Abstract
The 1.3-acre Fairfield Coal Gasification Plant is a former coal gas generator plant in the town of Fairfield, Jefferson County, Iowa. From 1878 to 1950, gas was generated from coal as an energy source using various processes, each producing an array of by-products that were either sold or disposed of onsite. In 1986, site investigations by the power company found evidence of surface contamination and contamination in the underlying ground water as a result of leaching from buried coal tar wastes. The source of contamination was determined to be the sediments and soil. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, and ground water are VOCs including benzene, toluene, and xylenes; other organics including PAHs; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead.
