authority (SCPCA) ordered all incineration and waste deposition activities at the site stopped, and the owner to take action to prevent spillage, leekage or seepage of oil from the site. The primary contaminants of concern include: arsenic, toluene, organics, PCB, and heavy metals (lead, chromium, mercury). The selected remedial alternative includes: extraction and onsite treatment of contaminated ground water with discharge to an offsite stream; excavation and onsite thermal treatment of soil to remove organic contaminants; solidification/stabilization of thermally-treated soil, if necessary, to reduce mobility of metals; backfilling of excavated areas with treated soil, followed by grading and covering with gravel.
