The 12- to 15-acre Havertown PCP site consists of a former wood treatment facility and an adjacent industrial facility in Haverford Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. It has been estimated that up to 1 million gallons of spent wood preservatives were dumped into a nearby drip well. The disposal practice is believed to be a primary source of contamination to ground water and, ultimately, Naylors Run. In 1976, EPA initiated a response action. The ROD addresses an interim remedy for shallow ground water contamination, as OU2. A subsequent ROD will address sediment contamination in Naylors Run, soil contamination onsite, potential deep ground water contamination from onsite soil, and surface water and sediment contamination due to runoff from onsite soil, as OU3. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including benzene, TCE, toluene, and xylenes; other organics including dioxin, oils, PAHs, PCP, and phenols; and metals including arsenic. The selected remedial action for the interim remedy is included.
